A Piece Of Cake

Hello friends, Chitra here today and I am sharing a fun birthday card that you could say is ‘A Piece of Cake’.
I love making birthday cards and what other better way to surprise on birthdays than to send a handmade card with of course a little gift card in it and let them know how special this day is ☺


To create this card:
I stamped and colored the image onto Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock using distress inks; the watercolor panel measures 4.25” X 2.25”. To add some more interest to the panel I ran it through die-cutting machine using Lawn Fawn’s stitched border die on both the sides. I also stamped the sentiment using Memento black ink.
The colored panel is then layered with a DCVW magenta colored cardstock, it measures ¼” –inch. I used perfect layers mini and a craft knife to create my layer.
To create this beautiful background I took a top folding A2 card base, placed honeycomb stencil on top (secured it with some low tack tape and masked off the area where I did not wanted the ink), then with the help of Perfect airbrush I spritzed some pink and yellow ink using my sharpie markers.
(I wanted bright and bold colors for my background so I maintained fairly low distance between the cardstock and airbrush, but if you want yours to be very light and subtle you can increase the distance. Just try it on a scrap piece of paper first and once you are happy go ahead and do the magic on your cardstock).
The colored panel is then adhered using foam squares to the card base and I also added some glitter to the cherry.
