Scrumptious Cake!

Anyone who knows me knows that I love cake! So when I received the Make a Cake set from Stampin' Up! for FREE at the beginning of this year as a reward I was absolutely thrilled. Stampin' Up have really superb rewards and perks for their demonstrators, so why not contact me for a no obligation chat if you would like these perks too?! Alternatively click HERE if you know you want to go ahead with becoming a demo and receive 6 FREE packs of paper if you sign up before the end of November!

So onto my card, which I have CASE'd from the new annual catalogue (check out page 43 in the catalogue to see the original) - for those that don't know, CASE stands for Copy And Share Everything.

I didn't have a couple of the supplies used in the catalogue sample, so have substituted in stitched grosgrain for the bakers twine, and used the fancy fan embossing folder to replace the argyle embossing folder. The stitching down the middle of the grosgrain is the most lovely detail, check out the bow in the photo below:

The highlight of the card is this fabulous cake, with details picked out in dazzling details glitter, and has been stamped using three of the lush new 'in-colours': Summer Starfruit, Primrose Petals, and Midnight Muse:

Finally a close up of the bunting for you to see, which has been cut from Patio Party Designer Series Paper. If you want to make your own bunting why not check out the Petite Pennants Builder Punch, which creates perfectly sized straight or frilled bunting every time?! Check out page 185 of the annual catalogue:

That is all from me today, so I hope you have fun crafting. Don't forget that the Stampin' Up! catalogue is full of brilliant ideas, so check it out if you want some inspiration!
