Ruby Red Eat Cake

I needed a birthday card and I wanted to use the set "Eat Cake" so I went on Split Coast to the gallery and opened up "Eat Cake" and began looking at all the fabulous posts. I had hardly been looking when one caught my eye. It was a card made by coshorty. I didn't CASE it completely. I changed the colors and background. I didn't use brads, instead I used a gem from the Blog Candy I won!! I also added some glitter to the dots in the background. I had used the "Petals" jumbo wheel with Ruby Red ink. I sometimes prefer to use ink instead of VersaMark because the ink is a bit darker. And there are times when I want the look to be softer, that's when the VersaMark comes in to play. I used Bravo Burgundy as my main card color. I layered that with the Ruby Red and the new decorative papers. For the cake base I used Bravo Burgundy and the cake itself is Ruby Red and Pretty in Pink. It's a cheery birthday card. A few layers but not a lot of work or time involved in it. The decorative papers help to make a card like this a "quick card!"

Thank you for stopping by!

Love this set and such a wonderful card, I love all of the bling. Looks GRRREAT! I get my first try at the new postage rates on friday I have some blog candy and RAK cards going out, thanks for the tips I did not realize that our handmade cards were getting so outrageous to mail, I will keep this in mind while making my RAK cards and swap cards.
