Throwback Thursday

This is a Beach themed wedding cake I made for an associate at work about 4 years ago. Unfortunately, it shifted during transport, so is less than perfect.

I had a lot of fun with the shells and plumeria…..everything is made from white chocolate! I ordered some molds off Etsy, and just had a blast! I even got to eat my mistakes, which were many, as I experimented with the corrects colors I was looking for.

Thinking of you Rosa!

Escape to the Beach Card

This is one of those times when I saw a card, and made it mine! Meaning that I saw one using the exact same background paper, and the lacy die-cuts, but when I went to decorating it, it took on a life of its own.

Using Heartfelt Creations Sea Breeze Collection, and the Courtyard Elegance die (folded in half, as you see) , I added some fern die cuts, and used the classic rose stamped in light oranges and yellows, and put in some stamens for a different look.

Definitely will do this one again, as it doesn’t quite fold perfectly flat (hot glue leaks through the cut outs behind the flowers anyway!) but I’m definitely tickled with how it turned out!
