Today’s card share is a couple of cards that I had made using the Make a Cake stamp set …

My “Bride & Groom” card was created in 2012 and not only uses the “Make a Cake” stamp set, but the flower punch from the “Punch Pack” which is also included in the Weekly Deals.  The layering look is created by “scrunching” the flower until the cardstock peels into layers (only then ends).  Just give it a try … it is quite easy.

This designer paper is no longer available, but there are so many lovely papers you could use and match up to the color scheme of the wedding.  The ribbon is the White Organza, and I love this because you can dye it any color simply by adding a few drops of re-inker fluid into some water, then dip your ribbon.  Easier yet … just color it with your marker!

The greeting comes from the “Sweet Essentials” stamp set.  Also used on this card is the Polka Dot embossing folder and the Basic Jewels – Pearls.

As always, I will put the ingredients with links at the very end of my blog for your convenience.

My second card was created in 2013 as one of the first cards I shared when this blog was created.  I used the “Make a Cake” stamp set and combined it with the fun technique of “weaving”.

You simply weave together scrap pieces of designer paper or cardstock to create a fun and interesting mat or background.

On this card, I stamped my cake image directly onto the designer paper and then cut it out to fit into the cake piece.  This makes cake decorating so easy!

The “Make a Wish” greeting also comes from the very versatile “Sweet Essentials” stamp set.  The embossed background was created with the “Square Lattice” embossing Folder.

The punches used for this card are the 1-3/4″ Circle punch, and the “Modern Label” punch that I also used on yesterday’s card.

Thank you for taking time out to visit me today.
