Mr. and Mrs.





This was a really fun card to make, but fairly hard to photograph because of all the glitter.   Cut the Cake, a July new release from Die-Versions,  is such a versatile die.  It can be used for most any occasion.  

As I didn't have any glitter paper that I liked, I made my own using a Xyron machine and glitter.  Not only is the die a newly acquired item, I just discovered Sparkle N Sprinkle glitter at the Atlanta Scrapbook Expo that I recently went to.  They have lots of fantastic glitter colors and I used their Evening Glow for the flowers as well as the yellow icing on the cake.  The "Mr and Mrs" is a Die-Versions font called A Little Lime that is also glittered using some black glitter that I already had on hand.  The cake itself is covered with a crystal affect glitter.

The lace background was created using an older Cornish Heritage Farms rubber stamp.  I inked it up with VersaMark and then applied Perfect Pearls (biscotti) over the entire thing.  It gives it a very nice, soft shimmery effect.
