I'd add dry embossing. Either to the kraft, or preferably the white so long as I had a folder that wasn't too detailed to distort the delicate font in the sentiment.

Lela - I think if it was mine, I'd frame the entire white strip with color (the white on kraft is a little too neutral) - also the olive colored brads kind of fade into the kraft so I might get red ones but set in the left had corner in counterpoint to the poinsettia.

I would also frame the white strip with color - possibly the same green the sentiment is stamped in. I would also probably do some doodle drawing in that same green on the white (a combination of dots and lines). I have also been loving those deep embossing folders and I think the cable knit or small hexagon EF on the kraft would be pretty cool.

Try this and see what you think...

Make the white strip a little bit wider and put a narrower strip of red behind it, top and bottom.

Put the ribbon on the white...about 1/3 of the way down the white, then place the poinsettia over the ribbon about 1/3 of the way in from the left.

Stamp your sentiment between the ribbon and the bottom of the white strip towards the right.

I would place the brads on the white, if you still need them.

The placement of that red and white panel would be like your original...more space at the top.

My thoughts always run to design...rule of thirds and draw the eye to a focal point.

Default Icing on the Cake, another attempt.

My goal is a simple 'grocery' store deli cake.
Have several more hours with masking. Even got out the stampamajig to try and learn that.
Have you tried the set?
Gah.
Whisper white and Cherry cobbler.
One on foil is blushing bride.
Tee hee even tried roses with modeling paste. Pfft, they are already in the trash.



QUOTE=NicholeC;21531948]Cute card - I just bought this set, but haven't used it yet. Maybe you could you stamp a flower and cut it out, then pop it up on top of one that you stamped on the card (I'm thinking the one in the corner maybe) to give it some dimension? Or some Wink of Stella on the flowers to add some bling?[/QUOTE]

I actually still like your first card, though I think you deleted it from the gallery. These ones look as if you've achieved your goal, they certainly look like the simple iced cakes I see at the bakery counter.

Have you seen other cards with the set that you like? Can you analyse why they work.

I agree with Sabrina, these do look like you achieved the objective of looking like the simple iced cakes from the grocery store. I'm not understanding where you're doing the masking. I looked up the set and it looks to be clear photopolymer so you should be able to see where you're stamping as you work, is that right?

Thank you.
I am reading it looks ok. Thank you.
Yes, the first card was deleted, so flat looking. So first attempt looking. (Dramatic eye roll)
There are three cards in gallery and not three that tickle me at all.
Think I will keep on, perhaps make a sturdier mask.
I do appreciate your comment, thank you. Have a great week!

I see, yes, there aren't many in the gallery.
Since the advent of Pinterest, many people just upload directly to their Pinterest account and (sadly) not here. So try searching there. If you don't have a Pinterest account (I don't), search Google Images, because it will bring up most of the pinned images. Not that I see a whole ton there either, but there might be something that either inspires you or reassures you that you're on the right track.


Google Images search results


I think some sets are just hard to achieve in practise what we imagine.
