Create Along With PTI

Playing along with PTI's Create Along With Us this week. I actually made these cards yesterday using this card from Amy Sheffer as my inspiration. I really liked the idea of making a cake on the front of a card so I went for a graduation theme since I'm going to be needing one very soon.


I used the heart border die and the pre-printed image and die from Nostalgic Notions. I die cut the star using the two smallest stars from MFT's Star Stax. I wasn't completely sold on how the heart border looked, thinking it was too busy, so I made another more CAS card using the same design.

Both of the sentiments are from PTI's For The Graduate.

I'm also adding one of these cards to the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by! Blessings~ Birgit

  18. You made great use of your inspiration! Love your festive cake with star and scallops! I wouldn't have thought of using that softly sponged background, but it's just right on the card.

  19. These are both great looking cards. I like the one with the heart border, it just add a bit more texture. The sponged background just makes the cake want to pop right off the card. Looks beautiful!!!
