Birthday Cake Card

I created this card for the My Favorite Things Color Challenge #145. This is a really nice color palette and it works well for a masculine card. I'll probably use it again on other cards and projects. The Stampendous Party Background stamp is the perfect background for a birthday card. It gives the background some interest without taking away from the awesome My Favorite Things Birthday Cake die cut.

I knew I wanted to use a tone on tone color palette for the background of the card. I selected kraft cardstock for the base of the card and used Distress Oxide Vintage Photo ink to stamp the image on the cardstock.

Next I cut a frame using a Stitch Rectangle Scallop Edge Frame die from My Favorite Things.

Then the frame was glued to background of the card. I love how the frame adds interest to the background and frames the stamped words from the party background stamp. I've been using this die a lot to frame my cards. The scallop edges are so delicate and pretty!

Time to make a cake! I die cut different color combos for the cake and played around with the cut pieces until I decided on a final combination that I liked.

Here is an up close look at the finished cake. I decided against adding flames to the candles because I didn't want to add yellow or orange to the color palette.

I wrapped brown and white Baker's twine around the top of the card and made a bow to finish the card.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed reading how this card was created. Have a crafty day!
