CCMC139-Cake Inspiration

Today's challenge at Create with Connie & Mary is a "Cake" challenge. Each month we have to draw inspirations from these fabulous cake creations.....WOW!

My Card:

The first thing that popped into my head was 3D flowers!

.......and I added a few strings of pearls and made it into a wedding card.
I have 2 sizes of flowers. The first one is created with the "Island Floral Die". I cut 4 out of "Peach Parfait" cardstock. Once cut, I used my paper "Crimper" and ran them through about 6 times. I then took my "Bone Folder" and while holding each piece one at a time, rubbed the "Bone Folder" from the center out to break the fibers. Once this is done, you can actually peel the flower into 2 layers. Scrunch up all 8 pieces, unfold, poke a hole in the middle, add a brad, and shape the way you want for your flower.
The smaller flowers are made with the "5-Petal Flower Punch" and I cut 3. Assemble in the same way.

Supplies Used:


  1. Your wedding card is gorgeous. I love the embossing and the pearls!!! But those flowers take the cake for me!!! I'm gonna peel me some cardstock today!!! Gorgeous, rich colors, too. Hugs,

  2. Beautiful card! So elegant and lovely!! The string of pearls is the perfect touch! Love it!

  3. Debbie, I love those flowers, the texture you get from breaking down the fibers in the CS and peeling the layers apart is wonderful. Thanks for telling how you did it. These colors really pop on that white background.=D

  4. SO PRETTY! I just love these 3D flowers. Great job!
