Hi everyone! Hope you had a great weekend! This month’s Anything Goes With Dies Challenge is live over at Happy Little Stampers and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project with you today!
I created an adorable birthday card with a layered die cut cake with lots of dimension! So fun! The image in the Spellbinders stamp and die set that I used is nice and large. I stamped it in black ink and colored it with my dying and almost dry distress markers. I got the last little bit of color from several of them and then threw the whole container in the trash. Not sure what their life span is… I believe I bought the set of 50 back in 2012 so I’ve gotten six years’ use out of them. I hope that’s a good average, lol!
I added shimmer to all the colored areas with a Clear Star Gelly Roll pen. I then cut two background cake pieces and adhered them together, then cut all of the individual elements of the cake from textured cardstock and layered them together. I cut the candle from white cardstock and colored the flame with Spectrum Noir markers and Clear Star Gelly Roll pen. I layered the panel on aqua cardstock and adhered it to the card panel, then affixed the cake which has lots of dimension. :)
For the inside, I stamped a fun ‘party’ sentiment and layered the panel on aqua cardstock.
And here’s one more look… sure do love how this turned out! I’m sure I’ll be using this stamp and die set more in the future! Totally adorable!
