General Cards

Cake is the Answer

In my last post I promised that I would start sharing the cards that I made while I was at The Stamping in the Mountains Retreat.  So if “Cake is the Answer” like the title of my post today says……


I just love this!  Well, I love cake too – chocolate cupcakes with white icing is my favorite.  Now that you’ve seen a close up of the inside of the card….you’d probably like to see the outside too!


This is the stamp set that I used – Piece of Cake which is in the 2019 Occasions catalog.


And I used the How Sweet It is Designer Series Paper because I love the bright colors and fun designs.


You can make cake cards for every occasion – birthdays, weddings, celebrations, cakes for kids and cakes for adults….it’s just a good all around set.  And once you stamp and color your cakes, this Cake Builder Punch will punch it out for you in a flash.  This is also in the 2019 Occasions catalog.  This punch is currently on back-order, but it should be available again in the beginning of April….and then you can purchase the stamp set and the punch as a bundle and save 10%!


I could have stamped the candles right onto the oval, but I opted to just stamp them on a scrap piece of cardstock and do a little fussy cutting before I put them on the top of the cake.


If you’d like to make this card, these are the supplies you’ll need:

  • Piece of Cake Stamp Set
  • Whisper White Thick Cardstock – Cut 5 ½” x 8 ½”; Scored at 4 ¼”
  • Gorgeous Grape Cardstock – Cut 5 ¼” x 4”
  • How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper – Cut 5” x 3 ¾”
  • Outside Banner: Whisper White Cardstock-  Cut ½” x 3”
  •                           Gorgeous Grape Cardstock – Cut ⅝” x 3 ⅛”
  • Inside Banner: Whisper White Cardstock – Cut ½” x 3 ⅞”
  •            Gorgeous Grape Cardstock – Cut ⅝” x 4”
  • Whisper White Cardstock – Cut 5 ¼” x 4” (for inside)
  • Ovals – Scraps of Whisper White & Gorgeous Grape
  • Ink: Gorgeous Grape and Tuxedo Black Memento
  • Stampin’ Blends: Highland Heather, Lovely Lipstick, Pool Party Dark, Bermuda Bay Light, Daffodil Delight
  • Cake Builder Punch
  • Layering Ovals Framelit Dies
  • Snail Adhesive

There is no decorating on the inside this time, but sometimes I like to add a layer of Whisper White Cardstock on the inside, just to give it a little extra finishing touch.
