Some teacher friends needed some refills on birthday cards so I took a little break from the holiday crafting to whip up a few cards for them. I remember when Nichole first came out with the Papertrey set called Piece of Cake. The way that the cake layers come in two stamps so that you can vary ink colors......and the way the fonts mix and match for the sentiments....LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!! I used the same ink colors for the main images on both sets of cards...Ocean Tides, Dark Chocolate and Ripe Avocado. To give a couple options, I used several patterned papers from October Afternoon. The base cards are Vintage Cream and the ribbon is Saddle Stitched Ribbon in Ocean Tide.
I used some glitter on the cake frosting. It's SO sparkly and shimmery. You can zoom in to see it up close.
And of course, I had to use buttons....definitely one of my favorite embellishments. I tied them up with a thin twine. The top card shows two buttons tied together, without cutting the twine.
Okay, I'm off to my quilt class this morning. We've had a bit of a delay for a few weeks so I haven't been. So I'm looking forward to today. Hopefully I'll have some finished blocks to show you soon! And I'm also working on my Daily December Album so I'll have this week's entries to show you. Have a great day everyone!
