Who doesn’t like to make a BIG wish?
I always tell my kids ” Wish Big” when it’s their birthdays or when they talk about the 9 million fun things they want. Really, it feels like 9 million things some days.
Now that Sale-a-Bration is over I’m going back to focusing on sets in the Occasions Mini and sets from the Catalog I haven’t used as of yet.
The Stamp set Big Wish is a very playful stamp set and because of it’s solid stamp images it’s perfect for quick birthday cards.
As I was getting ready to stamp with this set I had a BIG IDEA!!
You know I have a love affair with Vellum right now from this post. Stampin’ Up! made my love affair even greater with the Fancy Foil Designer Vellum.
The big idea was making the cake cover on stamped vellum. The first cake image I stamped was embossed with Gold and then I stamped the macaroons with Coastal Cabana ink. I embossed the cake cover in Gold embossing powder and then cut this out. To attach the vellum piece I delicately placed Tombow glue on the scalloped edge and at the very top of the cake cover.
I loved how the macaroons look soft through the vellum.
I added three pieces of ribbon for this card and just tucked the ends around the Brushed Gold cardstock. I love how these ribbons give the card a delicate feel.
I know we’ve discussed this before, are you using your vellum? Don’t miss out on this great product. Stampin’ Up!’s cardstock vellum is nice and thick and the best in my book.
Ready to recreate this quick card? You can find all the products I used for this card in the links below.
