Papertrey Ink’s Cake Please

Hi Crafty Friends,

Papertrey Ink – Ink To Paper have a brand new stamp and die out called Cake Please. It features a charming birthday cake and lots of accessories for decorating and arranging. We have a new video for you to introduce you to the set and demonstrate the coming together of a new card design.


Here is the video to guide you through all the steps.

Below we have a few close-ups to give you an up-close and personal look at the elements that make up this card. Plus, we also have a complete supply list of everything we used.

The multi-layer background was created by first making a white card stock card base. Then die-cutting a Pale Peony cardstock panel using the Tin Stitch cover plate. A foam backing was added to the Pale Peony one, then adhered to the card base. The next layer was a white diamond-patterned panel created by using the Diamond dies by Papertrey Ink – Ink To Paper. This diamond panel was also stamped with the Nifty Plaid stamp, the sparkly stamp in the set, and Soft Stone ink.

The cake, pedestal, flowers, and greenery were all stamped with Papertrey Ink ink colors. You can see all the colors we used in the ‘Goodie Used’ list below. Check out the video for a nifty way to stamp all those little parts.

After all the pieces were cut out and stamped, the cake was assembled using foam tape and a little glue here and there. There are a bunch of sentiments included that are awesome, but we decided to be different and go for a ‘Sweet 16’ sentiment. To do this, we stamped the ‘Sweet’ from the Playful Patterns stamp set and the ’16’ from the Established stamp set. They were stamped onto vellum using Versamark ink and then heat embossed with a silver embossing powder.

A few embellishments, like adding Glitz gel to the in-between layers of the cake and a smattering of sequins were added to give a subtle, but special touch to the card.
