Cakes and Pearls


Today's card is On a Pedestal and I've gone very girly.  Let's face it, us girls like a bit of cake especially on a special occasion.

The card base is Concord Crush.  I've layered a piece of Blushing Bride patterned paper on top.  The patterned paper is from the In Colour 6" by 6" stack.  Each of the papers is double sided and there are 12 sheets of each colour.  The best part is you can earn this stack free as a hostess gift. 

I stamped the pedestal in Concord Crush and added six basic pearls.  Then using my Stampin' Write Markers I coloured the cake with Concord Crush and Blushing Bride for the icing. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to position it and added a cherry to the top to finish off.  I mounted the Whisper White panel onto a Concord Crush rectangle which had been edged with the Scallop Trim Border punch.

The sentiment is from So Happy For You and this was stamped in Concord Crush and punched out using the Decorative Label Punch.  To add a layer to the label I punched out a second label from Blushing Bride Card, cut it in half then attached this to the back of the Whisper White label.

I hope you've enjoyed looking.  I'm going enter this into The Friday Mashup which this week is ribbon, pearls and all things girly.

Another super card Aileen, like how the border punch echoes the design of the cake stand. xx
