I am so excited and honored to participate in the Paper Sweeties 7th birthday celebration. They have such cute designs!
I started with stamping the balloons from the Paper Sweeties Happy cake stamp set on Neenah Solar White cardstock and die cut it with an Arch Tag die from Pink and Main. As the original tag would be too short, i made it longer with the partial die cutting technique.
Then I stamped the same balloons on the newly released Sparkle Sheets and fussy cut each balloon from different colours. I paper pieced the bunch of balloons and adhered the pieces with liquid glue.
I added some orange ribbon from Paper Sweeties to the tag and popped it up with 3D foam squares on a white card base covered with pretty patterned paper from the Summer Splash paper pad.
For my second card I stamped and coloured the images from the Paper Sweeties Happy Cake Day stamp set and used their coordinating dies to cut them out.
I cut the biggest Stitched rectangle die from white cardstock and also from patterned paper from the Summer Splash paper pad. I cut a small piece of the white one and silver heat embossed my main sentiment on it from the Special Day stamp set. I also stamped a smaller sentiment above it using aqua ink.
I assembled the card, added a thin strip of Silver Sparkle Sheet below the cake stand and used 3D foam squares to pop up the cake.
I decorated it with 7 candles (as Paper Sweeties are turning 7) and added finishing touches: covered the balloons with a clear shimmer pen for a subtle sparkle, used glossy accents on the frosting and decorations of the cake and also on the flames of the candles. And last but not least I added some pretty flower sequins from Paper Sweeties to the bottom and embellished their middles with tiny white pearls.
