Something Old, Something New, Nothing Borrowed Or Blue!

What can I say except I have been looking at a lot of stamps!!!  Everything on my card is old except the stamp image, Huge Cake & Candles (without the candles),  and I do mean huge. What really caught my eye was the way it looked like stacked Boston Creme Pie with fondant for the tops and around the bottom!!  I am not doing sentiments on my cards unless I really need to anymore.  That way I can use them for any occasion.

Images:
  1. Stamped Huge Cake twice and the top twice on CS with Golden Glitz, painted with twinks, embellished with Viva Decor Pens and Stickles glitter.  Added a bow with ribbon from Michaels $1 bin!  Added Glossy Accents to the daisies with Needle nosed bottle.
  2. Trimmed around one whole image.  Trimmed around the top and second cake on the second, and the plate on the bottom. Painted with twinks, embellished with Viva Decor Pins and Stickles glitter.  Added Glossy Accents to the daisies with Needle nosed bottle.
  3. Trimmed around daisies on the two cake top images.  Added Stickles glitter and then Glossy Accents to the daisies with Needle nosed bottle.

Background, Card Front, and Envy:
  1. Stamped CAC Dots on white CS with Golden Glitz.  This was all leftovers from a previous card BG.
  2. Used Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight largest die for top and bottom layer of card.  Cut 2 using white cardstock and 2 using white 80lb. text paper for the back of both CS die cuts.  Attached using GA.  Used my Score-It board to score just at the bottom of the trim, like I did it for this card HERE.  Joined both side together at top above score with GA.
  3. Used largest die for stencil on CAC Dots background for front and inside top. Cut a second die cut to mount the cake on front over CAC Dots.  Used left-over and die to get stenciled bottom piece.  Mounted second cake on top and created bottom dots trim with daisies on the bottom.  Took the two larger left-over daisies from the bottom-top layer for the middle daisy on each for envy and bottom trims.
  4. Used the left-over die cut edge from the inside bottom for the corner of my envy.  (I actually peeled the top layer of the cardstock off to create a thinner envy corner, and then I added the daisies and some small flourishes with twinks Solar Gold.
Thanks for stopping by to look and share!!

Y-U-M-M-Y looking!!! That really is one big cake and it looks delicious! Cute and pretty card and love the bow on top of it.
Great idea not to add a sentiment as they can always be added later.

Fantastic details on this gorgeous card! And no calories...

Fabulous card Shirley. I love this. I never put a sentiment on my cards and my customers prefer that also as it means that the person getting the card can keep it on display longer if they wish.

Beth Norman said...

Oh Shirley, this card is stunning. I can't stop starring at it. In fact, I keep coming back to it while I'm reading my other blog subscriptions. This just might be my favourite card of yours.

That is a beautiful cake and I love the daisies you've used. They added so much to the card and made a gorgeous envie. Pretty die you used for the front and back, too. Just a "delicious" creation.

Wow--what an amazing creation, Shirley!

Carol (Gingerbeary8) said...

How super fun and fabulous this cake is. Best of all it is calorie free...lol I am with you, I don't do sentiments on my cards unless I have too. That way they can be used for anything. I've done that for a long time. CottageCutz just came out with a huge set of sentiments so I will be using those. I don't get to keep those creations-but for my own, I skip the sentiment.
Bear Hugs,
Carol

What a clever idea to change the birthday cake image into a fabulous Boston Cream pie. Such a gorgeous design with great colors, dimension and textures. The die cut base is wonderful too!
