Hello Honey Bee friends! Today I have a beautiful piece of cake with strawberries on top on the desert menu! I’ve used the super fun Birthday Cake A2 Card Base Honey Cuts to create my slice of yum and the Freshly Picked Stencil for the strawberries!! I’ve even added “icing” with texture paste! Read on for the fun details!
The first thing I did was die cut the Birthday Cake A2 Card Base from 110# Neenah. Then I used my scissors to cut the top off along the scored line. Now for the fun part. You will need a craft mat, some texture paste, a few drops of Picked Raspberry Distress re-inker, one drop of Candied Apple re-inker. Put a good sized dollop of texture paste onto your mat. Then add the Distress re-inker drops. Then I used a palette knife to mix in the colors and spread it onto my die cut cake. I set the piece aside to dry and cleaned up my tools. Here’s a photo of it after it was dry.
I die cut another Birthday Cake from 110# Neenah and adhered the texture paste layer to the card front with Bee Creative glue. I put a large stamp block on top of it to weight it down while the glue dried.
Next I die cut the cake layers Birthday Cake Honey Cuts from 80# Neenah. I used my Copic markers to color each layer. I used E57, E35, E33, and E31. Then I used each marker again to add dots of color to add texture to the layers. This makes such a difference in the look of the slices!
Next I made the strawberries with the Freshly Picked stencil, sponge daubers, and some Distress Inks. The strawberry is Candied Apple Distress Ink and Versafine Onyx Black (seeds) and Mowed Lawn and Rustic Wilderness for the leaves on the berries. I love that the stencil includes the little seeds on the berries! Then I used the leaf stamp from the Freshly Picked stamp set and stamped it in Rustic Wilderness Distress Ink. I used the Freshly Picked stencil to color them in with sponge daubers. I used the coordinating Honey Cuts to die cut the pieces.
I arranged them on the top of the cake slice and adhered with Bee Creative glue and foam dots. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Birthday Wishes set in Versafine Onyx black ink, sprinkled on clear embossing powder, and heat set it. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I added foam dots to the back to adhere them on my card.
Check out the inside of the card!
The sentiment is from the Birthday wishes set. I stenciled on some strawberries for a cute decorative touch!
I hope you’ve enjoyed my card today! Thank you, always, for stopping by!
