Hello friends and TGIF! I hope you have great things planned for the weekend ahead! My family and I will be celebrating my brother's retirement from the United States Marine Corps after 2o years of military service and we could not be more proud of him. One thing that makes this milestone even more special is that my 89-year-old grandfather will be there with us. He was there when my brother graduated from boot camp twenty years ago. Not many grandfather's are blessed to live long enough to see them through retirement too.
Today I am sharing a simple card that was inspired by the What Will You Stamp challenge. Their theme is to use the Cake Soiree stamp set which I have used before here and here and really love. Because the two other cards I have designed using this stamp set focused on the beautiful cake stamp itself I was determined to make this a NO cake, Cake Soiree card!

The base of this A2 sized card is made from Crumb Cake cardstock. Using the Gina Marie Designs Stitched Scallop Rectangles, I cut a border from Whisper White cardstock. I ran this sheet through my Big Shot using a retired Polka Dot Embossing Folder. I heat embossed the three presents on Calypso Coral, Berry Burst and Marina Mist cardstock using Whisper White Stampin' Emboss powder. Next I fussy cut each present out. Using Whisper White Stampin' Emboss powder, I heat embossed the sentiment onto a scrap piece of Crumb Cake cardstock and die cut it using a circle framelit. I adhered the sentiment and presents to the center of the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.
