Let's Eat Cake! ~ Dies R Us

Did you know that today, November 26th is National Cake Day? I tell ya, here in the United States we will celebrate anything!
In honor of this momentous occasion, I am posting this card I made using Impression Obsession Cake Die.

I started by stamping the paper streamers from PTI's Hooray! on the card front. I cut all the pieces of the Impression Obsession Cake out and colored them with Copics. I cut the Impression Obsession Ornate Oval Frame three times using silver and Kraft card stock and layered it up to give it dimension and added the cupcake to the center of the Kraft oval.

I added some printed paper strips to the left edge of the card and stamped the sentiment from MFT's LLD Delicious Birthday set on the outside strip. Adding the frame to the center of the card was the finishing step!

So whether you choose to buy a cake, bake a cake, eat a piece of cake or make a paper cake, enjoy National Cake Day!

Here's a list of supplies I used:

Thanks so much for stopping by! Blessings~ Birgit
