We were at a wedding on the weekend, so I thought it was an excellent excuse to try out my brand new Sizzix Pop-Up Cake Die. Keep in mind that this was my first attempt with it, but it is much easier to use than I anticipated. While I don't love this card (the bride loves purple and I do not), I do love the die and have already seen some amazing things created with it and posted online.
I also had a chance to use my Manhattan Flower Textured Impressions Die for the first time. I embossed vellum and added glitter to the raised edges of the flowers. This die coordinates with the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set (seen inside) and makes it effortless to create WOW cards!
The Pop Up Cake die is currently available through Stampin' UP! and sells for $47.95 (CAD). Contact me to try it out for yourself and to place your own order, or order it online through my business website. The die comes with easy to follow instructions for assembly, which can also be found here.
