Sandi MacIver – Stampin With Sandi – Hi stamping friends, my share today is A Cake Soiree Stampin Up Birthday Card:
Today’s card design was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge with this week
The Cake Soiree Suite of products is on Pages 12 and 13 of the Stampin’Up! Occasions Catalogue with increased samples on the last page.
What I love about Stampin Up Suites? Everything coordinates!…making card designing so simple.
SANDI’S TIPS & TRICKS FOR THE CAKE SOIREE STAMPIN UP BIRTHDAY CARD:
I began by embossing the background little bit of Whisper White with the Basket Weave Embossing Folder. Then I placed a 4 x 4 little bit of the designer paper over it, cutting both layers on an angle at the same time.
Attach both of these pieces to a Thick Whisper White card
I used the Sweet Cake Framelits set to die slice the beautiful Filigree tag in the background and the Old Olive Leaves. The flowers are pre-printed and from the coordinating Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit.
I added a little piece of the Old Olive 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon before using Dimensionals to add the tag to my card.
Finally, I stamped the sentiment in black ink on a scrap of Whisper White and trimmed it before attaching it to the card.
This card layout is ideal for using up small items of Designer Paper and the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Paper has some lovely choices.
