Gladys used one of the dies from Cinematic Shadow Box to die cut her panel. I love the gorgeous background which was blended using a combination of Distress Oxide Inks including Blueprint Sketch, Dusty Concord, Worn Lipstick and Scattered Straw.
She used a bunch of cardstock scraps cut in different widths to create this eye catching rainbow hue background. I love how she kept her 2-tier cake mostly white which makes it really pops from the background.
The yellow polka dots were made using a tiny hole puncher. The sentiment was from our Bond With Nature Canada stamp set which she white heat embossed onto the icing piece.
This card is clean and simple, yet so vibrant and charming. Thank you so much for sharing this with us Stephanie!

First I created my background using the Hello Sunshine Stencils 360°TM combined with the Stencils 360°TM tool. I used Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet and Shaded Lilac for my ink blending. You’ll notice that instead of sticking to one side of my stencil, I flipped my stencil to the other side for inking as well. I really like the added depth that this little trick creates.
Then I took a large sentiment from the Words From the Heart (Chapter 1) stamp set and silver heat embossed it to my card. And finally, I added gems along the inner diameter of the circular patterns for some extra sparkle!
