The new cake soirée stamp set from Stampin’ Up! is so pretty! The cake reminds me of a wedding cake but since I don’t know of any weddings coming up I think it’s perfect for Anniversaries or a special birthday. I can picture it for a 50th wedding anniversary or a 75 birthday celebration especially.
I embossed the cake in silver embossing powder onto powder pink card stock. Adding touches of colour with a blender pen was fun. Matching the silver cake stand to the hints of silver in the cake really makes the card. I also love how the crinkle ribbon has a touch of shine. All the shiny elements help tie this pretty cake card together.
Berry Burst is used as the card base as well as the ribbon and touches of colour on the cake. I love this colour but was concerned it might be a bit dark to write your message on. This problem is easy to fix with a white inside stamped to coordinate with the outside. The cake soiree stamp set comes with pretty flower stamps that match the cake so it was easy to coordinate.
A matching inside always makes a card extra special!
If you’re making an anniversary or wedding card this would be fun to change out the colours to match the wedding colours. I think friends and relatives would enjoy retelling wedding stories if you asked about the bridesmaid gowns and what their wedding was like. What were your wedding colours?
