Blue Birthday Cake Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)

Hi everyone! :o)

On Friday, October 21st, was my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this Blue Birthday Cake Card.

For this card I used adorable Jane's Doodles 'CAKE!' stamp set. :o)

My first intention was to make CAS, one layer card with a sentiment only. I heat embossed a sentiment on a card base and started blending Distress Ink around the sentiment. I messed it up and didn't like it at all, but I didn't want to throw it away. I cut card base on two parts, to get two panels, and heat embossed a cake from the set on the panel I started to work on. I masked the cake image and removed a plate, because it looks more masculine without the plate to me.

blended whole panel with Distress Inksplattered the panel with water and repeated the process until I was satisfied with the color. I splattered the panel with same Distress Ink mixed with water using paint brushes and colored some parts of the cake to make them darker.

When I was satisfied with the panel, I distressed edges using scissors. I did same on the white panel.

Lastly I glued two panels on a white top folded card base, drew stitches and added some highlights to the image and my card was finished. :o)

Card base dimensions: 95 mm x 127 mm (3 3/4" x 5")
