Yay for cake! – One Plus One Catherine Pooler Release

Although the One Plus One collection has a more baby and wedding story to it, you can still use the collection to create other cards. This stamp from the ‘This calls for cake’ stamp and die set is a fantastic large cake that makes elegant birthday cake cards! Adding a bold heat embossed sentiment can help add a modern twist, perfect for any recipient. So let’s get started!

PRODUCED AS PART OF MY BRAND AMBASSADOR WORK FOR CATHERINE POOLER DESIGNS - SEE END OF POST FOR MORE DETAILS

Yay for cake!

Creating the birthday cake

First of all, stamp the cake from the ‘This calls for cake’ stamp set from Catherine Pooler Designs onto in embossing ink onto white cardstock. Next, cover this with WOW! Metallic Platinum embossing powder and heat set. 

Using an acrylic block, smoosh Sangria Catherine Pooler ink down onto the block and spritz with water. Next, use a paintbrush to colour the flowers in with the ink. Repeat this, but this time use Royal Treatment Catherine Pooler ink. If you’re want to see more on how to paint with dye inks, check out this video HERE. Once you have finished the colouring, use the coordinating die to die-cut the cake out. 

Creating the background

Fold a piece of Innocent Pink Gina K cardstock in half to create an A2 side folding card base. Using a blending tool, ink blend Pink Champagne up the card to about a third from the top using a circular motion. Repeat this using Rose Petals ink but not going quite as far. Lastly, repeat ink blending again, but this time use Sangria ink to intensify the bottom. 

For added interest, die-cut the Polka Dot Cover Plate die from Soft Stone Gina K cardstock and trim to about halfway and then foam mount onto the front of the card base. Using foam adhesive pads, add the cake to the front offset to one side. 

Heat emboss the ‘Yay for cake’ sentiment from the ‘Tie the knot’ stamp set onto black card in white embossing powder. Trim this down and foam mount onto the front of the card. Lastly, adhere a selection of sequins from the Flamenco Bay sequin mix to embellish the card. 

Yay for cake!
