Let’s all wish our very own, Angela Magnuson a happy birthday! Can you believe that this stunningly beautiful, small, creative, savy business woman is celebrating her 50th birthday? What better way to celebrate the founder of Unity Stamp Co.’s special day than with FIVE birthday cards featuring the new “Layered Cake Builder” stamp set! This fun new set is sure to brighten anyone’s day, just like Ang!! So let’s party!
For these cards, I started by die cutting 5 card fronts using the stitched rectangle. Next, using my stamping tool, I centered the cake stand toward the bottom. Using the darkest color of red, I stamped the cake stand. I’ll use this same dark ink for the sentiment once I add the other layers.
Before I remove this piece, I’m going to take advantage of placement so that I can make a series of these cards. Using the same placement, I stamped the cake stand using other dark inks.
Removing the cake stand stamp, and placing the next layer right above using a lighter color. I found inks to make an ombre look, but you can definitely have fun with mixing and matching colors. Oh, and there are some really fun patterns to use too!
Once I’m done with the layers of cake, I stamp the sentiment on top using the darkest color of each ink set. I also die cut the scalloped piece and used that same dark color to ink up the edges and layer the card front using some foam tape. This allows for a perfect match!
For the last piece, I added some little embellishments to each of these cards, but this stamp set also comes with some patterned stamps that go over these layers perfectly to create fun and whimsical birthday card for anyone of any age!
Thanks so much for joining me as we celebrate Angela’s birthday! I hope this inspires you to brighten someones day with your next card or crafty adventure.
Until next time… Happy Birthday Crafting!
