Paige’s Cake Stand Design ID #264075 cut file is SO super cute! It reminds me of my glass cake stand!
I started out by cutting the cake stand from white cardstock. 99% of the time I use white cardstock for cut files. Sometimes after I see it cut I will switch out to a pattern paper and re-cut a design, but for me, I find white so pretty and crisp! I cut the word cake while I had my silhouette software open!
I chose papers from Turn the Page and a big pink flower I had fussy cut from Oh My Heart to decorate the cake stand. I backed the stand and knob in patterned paper and then I got the bright idea to turn the dome top into a sequin shaker spot! I cut a piece of white polka dot acetate to fit the dome and glued it on to the cut file, being careful not to get glue onto the acetate. Next, I used very thin foam tape and ran it around the entire portion of the dome so that the sequins would be trapped in that space. Once the foam tape was all on, I added sequins from Turn the Page and a few from my stash, I then added a white piece of cardstock to the back area (on top of the foam tape) to seal it all in. I trimmed the excess white cardstock off and then shake shake shake!
I kept my embellishments very light, a doily, a few sprinkles of hearts and puffy flowers and a puffy butterfly from Turn the Page. I stamped the date in pink and voila!
