BBTB2/Bakery

Welcome to our BBTB2 Monday show....Our hostess is Julia Moss.... This talented  lady stepped up and had a grand idea.  She took 3 weeks in a row and challenged us with some wonderful themes.  This first week she asked us to design with a bakery theme.   For about 12 or more years I have attended a wonderful Creative Memories Workshop group at a dear friend Judi's house.  We scrapbook, visit, have a wonderful meal and Judi brings out all of the new items from Creative Memories.  I just happened to purchase DIVINE WEDDING, a lovely wedding themed Cricut cartridge that is carried exclusively by Creative Memories.


Here is my card.  I cut a shape card for the cake...something I rarely do.  I couldn't get my Gypsy to wander over to the weld section and wander back so I had to be a bit clever in this shaped design. I cut 2 of the main cake in blue, and one in ivory cardstock which was glued inside after I added a black fold tab. I put the one blue cut onto the black shadow cut, and then I cut the cake in 3 sections and began the popdotting process.  That lowest layer actually has double popdots.  Once I added the pretty scrolled decor on the cake, I also added sweet white pearls, and a blue ribbon.  Before I glued the blue cake layers to the top shadow, I inserted the black fold tab, and this allows me to open and close the card in one piece. The inside of the cake has a EK Success Border and a Happy Wedding Day sentiment on a square punch.  The card is about 5 inches tall and 3 inches wide and fits nicely in an A2 size envelope.

We hope you will join up with our Bakery challenge.  You can use any cartridge that has a bakery/baked item.  Make this a new project, upload to our BBTB2 blog, link back to your blog and be sure to give BBTB2 a shout out that you have joined in on our challenge.  And please make sure that word verification has been disabled.   Thanks for stopping by.

What a beautiful cake card Carole! I love all the pop dotting and the colors along with the embossing! How clever to make a shape card this way. I will have to keep this in mind if I have a problem welding two shapes for a shape card!
