Winter White Trigger

I was inspired to create this card after seeing the Trigger Tuesday Challenge over at Moxie Fab World. Yes,the thing to inspire us was a white on white wedding cake but I just couldn't resist making this. Ever since I saw some samples with a new layer cake stamp set from Paper Trey Ink I've wanted to try to create the same look by just cutting my own layers and mounting on a cake stand image I already have. I cut each layer a quarter inch smaller than the one before.

The most fun was using my glue pen to design each layer of the cake! It kinda made me feel like a pastry chef. I trimmed each layer with ribbon and a tiny hand cut flower. I think it looks pretty cool for a single layer card!

The gift I'm most excited about from Christmas is a photography class. After trying to take this photo it's obvious I need it :)

Thanks for looking and Happy New Year!

Flower, Sentiment, and Stand are all Stampin' Up! images. I used a dark gray ink by Stampin' Up! for all the rubber and dazzling diamonds glitter.
