Hey there stampers! I am going down memory lane and perusing the 2016-17 annual catalog for little gems that I have sadly forgotten! These sets sometimes get missed when the Occasions catty drops. I will go back lots of times and think I can’t believe I haven’t used that set in so long, and I will pull it out and use the heck out of it!
I sometimes think of my stamp sets in the Toy Story fashion, as if they are just siting there saying ” Why isn’t Rach using us?” I know, I am a tad corny, but I am what I am !
Anyway, this quick and easy birthday card should be on your “must create in case of emergency birthday ” list! I know I sometimes go through that stack of cards quicker than I like to admit, and this card is a great way to add back to your stack pretty quickly.
Plus, you could change the colors around, and make it a great 50 ( or 60 or 70) and Fabulous card, by using Smoky Slate, and Archival black for that Black Tie look. Add a little glimmer paper, and you will WOW them.
See, I just gave myself a new idea as I was typing, so off to the craft room to recreate!
OK onto the directions!
Card Base: Watermelon Wonder 5 1/2″ by 81/2″, scored at 4 1/4″. Stamp the flags from the Build a Birthday set onto the base in Watermelon Wonder ink in a random pattern.
Stamp the layers of the cake, and trim just to size using the paper snips.
My colors were from bottom to top:
Cake Plate: Dapper Denim, I used a blender Pen to add some White craft ink to the edge and to add details.
Cake : Mint Macaron, Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum, Cucumber Crush
I stamped the sentiment and the top flags in Watermelon Wonder. I hand trimmed the sentiment, and I stamped the flags directly onto the base layer of card stock that I layered the “cake” onto.
The Whisper White layer measures 2 3/4″ by 4 3/4″, I also added some Silver metallic thread under the white layer for some added pop. I went over the flags and the cake plate with Wink of Stella for a little sparkle!
Until next time……
