Mmmm... giant sandwich! KIU November challenge

My go at the Kraft It Up challenge for November which was to create a minimalist layout using a lot of white space... what do you reckon? I probably could have gone a bit more minimalist, but hey, it was a birthday photo, it needed lots of colour and ink splats and stuff.   :)

The photo was taken at Ty's 4th birthday party earlier this year... we had a bowling party and I made the cake he requested.... a giant sandwich! I figured it wouldn't be too hard seeing as how it's a plain square cake with some bits inside, although getting the 'ham and salad' fondant pieces not to crack in the January heat was a bit of a challenge!

Here's the finished product - I was pretty happy with it! It's even got sesame seeds :)

Materials used:
Kaisercraft cardstock, Thickers, October Afternoon chipboard, washi tape, Basic Grey brads, Echo Park Note to Self number strips, white Mister Huey's, brown Versacolour ink, Fairway chalkboard mist.


  1. AWESOME cake!!!
