A very long name for a card! I am entering it in four challenges: Mod Squad Challenge - Pretty Pieces; Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - In the family; Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Make it Sparkle and Hiding in my Craft Room - Keep it Simple Sweetie.
I started by stamping the cake image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. It is from a set called Bake a Cake by Jennifer Ellory. The two layers are paper pieced with some patterned paper from Provo Craft Celebrations paper pad. I stamped the candles with Stampabilities Cotton Candy ink and stamped the sentiment with Tuxedo Black. I cut and embossed the sentiment with a Spellbinders Shapeabilities die from the Labels and Tags set. While the paper was still in the die I sponged on some Cotton Candy ink, took it out of the die and gently sponged some more on the edges.
For the background I used a piece of a Wilton Fondant Imprint Mat, which is usually used for cakes you eat! I cut a piece off of the big sheet and inked it up with the Cotton Candy ink and laid a piece of pink cardstock on top and pressed down lightly. It gave a nice tone on tone effect.
I coloured in the striped part on the cake with a Spectrum Noir BP2 marker and used the same marker to colour a piece of ribbon. Then I added some glue to the ribbon and sprinkled on some Glitter Ritz Warm Highlights glitter. I attached the sentiment with a couple of sparkly brads over the ribbon.
I layered the background with some black cardstock and popped up the cake with some foam tape. For some extra sparkle on the candle flames I added a bit of Diamond Stickles.
For the In the Family challenge my family is the Pink family! I am not sure if it is simple enough for the Keep it Simple challenge but it isn't too fancy either!
