Every once in a while I like to pull out some old, neglected cartridges... today is was Celebrations!
I made this shaped card on my Gypsy, sizing the shadow layer to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" (standard A2). I welded two of the shadow layers together to form the card base, and cut out another shadow layer (in black) to hide the folded edge of the card base.
I cut all the layers of the cake to fit the shadow but added a couple scalloped borders from Plantin Schoolbook and some pennants from Celebrations. I also embossed the off-white cake layer with D'Vine Swirls.
I added doodling with my Glaze Gelly Roll pens in blue and green. I used little alphabet beads to spell out "YUMM" on the banner!! LOVE IT! Green and white twine finish off the banner and adds more details to the cake plate. I used my Bow-Easy to tie the triple loop bow on the bottom right side.
I've had a few people comment on my welding technique so I added this picture so you can all see exactly how my card is built. I just used heavy weight card stock for the green card base.
