So on the subject of cake and chocolate and all things yummy, I made this project:
The card measures 5 inches square to give you an idea of size and I've used a selection of punches, card and the Sale-A-Bration So Happy For You stamp set. When I first looked at this set I wondered how I could make a card using just this set but I've done it and made lots more too! Here's the card:
I do like to keep things simple so I've stamped the heart image and the 'So happy for you' sentiment on to Whisper White card and patterned pink paper from the Subtles Designer Paper Stack. These have been punched out with various circle punches and layered up with the two square punches. I've used a mix of Crumb Cake (there we go with cake references again!), Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette and Rose Red card. I punched out just part of the sentiment, rather than using it all as I want this to be a birthday themed card. I can't tell you who it's for as I don't want to spoil the surprise!
And here's the cute gift box I made to go with the card. I've used all the same colours and stamps, just added the use of the scallop circle and scallop border punches.
Want to know what's in the box?
This is an idea I totally cased from Pam Morgan at the Stampin' Up! European Convention in November. She showed us how to make battery operated tea lights into the cutest little cakes using stickers from the Nursery Suite Accessories kit.
Here's everything together:
