That Little Bit Extra

Today’s Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop focuses on That Little Bit Extra.  A focus on embellishments, ribbons anything that it a bit more than stamps and ink. Come and hop along with International Demonstrators who will provide you with inspiration on That Little Bit Extra

My project concentrates on the Sweet Soirée Suite. It uses the following from the suite:

  • Cake Soirée Clear Bundle
  • Sweet Soirée Specialty designer Series Paper
  • Sweet Soirée Embellishment Kit
  • And Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes

I decided to push out one of the coloured flower bunches for the cake. Then I decided I’d use the corresponding Vellum and Silver bunch and layered it on top of the original. This gives like a stained glass effect, then added a Clear Faceted Gem to the centre.

I’ve also added some extra Vellum and Silver leaves behind the flower bunch. It decorates the Powder Pink cake which is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added some Glitter Epoxy Shapes to add more glittery effect to the card. What do you think?

Isn’t that velvet ribbon in Marina Mist just gorgeous? I’ve nearly used all of it. I’ve used quite a bit of the Washi tape from the kit and for this card I’ve used it on the insert and the envelope.
