Welcome to the CardMaker and The Greeting Farm blog hop and giveaway! The Greeting Farm is giving away a great prize for one of you hoppers so keep reading.
I chose to create my cards using the birthday cake stamps from The Greeting Farm. There are lots of possibilities for this collection. There are several size and design cake layers to mix and match.
On a separate sheet of white cardstock, I stamped my chosen layers, cake stand and candles. I fussy-cut the whole cake and adhered it with foam tape.
Then, I stamped and trimmed the sentiment tag.
I used a chalk ink pad for the cake and trim, silver pigment for the stand and candles.
For my second card, I heat-embossed the bow to use as a vase. I added a tiny punched link to the vase to give some dimension. Then, I heat-embossed the flowers. Like the bow-vase, the flowers were meant to be used as decorations on a cake. With a small paint brush, I picked up pigment from an ink pad and drew in the stems. Finally, I heat-embossed the sentiment and adhered the white panel to the blue card base.
