Have you ever made your own Christmas/celebration cake? And if you made one did you decorate it with royal icing? Well I use'd too but not so much now . I particularly remember making Christmas cakes with lots of rough royal icing and putting little figures of Father Christmas or snow covered Christmas trees on top. Why are you asking am I talking about royal icing?? Well for today's Throwback Thursday Penguin Place card I've used something that reminds me of it!!
I started out with one of the new masks in the Adorning designs decorative masks. I chose the snowflake one to go with my penguine Christmas theme.
Once I'd secured the mask over a mat of dark blue cardstock I used a pallette knife to apply White embossing paste through the mask. I used a dabbing motion to make it a rough surface. Once done I immediately placed the pallette knife and mask into warm soapy water. I left the panel to dry.
Next I decided to fussy cut some of the characters from the super cute pattern paper that is available with a qualifying purchase called Penguin Playmates from Stampin' Up!
Once I'd cut ot my characters I stamped one of the cute sentiments from the Penguin Place stamp set. I then mounted my snowflake embossed panel onto a white mat and secured a length of shimmery white ribbon along the width of the card.
After mounting the panel onto a dark blue card base I added my characters and sentiment using 3d foam. Then I added a few sparkley sequines to give it a little more sparkle
Now the texture of the paste is so much fun and brought back memories of those long gone christmas cakes 😁
To add a little something to my card I also decorated a panel for the inside. I used the mask again but this time blended dark blue ink through it. Another length of ribbon and I was done.
I had great fun making this card and remembering those Christmas cakes 😋 . I do so love a mice rich fruit cake . What about you? Are you old school fruit cake and royal icing ? Or more modern sponge and fondant icing?
