Stamp Of The Month: Something Lacy 4

For the last of the “Something Lacy” cards this month, I chose a three tier cake.. For a black and white wedding…how about a black and white cake?

Stamp Of The Month: Something Lacy 4

Something Lacy- 3 Tier Cake

 

 

There are many versions of this card out there, and with good reason, it’s as simple to make, as it is pretty to look at!

To make the cake… stamp the background with a VersaMark Ink Pad on Basic Black card stock, and then emboss it with white powder. The contrast is fantastic!  Can you imagine a real wedding cake in these colors, it would be stunning!

Cut a 1″ strip from the background for the bottom piece of the cake, and cut a 3/4″ piece to use for the other two layers. From the 1″ wide piece, cut a 2″ long segment for the base of the cake. From the 3/4″ wide piece, cut a 1″ inch segment, and a 1 1/2″ segment to use for the top two tiers of the cake. Save the rest for your stash.

Cut a piece of Basic Black card stock 3 14″ x 4 1/4″ for a mat to layer onto the card base.  Cut a piece of Whisper White card stock 2 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ for the second mat, this is what you’re going to adhere the cake to.

Before you adhere the second mat down, build your cake. Stack the layers, trying not to get too close to the top, so it leaves room for the flowers to be added.  Once you have the cake stacked and it’s the way you want it, add a little string of pearls to each tier.

Punch out a couple of flowers (2-3) out of some Whisper White scraps, and use your bone folder to work the petals into shape.  Layer the flowers together and add a large pearl to the center.  Set these aside until you have the last tier of the cake on.

Now, layer the white mat with the cake on it down over the the black mat. Once you’ve got that done, position the flowers at the top of the cake using some Stampin’ Dimensionals, and add your greeting to the inside of the card.

TA-DAH!  Don’t you wish a real cake was that easy!

Enjoy…Karen
