Happy Birthday To...


Yep, today is the day I celebrate the thirty-first anniversary of my thirty-first birthday.

Yeesh, how did THAT happen? I'm officially old enough to collect Social Security, but I don't feel like I've passed my forties yet!

So this is a quick, fun card that you can either stamp, as I did, or use Washi Tape for the cake layers and make it even quicker. The clear photopolymer stamps do make it easy to align the layers, though.

I chose the colors from the Wildflower Fields DSP, which is a Sale-A-Bration freebie. Speaking of Sale-A-Bration, there are three limited time items ending on the 15th and three new items starting on the 16th! I can't wait to get my hands on that glitter tape (said the Magpie, lol)! I am finally starting to use the Washi Tape I have, so some shiny, glittery tape is going to be put to good use!

The "How To" for this card
Image panel: Whisper White 3-1/8" x 4"
Mat behind image: Hello Honey 3-3/8" x 4-1/4"
Wildflower Fields DSP 1-3/8" x 5-1/4"
Card base: Whisper White Thick 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", scored and folded at 4-1/4"

Stamp the cake plate in Blackberry bliss, the bottom cake layer in Hello Honey, the middle layer in Calypso Coral, and the top layer in Old Olive. The banner at the top is also Blackberry Bliss. Punch a flower using the Itty Bitty Punch Pack and a scrap of Calypso Coral. Adhere to cake and add a Rhinestone Jewel. Fasten the DSP to the card base, then the stamped, matted panel, using SNAIL or your adhesive of choice. Add the Blackberry Bliss Washi Tape to the corners. Stamp "Birthday Wishes" in Basic Black Archival on the bottom cake layer. DONE!
