That Takes The Cake!

Okay so I am a little addicted to the Sweet Treats cartridge! I kept wondering about this cart and thinking "okie...seriously how many cupcake cuts does one need". Well evidently one needs at least 20 since that is about what I have in cartridges I own! Ya know the odd thing......I don't even like cupcakes!! HONESTLY! Now if they had a cup-pie I would be all over it! *okie cracks up laughin.

Enough talk about cupcakes since this card is a slice of cake. I just love the saying THAT TAKES THE CAKE, not even sure why though. The cut file is set to cut 4 at a time and all the mats are labeled according to color. Of course you can choose different colors.

I know the colors are a bit odd but I kinda like them! I used a Stampin Up embossing folder for the light purple mat behind the cake. I used mica for the icing and words on the cake.

The card base was a little plain looking to me so I used a Versamark ink pad to stamp some funky flower images on it and I think it added a little something it needed. If you don't have a Versamark pad definitely get one!

I did a bit of doodling to the cake and also faux stitching next to the ribbon. There is Glossy Dimensions on the cherry for some nice bit of gloss.

I pop dotted the cherry on top of the cake and then the cake it's self. Ya know I love some dimension!
