Just a couple of cards for ya!

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Tuesday, January 20, 2009
Hi there! I got a few minutes to myself while Bradley was snoozing and Emily was at school - Yay!

So, I "whipped" up a few cards!

There is a Cake-Inspired challenge going on over at CafeMom and I really liked this idea!
Here's a photo of the cake that was to inspire us:

Gotta love those Martha Stewart cakes, huh? Anywooo... the challenge stated that we were to "bake" a white card. Everything had to be white, except embellishments and, of course, the image.. I used my Cuttlebug with the Happy Birthday embossing folder, my new Pinking Circles Nestabilities (both the small and the large sets) and Stampin' Up! retired Riveting stamp set. The blue is Stampin' Up In-Color Pacific Point.

So, here's my card:

I also was asked about ideas for wedding invites today, so while I was playing and because I liked this idea so much, I did this card as well - (I again used my Cuttlebug with the Swirls folder, Oval Nestablities, Bazzil Bling blue cardstock, Stampin' Up! Tiny Talk stamp set and Martha Stewart pearls). I think that the blue oval is too large... but I don't have the small ovals set... yet... so this will have to do!

Hope you enjoyed my cards! Now, go bake a cake and make a card to match!

Very Elegant Miss Dee!
I love the wedding invite one. I need that CB folder. :-) I think you could even bypass the "you're invited" on the front and just have all of the deets on the inside! Very elegant!
Love it!
