FabScraps Floral Delight

FabScraps Floral Delight
This is FabScraps Floral Delight collection.  It is cheerful and bold.  It reminds me of a formal celebration, so I created a fancy cake using  a hat box journal card from the collection. 

Attached are detailed instructions as to how I created this card with all it's elegant layers and details. 

1.    I used a prefolded 5in x 7in white card as my background.  Cut a strip from FabScraps Floral Delight Collection- Delft  paper  - C74004 to fit card lengthwise 2x7in strip.
2.  Punch two strips of white cardstock to be used as edging on strip from step 1 above.   Ink edges of the punch cardstock blue and glue to card.
3.  Pick hat box die cut from the FabScraps Floral Delight Journal Die Cuts -M74001A.  Add cardboard or dimensional foam tape to the back of the diecut and glue to card. 
4.  Glue a piece of scalloped lace under the bottom of the hat box to turn into a "cake".  
5.  Punch some strips of cream colored cardstock and outline the edged of the hat boxes to make them appear as layers of a cake.  Accent with string pearls.
6.  Decorate left side of "cake' with a bow, floral berries, and leaves or punched pine sprigs.
7.  Tuck wooden chevrons into the cluster and top with rolled flowers or small flowers.
