Waltzingmouse August Soap ~ Day 3

It's day 3 of our Waltzingmouse SOAP hop. I hope you've been inspired the last couple of days.

I have 2 more CAS cards to share with you today. For this first one, I used the set Eat Cake. I thought it would be fun to make a more masculine cake, so I clear embossed the cake image, onto Plaid dp from the Oxford Basicgrey line, cut out each individual layer, and glued it onto a circle that I cut with a Classic Circle die by Spellbinders. I then scored some lines in the bg panel and added the simple sentiment "celebrate". Nothin' frou-frou about this card. It's all man.

Now my second card goes to the other extreme. All girl.

(Click on the photo for a better view)

I stamped the flourishes, from the set Flourishes ~ Scallops and Dots, with Sky pigment ink (a muse), and Onyx Black (Versafine), and added a strip with a sentiment from the set You're Lovely. That's it.

Two more very straight forward cards. Tomorrow's card, well let's just say, it's a bit over the top. *grin*

Here's the WMS list of the other dt that's hopping along today

That plaid cake is the coolest thing ever! I want one! So creative, Tosha! I totally forget about clear embossing over patterned paper :)

Ooo! Thanks for the idea of clear embossing on paper. You know, I've never tried that, but definately will. These are both wonderful ~ TFS! :-)

Wow these are fantastic! The scored lines in the bg panel behind the cake is so elegant. Love the plaid cake so original and manly. The second card is breathtaking.

I am blown away with that plaid cake! Never in a million years could I have thought of this one, but I love it! So clever and it really does make it look masculine. I love those scoring lines too. Great job.
