Cake in Pink

"Soft kitty, warm kitty, little ball of fur..." Little kitty with a big birthday cake!

This card features Newton's Nook, resit embossing with Perfect Pearls watercolour, dry embossing, and Perfect Pearls faux embossing. Dotty!

Putting It Together

From some of the cards I have made, this one included, you would never guess that Pink is actually one of my least favourite colours. *laugh*

I embossed the stamp with a light pink on white.

I used the Big Shot and embossed a pink metallic panel and die cut the image panel. Love those scallops.

For the bottom panel, I used a stencil to apply VersaMark.

I then brushed Perfect Pearls over the VersaMark for a faux embossing. It's not dimensional, but it is very sparkly.

I used a Distress ink pad to ink the edges of the panels.

I adhered the two dotty panels to the card base after stamping the front sentiment on the faux embossing.

I originally intended to jut leave the image as an embossed line art, but I decided to give it sparkle and painted it with Perfect Pearls. The sparkle is amazing in person.

I used foam mounting tape under the image panel to give the card some additional dimension.

Inside I stamped the scroll-y happy "happy birthday" and added a hat. I used Perfect Pearls to add a touch of colour and sparkle to the hat.
