Bring On The Cake Birthday Card!

This is the third card that we made at February Play Day:

This was our masculine card, and I really liked the way it turned out!  Here is the recipe for the card:

STAMPS:  Bring on the Cake
     Crumb Cake 5-1/2 x 8-1/2, scored at 4-1/4
     Basic Black 3-1/4 x 5-1/4
     Newsprint DSP 2-7/8 x 5-1/8
     Scraps:  Very Vanilla, Basic Black
INK:  Basic Black, Soft Suede
ACCESSORIES:  Sponge, Basic Black Brads, Paper Piercer, Mat Pack, Dimensionals, Decorative Label Punch, Scallop Trim Border Punch

When I created this card, I punched the Decorative Label Punch with Very Vanilla and sponged it with Soft Suede, but it just didn't really stand out the way it should.  I decided that it needed a backing so I created one.

First, we punched out one Very Vanilla Decorative Label Punch, and two Basic Black Decorative Label Punches.

Next, we cut one of the Basic Black Decorative Label punches in half longways and the other Basic Black Decorative Label punch in half on the short side, like you see in the picture.

Lining each black piece up so that approximately equal parts of black show on each side, we glued the Basic Black pieces to the back of the Very Vanilla Decorative Label punch.

Your finished label should look something like this from the front:

and something like this from the back:

We stamped the "Wish Big" hand stamp from the BRING ON THE CAKE stamp set on a scrap of Very Vanilla, sponged it with Soft Suede and attached it to the Decorative Label punch with dimensionals.

Thanks for visiting!

Happy stampin and scrappin,
