Hope you are enjoying your weekend so far. I was crazy busy last weekend…I drove to PA for my cousin’s wedding on Saturday and then a big seafood boil for Father’s Day on Sunday…so, I made plans to do nothing (except crafting) this weekend. Today I’m sharing with you some cards I made using the Spellbinders May large die kit, it makes a fun pop up cake that you can put together with one or two layers and decorate with numbers, sparklers, flowers, and candles. Here’s what I came up with:
And here are your close-ups:
I trimmed out the panels using the lacey inserts and then backed them with some of the same white cardstock to keep the background pattern from peaking through. Love the texture it gives. I also added a stripe of pink along the bottom of the top layer and then topped it off with some flowers and gems.
Have I mentioned that I love the bloom tool I got to curl the flowers? It’s worth every penny, those flowers and leaves curl so easily and quick too!
I pulled in the Simon Says Stamp Congratulations stamp set for the wedding sentiments – this happily ever after sentiment is one of my favorites.
Here I’ve only used the bottom layer of the cake and put a gray/black “over the hill” theme to it. I’ve kept the pink flowers so it’s still somewhat light. For the 40, I used the dies that were included and just trimmed the sticks off of the bottom.
I’ve used Simon Says Stamp Birthday Bits stamp set for the sentiments. Unfortunately, this is no longer available but you can still find it on eBay if you’re interested.
Always trying to do something a little different…here I’ve cut out each layer twice from vellum and then sandwiched some sequins in between to create a shaker look (they really don’t move around much though). I also doubled up the flowers on this one to give them a bit more depth.
This is another sentiment from the congratulations stamp set – I LOVE the font.
Thanks for stopping by today! xoxo, Sarah
