Today it is a Happy Birthday to You with cake and frosting. You will have the choice of vanilla or chocolate frosting.
I did these cards a few weeks ago live on Facebook and YouTube. Many ask me for the measurement and all the supplies so here it is all in writing below.
I have the video listed below so if you miss out on the live you can watch the replay. I have many tips in the video so don’t miss out.
Before I go in detail I want to give a big shootout to Elizabeth Fischer for the inspiration. Thank You Elizabeth.

Measurement for the White cake card
- Whisper White 8½ x 5½ score at 4¼ card base, 3-7/8 x 1 cut diagonal at ½ for the table all show in the video.
- Basic Black 5¼ x 4
- In-Color 2019-2021 Designer paper 5-1/8 x 3-7/8
- Shimmery White paper 6 x 3¼
- Silver Foil 3 x 2
Both of the card I color the flowers with ink and aqua painter.
The cake with the chocolate frosting was done live on Facebook. I added about 2 drop of Soft Suede ink to the embossing paste to get the chocolate colors.
This one I used the Shimmery White embossing past. Note that in the shimmery past it is some glitter in that paste. Next time that I am frosting, I will use the plain white. Just a personal choice that I prefer frosting without the glitter.
You can choose any color of ink to change the color of the frosting, yes that simple. Start with one drop of ink, if one drop is not dark enough then add one more ink drop and so on. It is much easier to add more ink then removing the color.
Measurement for the Chocolate cake card
- Crumb cake 8½ x 5½ score at 4¼ card base, 3-7/8 x 1 cut diagonal at ½ for the table all show in the video.
- Rococo Rose 5¼ x 4
- Parisian Blossoms Designer paper 5-1/8 x 3-7/8
- Watercolor paper 6 x 3¼
- Copper Foil 3 x 2
- Whisper White 5¼ x 4 inside
How to color the Candle Embellishments
The candle embellishments come in silver and gold. Well I am sure you wish they would come in many colors, The great news is you can add color to them with Stamping Blends.
Using the brush tip color the candles in any color you wish to have. Just be careful with the tip of the blends. Do not press had but brush softly and Voila! you have color on your candles.
