The Paper Players 419 - Design Team Card

It's Clean and Simple week at The Paper Players this week which means there's not only a theme but a crafting style to think about. LeAnne's got us thinking of a sweet treat as our theme. Then think about using lots of white space, minimal layers and embellishments... aim for an uncluttered, clean look.

Cake is definitely a sweet treat! I've coloured the cake and stand, popped them on a funky striped background and added a strip of coordinating paper along the side. Simple and clean. I made this card last week before going to On Stage but if I'd just waited a little bit, I could have had a whole new cake set to play with....

I particularly like the Iridescent Ice icing on this cake.

  1. Beautiful, Jan! I love the bit of sparkle and the paper on the side. Such a cute clean and simple card. This would definitely brighten anyone's birthday!

  2. Cute the sparkle! And the polka dot paper...such a fun Birthday card!

  3. What a great CAS birthday card Jan, the sentiment says it all! I love the background stripes behind the cake, too - all so perfectly balanced.

  4. I love everything about this cake! It looks delish, especially with that yummy icing! The colors are fun..some of my favorites...and your shading is wonderful!

  5. This is such a fab card Jan that would work in lots of colourways! I think I may have to CASE it with the new stamp and punch to which you are referring ;-) Oddly I was particularly drawn to those background stripes; I have this stamp set but never know what to use it for, so thanks for the inspiration!
