Hey Stampers! I am trying to get a card posted at least once per week. So for this weeks card we have a three tier cake. This could be a wedding or an anniversary cake, even a birthday cake!-just add candles;)
The card base is 4-1/4 x5-1/2 on whisper white card stock. I have seen many cakes done this way and have had it in my mind to make one with my touches added to it=) I cut three strips of whisper white cs each one a little larger than the last( I didn't actually use any measurements,just went with it) I rounded the corners of the tops only. I used blushing bride as my frosting. I stamped the design from Always Elegant SS and using the stamp-a-ma-jig for precise placement added the 'frosting'(also from Always elegant ss). I sponged a little around the edges. For the cake stand, I used a strip of blushing bride cs. I punched out the Eyelet Border Punch once in the middle of my cs. I then slid it over to the place where I though would look thin enough to be a table leg. I then did the same to the other side.
I made three flowers out of blushing bride also. To do this, I punch 6 small flowers from the Itty Bitty Bits punch Pack(LOVE these!!) Using my mat pack pad(you can use a mouse pad if you don't have one of these-but I suggest you get one!!) and my paper piercer, I push gently toward the centers of my flowers and roll at the same time. This causes the flowers to roll up and gives them some depth. I sponged some rose red around the edges,and with a little mono adhesive sprinkled some Dazzling Diamonds glitter on my flowers. I use a dab of tombo mono adhesive to place 2 of the flowers together. I punch a couple of the leaves in Garden Green cs from our Bird Punch. I layer these both on the top of my cake.
I played around a little and added a strip of embossed whisper white to the base of the card and ran a piece of sticky strip along the top. I sprinkled this with dazzling diamonds.
I stamped the saying 'Best Wishes' from our Sincere Salutations SS in basic black ink. I made a little boo-boo by smudging my best wishes(OOPS!) so I added another leaf flowing over to the cake. See there is always away to salvage a mistake;)
Well, I hope you enjoy your cake! I'd prefer a brownie myself;)
Until Next Thought,
