Stampin' Up! Creative Crew challenges Nov. 2013 - Holiday Focus: Did you know that November 26 is National Cake Day? Use a picture of a cake to inspire a creation.
I used photos of black and white wedding cakes as my inspiration for this card. I used three "tiers" (3-3/4" x 1-1/2") on my card front, each with a different look but tied together (figuratively, not literally) by the ribbon along the left side. The ribbon is also reminiscent of the bands that are sometimes wrapped around the bottom of a cake tier. I added a sentiment and a few butterflies, hoping that black butterflies are elegant or cool, not morbid. To keep the card from being too heavy on the front I also added a Whisper White layer (3-3/4" x 5") on the inside of the card. I stamped the sentiment on the layer, added one more butterfly and attached it inside the card with Glue Dots (they added a little bit of dimension while still allowing the card to close). Thanks for looking!
