Chocolate Cake Birthday Cards

These cards are dedicated to my daughter who thinks that chocolate is one of the four food groups. She likes chocolate with everything. Once even asking for chocolate chips in her omelet. She is only seven years old but I think this is an addiction that will stick with her.

I couldn't resist this 3-Tiered Chocolate Birthday Cake from Miss Kate Cuttables and immediately cut out a bunch in different sizes. I used one on a treat bag for a girlfriend the then made these two cards. For the candles, I used a white gel pen. I mounted the cake with foam squares for dimension and added a little faux stitching with a black pen. The banners are from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbon and I found a nice font from free fonts (great site to get fonts) and then used my silhouette to print and cut. The cards make me crave chocolate.

I am entering this in the Silhouette Challenge CH#3 Faux Stitching

 I added a few more embellishments to the first
card to make it pop. Looks good enough to eat!
