Keep Calm and Eat Cake

'Keep Calm and Eat Cake'- if only that would fix everything! LOL!  How gorgeous is this cake from the Luscious Layers stamp set from Flourishes,lc - it certainly looks good enough to eat!!

The images has been stamped onto Flourishes Classic White card stock using black ink and coloured using Chameleon Pens.  It has been fussy cut/hand cut using scissors and  popped up onto the Spellbinders Nestabilities Romantic Rectangles Two Etched Dies using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.   The inside of the Romantic Rectangles Two has been stamped using the Jester-Diamond Background Stamp.

The computer generated sentiment has been popped up across the base of the cake stand and a double Seam Binding bow has been glued to the left of the sentiment.  A handmade butterfly embellishment has been sponged using Imagine Inks and glued onto the know of the bow.  Want2Scrap pink pearls have been adhered around the Romantic Rectangles frame and onto the body of the butterfly.

A card front has been cut/embossed using Nestabilities Hemstitch Rectangles Etched Dies Venise Lace by Becca Feeken and popped up onto a precut pink card base.  The layered image has been adhered to the card front using  Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.
