Weekender with Wanda – Birthday Cake Wishes!
Hello friends! Happy Saturday! Welcome back to the latest edition of Weekender with Wanda here on the Simon Says Stamp blog! Always nice to see you here on the weekend! Hope you had a great week. I have been crafting up a storm in my studio, which is a good thing, because it’s been over 100 degrees every day for a week where I live. Yuck! So Buddy, my trusty studio side kick, sleeps all day and I make cards. It’s a good life. Ha!
Today I’m sharing a happy birthday card made with products from one of the awesome companies we carry – Reverse Confetti! They have a new-ish line of cake building stamps (Candles n Confetti) and matching dies that I loved from the moment I laid eyes on them. They are so versatile and pretty, and you can make about 100 different combinations of cakes using all the pretty add ons. I always need more birthday cards, don’t you?
For this card I started with a Fog Cardstock card base. I layered pretty red cardstock with it. This is such a clean and classic color combination. I created my own background paper by stamping the word “happy” from the Whole Lotta Happy stamp set multiple times in red ink. This is a really fun way to tie a project together. I stamped the Birthday Wishes sentiment onto a banner using Intense Black Ink from Simon Says Stamp. You can also see that I wrapped a strip of vellum around the top two layers to tone down the color and make a frame for the center piece.
I stamped and die cut out the cake stand, the cake, and three of the little flower clusters. Then I stamped the red polka dots onto the cake. The cake stand was very lightly colored with a Copic Marker to match the grey cardstock base.
The fun part is assembling the card! I added tiny bits of Stickles to the candle flames and tiny pearls to the centers of the flowers. This would also make a great wedding card, just by not stamping the candles, and changing the sentiment. You could even match it to the wedding colors. Wedding cards are hard for me…
I layered a Stitched Circle die in crisp white onto a red scallop to create the center of my card. The cake, etc was attached using foam squares.
Here’s wishing a HAPPY day to all of you! Thank you for visiting and hope the rest of your weekend is delightful! FYI – Next Saturday we’ll be having a big blog hop with some exciting new products for you! So, Weekender with Wanda will be back on the 23rd!
