Happy Surfday!

Happy Sunday, everyone!  Hope you all are enjoying your weekend.  Still deep in the unpacking mode around here, so no major weekend happenings except getting rid of more boxes.  Yuck!  I did manage to sneak some stamping time though.  Gotta have a sanity break, right?

During the summer it seems like we are always getting invited to birthday parties with luau or beach themes.  I have already told you how much I LOVE the Paradise Beach paper from Echo park, so I decided to make a beachy (making up words now) cake with it!

To make the cake, I just cut three rectangles from the patterned paper that I chose.  No exact science here, you can make your cake as big or small as you would like.  Just start with your biggest layer on the bottom and work your way up to the top, getting smaller as you go.  Easy peasy!  Now you can make a cake from any papers you like.

I rounded the corners of the tops of my layers with a corner rounder.  Instead of candles on top I cut three of the little surf boards from the patterned paper and glued them on top.  Once those little surfboards hit the top, this was dubbed a "Surfday" card.  Ha!

The sentiment is from Bold Sentiments III: Birthdays (SP & Co.).  It is stamped on cream colored cardstock in brown ink.  I trimmed then end to make the banner and mounted it where it hangs off the side.

Whatever you are doing this weekend, try to stay cool!

Thanks for stopping by,

VERY cute! Love how the swirls on the card base work with the swirls in the blue cake layers. Great way to use the surf boards, too!
