A Dirty Dozen Card!

I can finally show you one of the cards I made for the March Fan Club/Dirty Dozen Gallery over at Splitcoaststampers. Since it is a pay-to-see gallery, I have to wait 3 months before I can show them anywhere. The March theme was "TV Dinners", so we could make anything regarding a TV Show, food, anything relating to either television or food!
This card was made inspired by the TV Show "Amazing Wedding Cakes" on the WE channel. I could watch that show all day long! And now there are a couple of more of these type shows on. Cake Boss, Ace of Cakes! I just love watching them make a creative masterpiece out of flour! I am in awe of anything I wish I could do!! So for my card, I simply drew a stacked three-tier wedding cake on some white cardstock and cut it out, leaving the top on the fold line. Then I ran it through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder, added some Rubber Cafe stamped butterflies and Inque Boutique stamped flowers and sentiment, some pearls and some punched Martha Stewart branches. I "painted" the butterflies with some Pink Poinsettia Shimmerz! {And don't forget to scroll down a couple of posts to see how you can win some Shimmerz!} I hope you like it!

And speaking of making cakes, look at my friend Kristine's Blog, where she posts all the cakes she makes! Amazing! I'm so jealous!! ;)

Have a wonderful day!!

Hugs,

You never cease to amaze me Lissa!! LOVE THIS wedding card. Your shimmery butterflies and the flowers look so perfect on there. :)

Thanks for the shout out on my cake blog too! Would be so fun (and challenging) to make a 3-tiered wedding cake!! The hardest part would be delivering it without any falling over or indents etc. EEEKS! :)
