Spice Cake Collage

I've been holding out on you.
I made today's card about a month ago especially for my Stampin' Fools group and I've neglected to share it with you! Hopefully, it's worth the wait - Ha!

I'm not even sure what style to call this one, Shabby Chic? I dunno, but I do know that when I was making it, I just couldn't stop and each new addition seemed perfect to me. Guess you'll be the judge, huh?
The Stampin' Fools loved it though!

Here's the card:

I took the colors of the Spice Cake products in the Holiday Mini and kind of did my own thing here. My favorite part is the Very Vanilla Velvet Ribbon. It kind of elevates the card from shabby to chic! Ha!

This one has More Mustard for the card base and Pool Party for the layer. I stamped it in Pool Party ink with the Triple Treat Flower stamp and ran it through my Big Shot with the Framed Tulips Embossing Folder then added Crumb Cake ink for some distressing.

The First Edition Designer Paper was torn, then crumpled and sponged with more Crumb Cake ink before adhering to the card front.
I cut a Spice Cake Fabric circle from the Perfect Pennants Die and that's crumpled a little bit and adhered with SNAIL.

The Triple Treat Flower stamp was colored with Sponge Daubers using More Mustard, Pool Party and Early Espresso. They blended together beautifully on the stamp and once I stamped it on Very Vanilla cardstock, I punched it out with my Fancy Flower Punch. It's adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals to the card front.
The greeting is from Teeny Tiny Wishes, stamped in Early Espresso and punched out with the Modern Label Punch. I added a few Basic Pearl self adhesive jewels and finished it off with the velvet ribbon.

Yep, there's a lot going on with this card, but I'm really happy with the way it turned out. I have to say that it does look much prettier in real life, the photo isn't doing it any favors!

So, I've got a busy, busy day ahead of me. I'm finalizing designs for my WOW! Christmas Cards classes over the next two days - and they are gonna be some fabulous cards. I love doing this class each year and the two sessions I offer always fill to capacity. It's awful fun to have happy stampers in the studio!

I'm also working on my Christmas Scrapbook in a Day class later this week. I'll be offering that in November so you have a complete album ready for all your holiday photos before Christmas even gets here! More details on that class coming up soon! I will most likely be offering that as a kit as well, so watch for an announcement.
