Happy Anniversary To You!

Here's an anniversary card I made using the cake from the new set "Year after Year." I stamped it in VersaMark and then used pearl embossing powder on white card stock to give it a more elegant look. I wasn't happy with how it was going to so I decided to add black for the layers so the white and design would stand out better. I think it worked! It's very difficult to see the pearl EP in the photo and the card is SO much prettier in real life.

I used the one stamp from the "Doodle This" set for the background. I thought it gave it a little flair but not too much. It was just enough to keep your focus on the cake.

If you don't mind using embossing powder it was a pretty quick card to make. Embossing powder is ok but if I have to make too many cards with it I find it less fascinating than I do making only one or two cards with it! I like the look of the pearl. I'm not sure how you could get this effect with Stampin' Up! embossing powder, they don't carry pearl. The card would still look elegant if you used silver embossing powder instead of the pearl.

Thank you for stopping by!
