Anniversary Cake

I'm sharing my weekly project at Make the Day Special a day early this week and as it's our niece and nephew's wedding anniversary this weekend I made a card for them.   I decided to use Fanfare from Avery Elle to make them a cake instead of baking them one ;-)

I stamped the two layers of cake onto some lovely paper from Echo Park (Victorian Garden set) and as all the papers in that pad are double-sided I used the reverse to create the cake ribbons and bows and paper-pieced it all together.  To add a little dimension to the ribbons, I used a couple of shades of toner grey copics to knock the "insides" back a little - toner greys are your friends when you don't have the exact shade you need.  I stamped the sentiment from the same set onto the larger cake.

For the cake stand I stamped and embossed it in gold on a scrap of card and fussy cut it before sticking it down and outlining it in black to match the cake.  I cut it out with a nestie and used the larger die to cut a mat from the same patterned paper I cut the ribbons from.

I finished with a little sheer lemon ribbon and a liquid pearl centre to the bows.
