For this fun challenge, the Cake Fancy stamp set fits the theme perfectly! This stamp set is a lot of fun and can be used for any occasion. This birthday cake happens to be chocolate, but would also be great in a vanilla or red velvet. All three sound delicious to me!!

You can find this stamp set on page 30 of the Jan-Apr 2024 Mini Catalog.

To make the card

  • Begin with a 5 1/2” x 8 1/2” piece of Lost Lagoon cardstock, score and fold at 4 1/4” to form your card base.
  • Adhere a 4” x 5 1/4” piece of Crumb Cake cardstock to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (MLG).
  • Sandwich a 3 7/8” x 5 1/8” piece of Basic White cardstock in the Softly Sophisticated embossing folder and run through your cut & emboss machine. Adhere the piece to the card.

  • Stamp you cake plate on a piece of Basic White cardstock using Gray Granite ink. Then, stamp over the image again with Versamark ink. Quickly dust it with Clear embossing power, tap off the excess, and set in place with your Heat Tool.

Time for the cake

  • Stamp two layers of cake on top of the plate using Crumb Cake ink. (Hint- be sure to leave a space between the two layers.)

  • Stamp your top part of the cake and the side icing using Early Espresso ink, stamped off. (Stamp off means to ink up your stamp, stamp on a scrap piece of paper, then without reinking, stamp your image.) (hint- be sure to leave another space between the top layer) Color over the Early Espresso inked images with your dark Pecan Pie Stampin’ Blend. Then, stamp over the images again with Versamark ink. Quickly dust them with Clear embossing powder, tap off the excess, and set in place with your Heat Tool.
  • On another piece of Basic White cardstock, stamp the following; two large flowers in Lost Lagoon, one medium flower in Berry Burst (stamped off), two small flowers in Bubble Bath, and four leaves in Soft Sea Foam. Stamp the center of the flowers with Lemon Lolly ink.
  • Fussy cut the cake and the flowers. (Fussy cut means to cut with your Paper Snips.)

  • Stamp your sentiment on a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock using Lost Lagoon ink. Punch the sentiment out with the Double Oval Punch. (Hint- make sure that the sentiment is in the bottom-right portion of the oval.) Then, adhere the small pink flower and last leaf to the sentiment and attach to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Attach three Rainbow Pastel Dots as shown.

Overall, it’s pretty easy right? It’s just pretty lengthy to describe. Adding the Clear embossing powder to the icing and cake plate, really makes it stand out.

  2. I really like the muted colors you selected. This would be a great card to send to my 20-something guys, ie grandsons, attending university. I also appreciated how you pointed out I can change the cake to red velvet, one of my grandson’s favorite cake. Thank you for this great inspiration.

    • Thank you Sandy! The red velvet cake would be a great choice. If you are planning on sending it to your guys, I would probably opt to put the dollops of frosting on the cake rather than the flowers, unless of course they like flowers.😀
