Live it Up Birthday Cake

This cake image is from Power Poppy called Layer Cake and is a digital stamp.  The great thing about digi stamps is they can be any size you want.  I wanted it to take up a good portion of the front of a top folding A2 card.

I printed it on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with a laser jet printer and then colored the image with Copic Markers (RV13, RV11, RV10, V15, V12; C6, C5, C3, C1; E59, E57, E55; E53, E51, E50).  Once the coloring was complete the image was cut with the Silhouette Cameo using the PIXScan Mat.

Darice Sticky Back Foam was traced around the cake with a pencil and fussy cut with scissors and added to the back for dimension.  A rectangle of matte silver cardstock was cut using a My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX.  I added a white mat of cardstock 1/8″ larger than the silver and adhered the two together with Be Creative Tape.  A top folding A2 cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock, but I didn’t like the way the white mat looked and so I decided to double mat the focal image with another rectangle of the matte silver cardstock and liked this much better.  All were adhered to the card front with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

As a final embellishment Star Dust Stickles were added to the dot on the cake and the card was done.
