Let me show you how to make a super, fantastic Birthday card using the Cake Crazy stamp set. One of the best things about this stamp set is that it’s a 2 step stamp set. Let me explain what I mean. Take a look at the bottom layer of the cake. Do you see how it’s got a two toned argyle (diamond) pattern with “squiggly frosting” on top as well as Watermelon Wonder colored “dots” between all of those little diamonds. Oh, not to mention the “cake plate and the “balls” on top of the squiggles. Hang on, don’t panic, it’s much easier than it looks. I stamped the first diamond image in Pool Party ink, then the second diamond image with the “squiggles” in Bermuda Bay ink. The images in this stamp set line up perfectly. The “dotd and the balls” and the plate are all one image which was stamped in Watermelon onder ink. Each cake layer has multiple parts that you can choose to use or not depending on how fancy you want your cake to be.
