Hello, crafty friends!
First, I smooshed distress oxide inks in Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick, and Spun Sugar onto an A2 size cardstock and cut using the Birthday Cake die set. I also cut one more time using white cardstock, which I then used to paper piece the balloons and cake. For the balloons, I used Copic markers in BV02/00/000. For the cake, I brushed with Gathered Twigs distress oxide and ran through the die cut machine with the Lattice stencil for texture. For the icing, I used the pink distress oxide inks smooshed cardstock and I added diamond dust on top using Glossy Accents. For the cake stand and candles, I colored with Copic Marker BG10.
I then prepared my A2 card and stenciled the confettis directly onto the card using the new Layered Confetti Stencils in Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed, and Wilted Violet distress oxide inks.
I absolutely love this new Birthday Cake die from PPP. It’s so much fun to put the pieces together and it’s fast and simple to create birthday cards with it. I know you will enjoy it too!
