MHK Designs - Eat Your Cake


     Welcome to the first of our new releases at MHK Designs, over the next five days we will showcase April's new images and papers. This set is called Eat Your Cake, you can find all our new sets on Etsy and lots more inspiration on the MHK Designs blog.
     I have used the main image and one of the many sentiments to make this card. Making cards for men can sometimes be a little more challenging than for the ladies, but with an image like this it's easy to adjust your colour choice to suit.
     Both items were printed on card suitable for alcohol markers, I then used my Graph-It pens to colour the cake.
     I had a small piece of backing paper in my stash that had stars on it, I thought it would pick out the stars on the cake and keep it on the masculine side.
     The easel card was die cut from a square using a large circle die, just remember to leave enough of the fold to hinge it. The star paper was stuck onto a complete circle die cut with the same die.
     The cake is die cut with a smaller die from the same set and mounted on thin foam pads. The sentiment is also die cut, mounted on thicker foam pads with a star brad on each end to tie the whole thing together. The inside circle is covered with a blueish paper because white just didn't look right, there is space on the reverse of the front to write on.
     For today and the next four days there will be the chance to win a new release set, with one lucky winner getting the whole release, so if you haven't been over to MHK Designs blog yet then here is the link and good luck. Don't forget to come back tomorrow for the next set.
