Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge #108

Hi Everyone!

This week's Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge is...
use ribbon and embossing

I made this quick little gift card using the Sweethearts cartridge to cut the sentiment, "For You."  The embossed pink background is made using Cuttlebug's Heart Block embossing folder.  The hearts are cut with a Fiskars punch.  I added some purple crinkle ribbon and purple gems.  The papers are specific colors that match with the next project I'm going to share with you.

But first, let me tell you that our sponsor for this challenge is our very own Design Team Diva, Barb from BugBites.  She is providing one of her fabulous stamp sets as the prize!

We hope you'll join us for the challenge this week at Die Cuttin' Divas. You'll have one week to enter your card, layout, or altered project.  Please remember to include which die cut you used and provide a link back to our site.  

We look forward to seeing what you create! 

Now I want to share the rest of the project matching the gift card.  My niece is a bridesmaid in a friend's upcoming wedding this spring.  The bridal shower was held this past weekend, and she was responsible for making the shower favors. Well, we made this four layer paper cake together!  I mostly did the cutting with my Cricut and she did the folding and assembling.  She's very ambitious!

Didn't it turn out great?

The cake was made using the cake box cut from p. 67 of the Tie the Knot cartridge.  The words and other images were cut from both Tie the Knot and Sweethearts cartridges.  Each layer has 9 boxes and we graduated the layers by cutting 4 different size boxes.  The top layer box was 5.25", second layer 6", third layer 6.75", and the bottom layer 7.5".  That's 36 boxes in total, which my niece filled with candies and mints.  She said it was a big hit at the shower. 

Here's a few shots of how it started out:
