Flowers as a Border is a Piece of Cake

This card really catches your eye with the intense colors of the designer paper and the sparkle from the glimmer paper.  The stamping is minimal and the whole thing went together very quickly . . . as the saying goes: as easy as a "piece of cake".

Actually, the stamp set used on this card is called Piece of Cake. I chose to use just the little flower image (the one that is supposed to be a cake topper) and instead use it to line the sentiment oval.

I love it when I find alternate ways to use a stamp, it really increases the value of a set. Click here to see a project where the flowers were used as intended (as a cake topper).

Color coordination brings a project together: I love this combination with its gorgeous shades of blues and greens. I also love that Stampin'UP! always lists the colors on the Designer Paper packs so you can coordinate ink colors, this green is Mint Macaron. Full product list is at the end of the post

Did you see all the different cakes in this set? The Piece of Cake set has lots of fun imagery expeciall if you're someone who likes to color.

And the set can be bundled with a matching punch.  The card on this post features the set of matching product: a brightly colored cake on a cake plate.

Of course the thing that makes the cake is the frosting, right?  This post shows 3 different ways to add shine to the frosting on the cakes.
