When I saw Mojo’s sketch on Monday I had nothing to pair it with to get me started.  I found the inspiration photo on Diva’s blog and unearthed my wonderful cake stamp from impression obsession (see above photo).  I regret to admit that this card took waaaay to long to create! I cut out pattern paper that was too busy and tried the cake several different ways until I reached my happy place.  I ended up stamping the cake on craft paper with brown ink twice and layering the two with pop dots to make it stand out more.  I also stamped it a third time on cream colored paper and cut out the plate which helped make the piece of cake become the focal point.  The yum yum stamp is a Stampin Up oldie along with the two punches.  
TIP: The cream colored paper was a thrift store find of index file cards which are thicker then card stock and great to stamp on.

  1. A really super card, so much lovely texture and depth to it. That image fascinates me, with all the lovely patterns in the cake layersThanks for joining us at Cardz 4 GuyzJane


  2. Great color combinations! This is first card I have seen with a slice of cake in it. IMHO, a slice of cake make the card more 3-D than creating a whole cake. Because of the array browns, this could be a masculine card. What do you think?


  3. Great design with this fabulous cake image! What a sensational card for Chocolate Cake Day! The diamond patterned background is perfect paired with the fishtail banners on this wonderful layout!


  4. FYI. Please fix your link on your website called \”Follow me on Pinterest\” to aim to \”pinterest.com/creativeseconds/\”. Then you may have a piece of chocolate cake! 🙂 Thanks. Brent
