Crafty with Caly: Do What it Cakes

Hi friends! Happy Tuesday! Please join me in welcoming back special guest Caly Person in a bi-monthly edition of our Crafty with Caly blog series showcasing our brand new Do What it Cakes stamp and die set! Be sure to read on and watch the video for all the details! Enjoy!

Hello, Friends! It’s Caly with you today, sharing a wedding card using the Do What It Cakes set. This is a versatile set for all occasions, but I had to color those pretty flowers and decided to make a wedding cake.

I love that the tiers can be stamped and die-cut separately– it gives the finished card more dimension (if you want) and layers so nicely to give height to the cake. I’ve got a video to share my process! You can watch it here:

WATCH THE VIDEO:

Weddings always include shine and sparkle – so I tried to achieve gold using both Copic markers on the cake stand and ink on the sentiment medallion. Be sure to check out the video to see how that’s done!

Copic colors used:
Cake: R000, RV10, RV91, RV93
Stand: Y00, YR21, YR24
Flowers:
R83, R85, R89
Foliage: G24, G28, G03, G09

Simon Says Stamp Ink colors used: Lemon Chiffon, Catkin

To give my card lots of texture, I used the Blossom Field Embossing Folder over the Fog cardstock background. It reminded me of lace! Then for my sentiment, I used a craft knife to add small slits to the sides to feed some twine through it for another element of interest.

To finish my card, I embellished it with some iridescent jewels. I hope you like it! This set could be used to create a very similar card for a birthday theme too! I can’t wait to see what others create with this set!

Thanks for stopping by and spending some time with me today! ~Caly

  2. What a pretty wedding card. The dimension you added to the cake was interesting and also the treatment of the medallion was very unique. Thanks for sharing your talents with us.
