The pedestal is made sort of free hand. I punched out the top of 2" x1-3/8" Oval Extra Large Punch (#119859) and then cut a thin strip of cardstock. I did use Stampin Dimensionals (#104430) to pop up both the horizontal pieces. I love a 3-dimensional look on cards!
On the inside of the card I used the sentiment "bring on the cake" and also used markers to ink up the cake with candles on the pedestal (but I didn't ink up the "Happy Birthday" part). That's a great thing about using markers on your stamps – you get multiple colors and you can ink up only the part you want.
Also, it's my opinion there should be no naked envelopes – That's what I tell the ladies when we stamp! I inked up that same birthday cake with candles on the pedestal and stamped it on the envelope. Stamping on your envelopes gives such a nice finished look to your projects.
I have hostess club this Saturday and next Saturday. If you are in the Dallas/Mesquite/Garland area and want to learn more techniques and have fun stamping, email me at email@example.com and I'll give you directions to our club meeting.
You can order all the supplies you need for this card (and lots more) from my Online Store. Check out the link in the top right panel of my blog.
I hope something you see here inspires you to stamp. Thanks for stopping by!
