Rainbow Birthday Cake from the Colorado Craft Company


Hi Friends! These rainbow cakes have been popular on pinterest for probably a decade now, and I thought it would be fun to make one ... on a card!


The stamp set is from the Big & Bold line of the Colorado Craft Company, and is called appropriately enough Birthday Cake. I love the sentiment that comes with this set ... "Let's celebrate something today ... so we can have cake" YES! Fabulous plan! I love to eat cake!!

True story: I picked my youngest son up from a birthday party today. The birthday boy's mom offered all the other parents there some birthday cake. Every single parent said no thanks. Guess who happily took the piece of cake?! Yumm : )


Each layer of cake is watercolored, and then dotted with the same color, only with less water so that the color is a little more intense. I also made several dots with a white gel pen.


After masking off the cake, I brushed the background with ink. I thought it still looked a little plain, so I went searching for a smaller stamp to fill the space. As soon as I saw the sketchy wheel stamp from Essentials by Ellen Wonky Backdrops I knew that was the perfect choice. It's fun, it's modern, it's got a lot of energy, and it actually looks like an aerial view of sliced cake!

I've really been loving these larger scale stamps that have come on the market recently. This birthday cake has seen a lot of use already, with all the teenage birthday cards I make. So happy to have it!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
