Celebrate with Cake

Celebrate your big day with cake! After all, the cake is always the focal point of all the decorations. And if your celebration is the talk of the town we have the idiom: Her celebration takes the cake! 

   Big Day

   Basic Black A-2, 2 3/4 x 3 1/4
   Whisper White 5 1/4 x 4 (2)
   Best Year Ever DSP:
      Speckled: 3 1/4 x 1 3/4
      Horizontal Rectangle: 1 1/4 x 4 1/2

   White Craft
   Coastal Cabana
   Daffodil Delight
   Calypso Coral

   Heat Embossing

   Embossing Buddy, White Embossing Powder, Basic Rhinestone Jewels, 2 1/2" Circle Punch, Adhesive

Since you are heat embossing on black cardstock, it is absolutely necessary to rub the embossing buddy over the black cardstock before stamping and applying the embossing powder. This will reduce the static cling. If you do get white embossing powder where it does not belong, simply brush it off carefully with a small, thin watercolor brush. This white embossing on black gives the impression of a chalkboard image.

Next, color in the sentiment with your Blendabilities, Stamping Blends, Copics, or Markers.

Note that I also colored my rhinestones using the Coastal Cabana Blendability marker. Make sure it is dry before grabbing it to place on your card.

I simply used adhesive to put all the pieces together on my card. You may choose to raise your sentiment a bit and use dimensionals.
