Die-Cut Filigree Dress Card for Mother's Day or Birthday | Tonic Studios Step-by-Step Tutorial #3

With Mothering Sunday just over a week away, I thought I'd film how to make this die-cut filigree dress card, as it would make a gorgeous Mother’s Day card layout. My Step-by-Step Video Card Tutorial features Tonic Studios Verso Indulgence dies (but you would be able to achieve a similar effect with other dies) and is a deceptively quick and easy card to make. This versatile card design idea could also be used for a homemade Birthday Card, too.

Card Recipe:

Tools: Tonic Studios Indulgence Boudior Square Base DieScallop Circle Layering Dies, Grand Calibur
Paper and Card: Linen card, Conqueror
Image: Katy Sue Designs Fabulous Fashion CD-Rom
Embellishments: Flatback pearls, mulberry flowers

How to Make a Marshall Paw Patrol Pup Birthday Cake - Video Cake Decorating Tutorial #1

Paw Patrol Cake Decorating Video Tutorial

Marshall Paw Patrol Pup Birthday Cake

Marshall Paw Patrol Pup Birthday Cake Face
Last week, my lovely niece turned 4 years old (where does the time go?) and she is absolutely mad about Paw Patrol. She’s been talking about having a Marshall Birthday Cake at her Paw Patrol party for, well, almost a year. And for it to be absolutely paw-perfect, it had to be of her favourite pup, which is Marshall

Paw Patrol Cake Decorating Video Tutorial

So, I've filmed a step-by-step cake decorating video tutorial on how I made this Marshall Paw Patrol cake, just click on the picture below to view!
If you're thinking that you could never do something like this, it may surprise you to know that this was my first attempt at a 3D character cake. My video breaks it down into "bite-size" (excuse the pun) steps, and I show you all the little tips and tricks I used such as using mini-flower cutters for Marhsall's Dalmatian spots. 
Making this cake was a labour of love (just over 20 hours to complete) but so worth it for the look on her face when she saw it. And was so thrilled with the way it turned out.

Edible Elements

 All the elements were edible, something my niece can attest to when she ate Marshall's fire-pup shield! And, if you watch the video to the end, you can see what I used to make the "glass" in Marshall's torch.

Would love to know what special birthday cakes you've made, do let me know in the comments below.
