For this card I used Cake Soiree, by Stampin' Up. It comes by itself or in a bundle with coordinating dies. I used the dies for the cake stand and bow, as stand alone elements. I then stamped the cake on Stampin' Up white card stock, die cut with the coordinating die and mounted on some pretty patterned paper, adding some filament behind the cake. I finished it off by adding some pearls and mounting on black card stock. I think the longest steps where weeding that intricate cake stand, but it's so pretty! I love that this is another card where I didn't do any coloring in, yet isn't missing color. I let the paper shine instead. The grey/yellow/white is super elegant too.
Elegant doesn't necessarily mean fussy and time consuming. Remember this next time you need a quick card for an elegant event. See you next week!
