Cake Soiree

Good Morning!  I have just returned from a wonderful week in my favorite little spot in Florida.  I actually took my laptop with me - with plans to blog in the early mornings when I got up - but on day one,  I realized I had forgotten my power cord - with almost no battery power -  and wasn't able to post -  perhaps that was a good thing!  

Today is my birthday -  I thought I'd share a pretty birthday card, featuring the Cake Soiree bundle again!  This is another card that I shared at Onstage Live this past November. 




The card base is Marina Mist - and that is the ink I used as well to stamp the cake.  I used a blender pen to blend the flowers and also added a touch of green for the leaves with Old Olive ink.

With the Big Shot, and Sweet Cake framelits, I cut out the cake.  I used my precision plate to cut both pieces of the cake stand -I love the detail of the stand!

The cake topper is one of two cake toppers in the stamp set - I stamped it on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and cut it out with my paper snips.

I adhered the cake stand to a piece of Whisper White cardstock - this was embossed with the Scattered Sequins Dynamic Embossing Folder.

I made a "swirl" of Silver Sequin trim and attached it with dimensionals behind the cake, and then placed it over the cake stand.  I put the cake topper on the cake with a mini dimensional.

To finish the card, I added two rhinestones onto the cake. Here's a close up-


Best part of my birthday?  Getting to spend it with my four beautiful girls!  These girls fill my heart with such joy!  I am so blessed!

  3. The cake topper has long been a tradition at weddings. And next to the wedding rings, the baked comfort food topper often holds more symbolism than any other item at the special day's events. A cake topper can also add the perfect touch to a birthday, anniversary and other special occasion cake.
