Card Videos

Use those backgrounds! WATERCOLOR BACKGROUND BIRTHDAY CAKE!

Happy Thursday, all! Do you have a stash of finished backgrounds just waiting to be made into cards? The colorful watercolor background I made a couple of weeks ago was begging to be made into a card! LOL! In today’s video, I cut it up and turned it into a birthday cake!

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

To spruce up the layers of the cake and make them more whimsical, I painted simple patterns using white gouache. I then diecut a cake topper for the top of the cake using the Top It Off dies from Concord & 9th. I used gold foil cardstock from Altenew, and also cut strips of the gold cardstock to accent the cake layers.

To add interest behind the cake topper, I blended some gold Delicata ink through the Big Bursts stencil from Joggles.

The greeting at the bottom of the card is from Concord & 9th’s Top it Off stamp set. I stamped it in Versafine Onyx Black ink.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card and video! Thanks for stopping by!
