Birthday Card | Graciellie Design - "Rainbow Birthday Cake" Digital Stamp Set | Krafty Chicks Challenge #710 - Week #1 Stamps


I’m so excited to announce that I have been invited to join the Krafty Chicks Challenge as a guest designer for the next few months! I have been following this wonderful weekly challenge for many years and it’s an honor to become a part of this great team for a guest gig! 

We are starting Challenge #710 with Week #1 - Stamps (inked or digital) and I chose a great digi stamp set from Graciellie Designs, “Rainbow Birthday Cake”. The original cake was created as a tall slimline image but with just a few tweaks, I was able to convert it to a 3-layer design that would fit on my A2-sized card front.

After resizing, I printed the image onto 80# white card stock and watercolored both versions. Distress Oxide Ink was blended around the edge of the pink version and both card fronts were spattered with gold metallic paint. I trimmed both painted fronts down to 4” x 5.35” and glued them to coordinating card stock. Baker’s twine was wrapped around and tied to the panel, which was attached to an A2 top-folding card base. 

The sentiment on the pink version was already printed onto the cake layers but I stamped/die cut the sentiment for the primary card and popped it into place with foam tape. This is a classic image and I have made dozens of these cards for my birthday stash!

Thanks so much for joining me today and I hope you will link up your “Stamp” project over at the Krafty Chicks Challenge !

Happy Crafting!
