You Take the Cake

A birthday card for a friend-co-worker, today. This one is from the Just Because Cards cartridge. I only used the cake and the phrase, both cut at 5". The mat on the card is from The Paper Studio Birthday Extravaganza paper stack. I layered the phrase and used Glossy Accents on the 'chocolate' cake frosting as well as the cherry. I also used my Cuttlebug 'Spots & Dots' folder to emboss the green strip of paper on the bottom.
On the inside, I used the scraps of paper from my front mat and stamped a sentiment from the Fiskars Make a Wish Quotes clear stamp set. I love the glossy accents on this!!!


  1. Haha. I love it. I haven't seen that phrase used on a card before and I love it! Thanks so much for sharing with us at the Cuttlebug Challenge! Remember to leave comments on each post to possibly win one of the cartridges! :)
