A Piece of Cake for a Valentine Birthday — Monday Montage #132

Welcome to another Monday Montage blog hop!  We are a group of stampers who love to share what we create with you, and all you have to do to follow along is click on the links at the bottom of each post.  We have a couple of new stampers that are joining our group, so make sure you don’t miss them in the hop.

My middle child has a Valentine’s Day birthday.  When she was little all of her birthday parties had a heart theme, and life was so easy.  Then as she got to the pre-teen years, the heart theme lost its luster for her and she wanted separation from Valentine’s Day for her birthday.  Understandable.  However, for me, Valentine’s Day and her birthday will forever be linked.  This year she is turning 18 and will be graduating from high school, and she has started to embrace the connection of Valentine’s Day and her birthday again.  Yea!  So I am totally taking advantage of that with her card this year.

My daughter’s favorite kind of cake is strawberry cake (which fits the Valentine’s theme pretty well, doesn’t it?), so that is what I make every year.  When I used the new Piece of Cake stamp set, I knew I had to make the cake a strawberry cake.  I colored it with markers and added some Wink of Stella to the icing to add a touch of sparkle.

I added some Heart Epoxy Droplets and a pretty scalloped heart cut from white card stock using the Be Mine Stitched Framelits dies.  A frame cut from Gray Granite card stock was made using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits dies.

You’re ready to hop on over to Breelin Renwick’s blog.  I always love seeing what she makes!  If you prefer to work your way backwards, you can jump back to Wendy Weixler’s blog.  Either way, be sure to work your way through all of the blogs so you don’t miss a thing.

  1. I can totally relate to your daughter! Having a birthday the day before Valentine’s Day always meant a pink cake for me 🙂 I love this card Amy!

  2. Those sitiched framelits are the BOMB. I love the texture and layered frames and the cake image just completes it all. Love it.
