FMS 371 Inkspire Me 384

I'm still enjoying playing around with my new sets from the Occasions catalogue. One set that hasn't had much attention from me yet is Piece of Cake and its matching punch. Time to change that!

For inspiration, I used the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and the colour combination from Inkspire Me.

The set has many different cakes and topping and sentiments to pick from but I thought there was a richness and formality in the colour combination that suggested a wedding to me. So here's how that turned out...

The cake, stand and cake topper heart are popped up on dimensionals. More difficult to see are the clear epoxy hearts, one on the sentiment and one on the vellum circle. The third is on top of the cake topper heart as it turned out that that heart was just the same size as the largest of the clear epoxy heart embellishments. It's a perfect fit so I put on top to give it some shine.

The black lacy edge is from the new Doily Builder thinlits.

Since the card is square, it required a custom-made envelope. I had some retired DSP in Smoky Slate which I used in the Envelope Punch Board to make the envelope, then I embellished it to match the card.
