Sketch a Party framed cake

I'm back today with another quick birthday card to share:

Supplies (all Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Sketch a Party, All about Everything
Paper: Mint Macaron, Crumb Cake, Whisper White card stock
Ink: Mint Macaron, Crumb Cake, So Saffron, Calypso Coral, Basic Gray
Accessories: Nesting Squares Rounded Quick Kutz dies (We R Memory Keepers), Arrows embossing folder, 1/8" Scor-Tape (Scor-Pal), rose gold Deco Foil transfer sheets (Therm-o-Web), Dimensionals

This card started with the Crumb Cake frame, which I found in one of my scrap envelopes. (I keep my card stock in hanging file folders, and each color has an envelope where I store the small pieces and strips that I use for layers, punches and accents.) I stamped the frame with confetti images from the oldie-but-goodie set Sketch a Party and then added two stripes of rose gold Deco Foil for a little shine.

For the focal image I cut a piece of white card stock that would fit behind the frame and then stamped the cake and sentiment. It was a happy accident, but I like how the lines around "celebrate" echo the lines coming out of the candle.

To add some texture to the card I embossed a Mint Macaron card base with the Arrows embossing folder. Then I attached the focal panel to the card with Dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by!
