This week's Thursday Challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary was to use this YUMMY looking cake as our inspiration! Wow…so many things…snowflakes, stripes, pearls, bows…tons of items to use on a card! Plus, I think Topsy-Turvy cakes are SO much fun. One day, I'd like to have a big decorated cake like this for my birthday!
So here is my card based on the cake inspiration!
I knew right away I wanted to use the BIG Snowflake #2 die on my card. I ended up using BOTH the snowflake and the Northern Frost Strip die for the small one under the Blue Glimmer Brad. I also used the Snowflake Punch behind the bow! Lots of snowflakes going on!
The base is Marina Mist cardstock, then I layered on Whisper White that I ran thru the Big Shot with the FInial Press Impressions Folder. I made the Snowflake #2 out of Marina Mist, then added Tombow Adhesive Glue on the edges and sprinkled on White Chunky Glitter. I added the Whisper White punched snowflake over the big one. I made a bow out of the length of Marina Mist Satin Ribbon, then used the Subtles Glimmer Brad and the smallest snowflake in the center to hold the bow tied. I placed the bow with a Stampin' Dimensional in the center of the snowflakes.
Finally, I stamped Winter Wonderland from Stampin' Up!'s Bright Christmas in Marina Mist Classic Ink, then free-hand cut it along the curve. It is attached to the front with Stampin' Dimensionals, too.
Lots of sparkle on this card! I love how it turned out! Make sure to check out what the rest of the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge Team did with the cake inspiration! All our cards are totally different…I think you'll love them! And, since you have LOTS of inspiration, we want to see what YOU create! Post it over on inlinkz so we can see!
