Stand Mixer Shaped Card

I've been playing with my Silhouette Cameo again.  This card is for my daughter's birthday.  She's an avid baker and I thought she'd get a kick out of this.  The mixer is an SVG file from the Silhouette on-line store.  I manipulated the file to create the shaped white card base.  The mixer is stamped with the Zebra background stamp from Rubberneckers on Rose Red cardstock (Stampin' Up!).  The sentiment was computer generated and punched out with the Word Window punch from Stampin' Up!  The mixing bowl was cut using Pretty in Pink dsp (Stampin' Up! retired).  I sponged the edges of the bowl to give it some depth.  The bottom of the bowl is glued to the mixer, but the top rim is popped up on dimensionals. 

The inside sentiment was computer generated and the whisk was done using a sparkle gel pen.  I substituted the cut blade housing with an Amy Chomas adjustable pen holder.  So, instead of cutting the whisk, the Cameo draws it.  The camera didn't capture it very well, but the whisk is shiny!  How cool is that?!!!  Love it!
Thanks for stopping by today!
