Birthday Cake Card with icing and sprinkles!

I put a big ol' iced birthday cake in the last custom baby album I made. I liked how it turned out so I used the idea for my nephew's birthday card.
I used my trusty ol' Studio alphabet dies from Quickutz to cut out the word "Sweet" and I used a die and a stamp from Close to My Heart for the "Birthday Wishes". The icing on the chocolate cake - now that was messy but worth it!

I used Snow Tex. It's a paste that dries hard and bumpy and looks like snow. While it was wet, I sprinkled micro beads in it. The Snow Tex holds them quite well! I did smoosh them in a little bit with my finger.
I made it in time for his birthday but my husband wanted to wait to the weekend when he could put the gift in to give it. Then, the weekend came and went, so the card was handed over quite late, but it was ready before! (Of course, I wrote a custom sentiment for the inside too!)

I like how this can be a unisex and any age card. Everyone likes food, right? You can change up the colours to make it more feminine or masculine as desired too.

Have you tried Snow Tex? I've seen winter scenes with it where some glitter was dropped in while it was wet. Really pretty effect. (I mean to try it.... someday!)
