Saturday at last and to kick off the weekend we have a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin'. This week we want to see "Many Layers". I did giggle when I read this challenge as we've all been taking layers off in the recent heatwave!
My starting point for this card was this wedding cake stamp set from Hunkdory. Lots of layers of cake!
I originally stamped the cake and added the bride and groom and stamped the sentiment under it on a rectangle of white card with the intention of just adding lots of mats and layers behind it. In the stamp set however, there was a bunting stamp which reminded me I had this cute heart string die by Penny Black in my NBUS pile and I could create a background with it. I cut it out of three shades of pink and arranged them on some cream card rather than white, so that the white cake would stand out. I mounted the cream on mats of two shades of the pink (I didn't have enough of the third colour) on a 5x7 card base. I coloured the cake with my zigs and fussy cut it.
To prevent it floating in the air I put a strip of pink card under it (a bit like a table cloth). I added pearls where they were drawn in on the cake and then added a strip of pearls to integrate them. I stamped the sentiment, masking off the stick at the bottom (it's designed so that it can be an alternative topper on the cake) on white card. I then die cut it and a pink mat using tattered lace decorative labels dies. I added the cake and sentiment to the card using foam tape and popped a little glamour dust on the flowers and bride with a quickie glue pen. Hopefully, you can see the sparkle in the second photo.
I've scheduled this post as for once I'm getting up early on a Saturday as I'm off to Preston for my next round of facet joint injections in my neck. They can sometimes cause a flare up, so my apologies if I'm late visiting you this week x
