"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." ~ Isaiah 55: 8-11

WEDDING CAKE CARD / 2S4Y #59


Here's a quick 30 minute card for one of my co-workers who is getting married this weekend!



I used Kazan's sketch #59 over at 2 Sketches 4 You. Use your imagination & you'll see it - lol

I loved this paper the moment I saw it & it just screams 'wedding' to me! Unfortunately it's retired... [sigh]. I used the corner rounder punch on the top of each cake layer. The ribbon is Kraft, also retired Stampin' Up!. For the bottom 2 layers, I cut & border punched the blue first. Then I punched the white and lined it up where I wanted the scallops to fall, then marked each side where I needed to trim. The sentiment is stamped in Crumb Cake (Kraft) just under the bottom layer - I didn't want it to be very prominent. Some cards are so "art~like" to me, I hate to mess them up with sentiments! I went to the sewing store over the weekend and bought this dainty lace trim which I tucked under the bottom layer so it only pokes out a little. Sorta like a slip - lol! Let's hope the bride's slip doesn't show on Saturday!

Bye for now...
