Sweet Birthday!

This is one of the fun cards that my guests made at the August Make and Take. I absolutely LOVE that fun candle image from Cycle Celebration! I didn't really think I would like the Birthday Basics DSP very much, but after having it in my hands I've nearly used it all up! Which really is an accomplishment for me! 

  • Stamps: Cycle Celebration
  • DSP: Birthday Basics
  • Card Stock: Coastal Cabana, Summer Starfruit, Very Vanilla
  • Ink: Coastal Cabana, Summer Starfruit
  • Accessories: Decorative Label Punch, Scallop Edge Border Punch, Chalk Talk Framelits, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Large Oval Punch, Dazzling Details, Rhinestone Basic Jewels

For this card you will want to start off by cutting a piece of Coastal Cabana card stock 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” and score it at 4-1/4”. Next stamp the candle image from Cycle Celebration across the middle of the card stock in Coastal Cabana ink several times.

Next cut a piece of Summer Starfruit card stock 2-1/2” x 4-1/4” and use the Scallop Edge Border punch on both the long edges. Now cut a piece of Birthday Basics DSP 1-5/8” x 4-1/4” and adhere it into the center of the scalloped Summer Starfruit card stock. Now adhere this panel onto the bottom of the card front.

Cut the label from another pattern of the Birthday Basics DSP with the Chalk Talk framelit in the Big Shot. Stamp the “celebrate a sweet birthday” label twice onto a scrap of Very Vanilla card stock; once in Coastal Cabana, and once in Summer Starfruit. Punch out just the center of the Summer Starfruit image with the Large Oval Punch. Punch out the Coastal Cabana image with the Decorative Label punch.

Adhere the Coastal Cabana label onto the DSP label. Now adhere the Summer Starfruit oval into the center of the Coastal Cabana label with a Stampin’ Dimensional. Adhere the stack of labels onto the card front with a couple Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Finally, just to add some sparkle, add two small Rhinestone Basic Jewels onto the ends of the DSP label then use Dazzling Details to add some glitter to the flames of the candles.

Now you have a bright and fun birthday card!
