Hello everyone!!! So as the whole world knows (I've been telling EVERYONE!) I was selected to be part of The Cutting Cafe Design Team for my FAVORITE time of year, Autumn/Winter!! This has been really exciting for me because there are some really talented paper crafters out there and I JUST started paper crafting!! For this project we were able to choose any file we wanted to work with. So here it is, my first design team project!!
I choose to work with Regina's Tall Cake Shaped Card Template. I just love how charming this file is!! It comes with some great sentiments and accessories to turn into a wedding cake or a birthday cake. You can even pick the type of frosting you want to put on it!! I used it for a wedding cake. My co-worker (Michael) got married on Aug. 31st and I decided to make it for him. This was a same sex marriage so I wanted it to have a few masculine touches starting with two grooms at the top.
I painted the white layer of frosting with Making Memories Pearl Paint as I didn't have a shimmery white paper. Worked great! I used Ranger Liquid pearls to highlight the white and cream layers of frosting and inked everything!! I also wanted a ribbon but thought that it might be too feminine, so I used black grosgrain ribbon to look like a bow tie.
I also used This Cake Is All Heart Printable Stamp Set for the sentiment. I did alter it a bit as I needed the font to be smaller to fit my tag. As I said before Michael and I are co-workers so I wanted to add that element in there as well. We work for The Art of Shaving so I had to add a handlebar moustache!!
Here's the sentiment inside.
I really hope everyone like my first design team project! I had so much fun making it!!!
