Sweets & Treats Birthday Card by Secrets To Stamping

Hi, Stampers!

A new Alphabet Challenge starts today with the theme “K is for Kitchen,” so I had to search through my stamp collection for something I thought could work. I’m relieved at times like this that I keep some of my favorite retired stash because I found Sweets & Treats to be a perfect choice for this one. Although I made it into a birthday card, it would also be cute as a holiday card, too. I had to do the pies because pies are big in my family! My daughter Sarah always wants a mixed berry pie for her birthday! And Adam and Farah not only had a wedding cake at their wedding but we also had a dozen pies to choose from. So, what desserts do you like for your special occasions?

Once you finish here, I hope you visit our Alphabet Design Team gallery for some great inspiration and play along!

My Secrets!

Let’s start with the card base…

  • Firstly, this A2 card started with Night of Navy cardstock, cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4.”
  • After that, I cut the navy designer paper from Countryside Inn paper pack to 3-3/4″ x 5″ and the wood panel paper from All About Autumn (NEW!) to 2″ x 3-3/4″ and glued together. Then, they were glued to white cardstock (3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ and attached to the card base.

And now, the fun part!

  • Once that was done, I stamped the images from Sweets & Treats onto white cardstock and colored them with Stampin’ Blends markers (listed below). Once I was happy with that, I fussy cut them out.
  • Then, I stamped the dessert platter, fussy cut it out and glued the desserts onto the panel (the bottom one was popped up with dimensionals).
  • After that, I stamped the sentiment from Timeless Arrangements in Misty Moonlight ink and cropped it out with the banner die from the Sending die collection.
  • Lastly, I added the Glitter Sequins to the card front for a little bling.

Then, on the inside…

  • After the card front was done, I cut a piece of white cardstock to 4″ x 5-1/4″.
  • Then, I stamped the sentiment in Misty Moonlight ink.
  • Once that was done, I stamped the cupcake and candy apples, then colored them with Stampin’ Blends.
  • Finally, I decided some Wink of Stella was applied to the food on the card front and inside to add a bit of sparkle.

I’m sharing my card with these challenges:
