60th Birthday Cake and Souveneirs
My friend ordered these souveneirs for a 60th Birthday Party and specified she wanted something with the cake boxes. Here's what I came out with. I used Baja Breeze CS for the cake, Very Vanilla CS for the flower, and Chocolate Chip Brown satin ribbon for the sides of the cake box. It looked like Satin Frosting in a layered cake :) Yum! Noticed that I stamped the "Elements of Style" stamp on top of the cake with Soft Suede Ink and didn't put leaves on the flowers. Looks gorgeous!
I made Ghirardelli Boxes to match, too! When I was deciding to put a 60th Birthday tag on it, I changed my mind and found my Butterfly Punch #119848. I wanted to make a chocolate looking embellishment so I simply punch one and added a pearl embellishment #119247. They even looked like bows to me! Doesn't it?
I also used the "Elements of Style" Stamp #120045, for a background image on the box. For the belly band, I used "Crumb Cake" CS. The box came out simple and elegant!
