It's Day Two of sneakie peekies for the BIG birthday bash week at Taylored Expressions! I have two more fun projects to share with you today. First up is a pretty card I created with the new Bake Me a Cake Die -- it's a great shape and just perfect for embellishing to your heart's content.

I die-cut the cake from patterned papers and placed it on an oval card base.

There's that darling Curly Border Die! I added glitter to it and it made the best cake topper.

Some liquid dimensionals and more glitter finished off this luscious layer cake!

Next is a set of easy to duplicate birthday cards I created using the new Graphic Greetings Birthday a la Carte stamp. 

I made this matching set by first selecting complimentary patterned papers.

As you can see below, I stamped the graphic greeting in dark brown ink and then stamped again on scrap paper so that I could trim out some of the sentiments. These sentiments can also be used on their own, which I just love.

Yep! That's that Curly Border Die AGAIN! (Told you it was my new fave!)
