25th Wedding Anniversary

I had made a card like this a while back for one of my customers and she called and wanted another one so I thought I would post it and share with you...This cake by Jolees is so detailed!
I started with a white card then added a sage on that to go with the leaves on the cake...Not sure if you can see in the photo but I then put a sheet of printed vellum on that and an embossed vine paper on the bottom...As I tryed different layouts I thought this one kind of looked like a cake sitting on a pretty tableclothed table....I then finished it off with some pretty ribbon and a circle punched layered 25 with a jumper ring attached for some shine...Tip on the vellum....When using vellum on this I didnt want my double back tape to show so I made sure I place it where the cake would cover it up...You really dont have to tape down the corner of the vellum it gives it a neat look with out that...between the tape and the ribbon on the left this keeps it in place...These stickers are so fun to use all you really need to do if come up with a pleasing layout and coordinate your colors and add some pretty papers (Darn I wish I would have tucked the ribbon behind the cake plate on the bottom left before I took the pic, too late I know I am picky, lol)...Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Supplies: Jolees Sticker, MM Papers, Ribbon, Circle Punches, Jumper Ring

THis is absolutely stunning, Cookie. I particularly adore the sweet embossing on the vellum. It's the perfect touch!

Oooooh.........this is fabulous and thanks for the tip about the vellum. I avoid using it b/c it's so transparent and I can never seem to find the right adhesive for it!
