Pretty Princess Birthday Card


Remember the Pretty Princess card I made a couple of weekends ago -- the one I couldn't show you because I was afraid the recipient might see it here before her birthday? Well, her birthday is today and by now she must have received the original, so I can share a photo of the card with you.
The card is 5.5x8.5. I used the stamp-a-ma-jig and stamped a cake several times to create this multi-layered cake. I used the candles from Blooming with Happiness and the stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp 13 candles on top of the cake (the recipient is turning 13). I colored the cake with pixie pink and pink passion and used a 2 way-glue pen to add glitter to all of the "frosting" on the cake and the candle flames. I used the wrought iron corner punch to frame out the cake image and the sentiment. I really like the way this turned out and I hope the new teenager will too!

WOW! That's some cake and some card! Great idea to stack the stamp using the stamp-a-ma-jig.

Opens up a whole lot of possibilities!!

This is such a sweet card. Kind of reminds me of the princess and the pea with all those mattresses! LOL!
