Celebrate with Cake!

Celebrate with Cake!

You don’t have to be a professional cake decorator to make great looking cakes.  You can create scrumptious layers of yumminess using Close To My Heart’s “Celebrate with Cake” stamp set, just like I did!

Celebrate with Cake!

I put together this card for my sweet friend Cindy and her new husband Cary.  Just a little something to let them know I’m thinking about them as they celebrate the beginning of their life together.

Rafe and I had the opportunity to really get to know these two when we visited Utah for a Close To My Heart Team Builders event in January 2016.  While Cindy and I were in classes, Rafe and Cary went sight seeing.  (Lucky!)  We had so much fun together!  From talking with Cindy, though, I knew that they had been looking at wedding venues for quite some time.  Most were booked and couldn’t accommodate the wedding date they wanted.

Recently, I opened up Facebook and saw a picture of Cindy and Cary smiling and holding “Just Maui’ed” signs… They did it!  They found a way to tie the knot on the specific day they wanted!  Yay!  Their pictures were simply stunning and I’m so happy for them!

Celebrate with Cake! – My basic instructions:

5.5 x 2.75 B&T
5.5 x 1.5 Glitter CS
5.5 x .25 CS
4.25 x 3.25 CS
4 x 3 PML Card
Scraps of CS & B&T

  • For the cake tops, I stamped (2) sets of the same cake piece image onto the Confetti B&T and Cotton Candy Watercolor B&T (Calypso Paper Pack).  This way I could mix and match the frosting and the cake base.
  • I stamped the flowers onto the Cotton Candy Watercolor B&T as well.
  • I hand-cut all the cake and flower pieces.  I even trimmed off the sides of one of the cake layers and rubbed the edges in Black Ink to keep the cake uniform in design.
  • I used 3D Foam Tape to layer the cake and Whisper CS behind the PML card.

As I have the opportunity to be in my studio more and more you will begin to see more artwork from me start popping up!  I will be highlighting my artwork here on my blog and then filing them into these 2 categories…
