Wednesday’s Card: Lots ‘o Cake

Lots o Cake

Hi All!

Hope you’re having a great week! I decided to break out my Stampin’ Up! level 1 hostess set for this card, called Birthday Bakery – it’s so cute! I used black embossing powder for the image, which is perfect for when you are coloring in an image – the outline is raised up and doesn’t blend in with the colors you are using.

I used a mix of Stampin’ Up! markers and gelWriter pens that I bought at Costco several years ago. They are sparkly, so it looked really great with the black. And the trim was really easy to adhere with some glue. The card was actually quite simple to make, well, I mean if I did it again it would be easy! I made so many mistakes in the video!! I kept some of them in there – at one point I got a green smudge on the white paper. I seriously was going to start all over (ugh!), but then I found a solution that worked – definitely a handy tip, so watch the video!

The card is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches. The white piece started at 2 3/4 x 3 7/8 inches before I punched it. The patterned paper is 3/4 inch wide.
