Freebie Friday: Free Printable EAT CAKE Birthday Card

I made another greeting card using my camera instead of making one from scratch!

Several years ago I purchased a vintage black briefcase at a garage sale  to make a storage area in my studio.  I had so much fun decorating the front, back and inside!  Since it was mine I could make it as whimsical as I wanted and I used a bunch of printables that I applied with Mod Podge.

This side makes me smile everytime I look at it!  I mixed up acrylic paint to get the dusty rose/peachy paint and made the polka dots and stripes on the sides.  Finally, I got decorative metal corners to add some pizazz to each corner.

I attached black wire hooks on the insides to store items I put on card tags.  This briefcase sits on the top shelf on my work table and the other day I had the idea to take a photo of the briefcase for a birthday card.

I had to crop the photo to 5 x 7 and add the label “Eat Cake”.  Isn’t it fun to multi-purpose art work?   I made a free printable to you to print out as many times as you wish.
