Time for another fun Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge and this week I will admit to being a little stumped with my creation. I knew I wanted to use the Cake Soiree Suite from Stampin’ Up! and I was able to get my colour combo from the Sweet Soiree Speciality DSP – Powder Pink, Marina Mist, Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive …. and for most part the card was coming together really well. I stamped the cake image in Powder Pink, cut it out with the matching die from the Cake Soiree bundle added trim using the die to trace two bands using Silver Foil Sheets and embossing them. I placed the cake on a circle I cut with the Layering Circles die from Vellum, I used a Marina Mist marker pen to colour the back side of the circle to give a faint Marina Mist background for my cake. Adding the leave in Old Olive and the sentiment in Marina Mist all was going well.
My big problem started with stamping out three lovely flowers in Rich Razzleberry ink and using my Blends to colour them in before cutting them out with the coordinating die …. now to decide where to place them! I alternated between the top of the cake, in a line across the middle of the cake, just one, one on each tier ….. oh my! I finally settled on the placement you see but honestly still not 100% convinced it works. It really is a great sketch though and would love to see you play along this week.
