The Greetery

Hi friends! I hope you all are doing well and had a wonderful 4th of July! I am on The Greetery's Blog today with a birthday card to share with you all. My birthday stash of cards is getting low so I thought I would pull out one of my favorite sets to create a card... let's get started.

I love the Takes the Cake set. It has so many fun elements that work together to give you so many possibilities. I started my card by using the Takes the Cake Floral detail die to create the main section of the cake. I then used the Takes the Cake stamp and stencil combo set to add all the florals and foliage to my cake. I just love how it all comes together as you add each step, so pretty! Next, I used the Takes the Cake dies to create my backer for the cake, icing and candles. I mounted the floral cake onto the baker and added the icing across the bottom. I then ink blended the candles and added them across the top of my cake.

Next, I used the Takes the Cake Stand die to create my cake stand. I then created my sentiment banner with the Takes the Cake stamp set and Takes the Cake Banner die. I stamped my sentiment with VersaMark ink and heat set it with gold embossing powder. I then ink blend the banner with pink ink before attaching it to my cake. Lastly, I used the Ticker Tape Background stamp to create my card panel. 

Thanks for joining me today and I hope I inspired you to pull out one of your favorite sets and create a card of your own.

Enjoy your day,
