Birthday Cake Has No Calories

Avery Elle’s Bring on the Cake has a lot of cut images that can made fun birthday cards.  For this card I found a great patterned paper from Pebbles Fall & Cooking 6 x 6 Paper Pad.  I like the interesting modern chevron stripes.  I die cut a rectangle using the largest Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles.  Next I die cut a circle out of the patterned paper using a Simon Says Stamp Nested Circle die.  This allowed the slice of cake to take center stage.  I cut a rectangle of Darice Sticky Back Foam 1/8” smaller and die cut a circle out of it using a slightly larger die and adhered it to the back of the patterned paper.

I stamped the slice of cake image on Neena 80# Solar White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it with Copic Markers E49, E59, E57; Y00, Y11, E50; YR21, YR23, YR24.  The image was then die cut using the matching die.  3M ½” Foam Tape was added to the back for dimension on the card.

I combined a couple of the sentiments from the stamp set and stamped them below the circle on the patterned paper with Hero Hues India Ink Black.

A top folding A2 cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# Ivory Cardstock and the patterned paper rectangle was adhered to the front with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  The backing was removed from the foam tape and the cake image was adhered to the center of the circle.  As a finishing touch a few Pretty Pink Posh Metallic Gold Sequins were scatter around the sentiment and Clear Wink of Stella was added to the platter and the card was done.
