Let's Eat Cake!

I created this card for the SSSC166 challenge.  My dads birthday is coming up at the end of this month, and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to make his card.



I used stamps from the Simple Stories and Unity Happy Day set called "Life's Short... Eat Cake".  I stamped the cake in Distress Ink Spiced Marmalade.  The sentiment is stamped in Distress Ink  Tumbled Glass.  The papers I used are from MME Follow Your Heart Be Amazing collection.  I really wanted to keep this card simple and masculine for my dad, but I had to add a little flair with Stickles on the cake and a Spellbinders Picot Circles Die.  The banners are canvas banners from Prima.  The burlap twine is from MME.  I machine stitched around the papers with white thread.


 
The inside is finished with all of the same materials as the outside.  I left a little area blank for adding a personal message.  I hope you enjoy this card.  Please leave comments or questions below.  I always love hearing from you.  Have a wonderful Labor Day, and as always, stay crafty!
