This Card is a Piece of Cake

Today I have a card using the Piece of Cake stamp set and the Cake Builder Punch.

Piece of Cake Birthday Card by Jo Anne Hewins

Start with a card base of Blackberry Bliss that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The next layer is Highland Heather and is 3 7/8 x 5 1/8. 

The Purple Posy layer is 3 3/4 x 5.  You will be stamping your own background for this card.  I suggest you start with the larger elements and move down in size as you stamp.  Stamp the cake plate and cake in Highland Heather ink.  Now add the words in Blackberry Bliss.  I used 2 sentiments from the stamp set for this.  It was very hard to find places to stamp this.  Just remember that whatever is under the white label will not be seen.  Last, add the hearts in any spaces that need something.  Color in the cake icing and the hearts with the Dark Purple Posey Blend.

The Whisper White label is cut using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  This one is extended to a longer length.  You do that by the placement of your plates on the die cut machine.  I do have a video where I used this technique.  See it here.  Punch the cake plate with the Cake Builder Punch out of Blackberry Bliss cardstock.  Stamp the cake on Purple Posey cardstock in Blackberry Bliss and Punch it out.  Figure out where the candles need to be and stamp them directly on the tag.  Add the cake with dimensionals.

Use Nature's Twine, Blackberry Bliss for the ribbon.  I like to pull the strands apart to help the twine lay better on the card.  Add around the tag and tie in a bow.  Add the tag with snail.

Add some of the Basic Adhesive Backed Sequins to the card.
