Cake Soiree – Happy Birthday Present

Cake Soiree - Happy Birthday Present

Stampin’ Up! catalogs are so versatile!  What?!?!  Yes……not only are the catalogs filled with LOADS of fabulous items, they are also filled with many inspiring projects.  AND they can be used as a cushion while stamping to help ensure you’ll get those solid images.  Woohoo!

So that leads to today’s share, it is the first of four cards  we created at my April Stamping Class [Cake Soiree – Happy Birthday Present].  I know, I know……I’m a little behind in posting.  [grin]  This adorable design was inspired by the image on Page 11 (lower right corner) of the 2018 Occasions catalog.  After looking at it again I realized that I did change it up quite a bit.  My clean & simple aesthetic made for a lovely, clean and slightly simple (Lol!) design.

Card Base:  The “Long & Narrow” Powder Pink base was topped with a Basket Weave embossed Powder Pink layer.  I was jumping with joy when I found that this fabulous folder was carrying over from Sale-a-bration into the new 2018-19 Annual Catalog.  Woohoo!

Present Embellishment:  To add sparkle, I Silver Embossed the Present, colored it (just a little, smile) and then fussy cut.  I then layered it with a couple “leaves” from the Sweet Cake Framelits and a strip of Sweet Soiree Designer Paper.  The Present embellishment was placed on top of a double layer of Vellum circles and popped with Dimensionals to the base.

Greeting:  Finally, the greeting was also Silver embossed onto a narrow Whisper White strip and popped with Dimensionals.

Cake Soiree - Happy Birthday Present Interior

Interior:  The interior is decorated with a trio of flowers (also from the Cake Soiree Stamp Set) embossed in Silver and colored similar to the flower on the Present.  The Whisper White and Old Olive layers were then adhered to the Powder Pink Base.
