For my card design today, I have chosen to use the Sale-a-bration stamp set, Happy Birthday To You (item #152308), which you can earn Free with a qualifying $50 order, and the coordinating Birthday Days from the Coordination Product Release. I love that these dies mean no more fussy cutting and provide so many options for creating with this stamp set.
To create my card, I chose to use Thick Whisper White cardstock for my card base and I added a layer of Purple Posy cardstock that I embossed using the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder (item #151785) to create a soft background.
The focal image was created by stamping the detailed cake image twice onto Whisper White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored the images using a combination of Purple Posy, Soft Sea Foam and So Saffron Stampin' Blends Markers. Using the dies from the Birthday Dies (item #153590), I die cut one of the images with the die that cut out the whole cake image and the other I die cut just the flowers image using the coordinating die.
In addition, I die cut one of the cake pedestals and two of the fern dies from Silver Foil to complete the design. I snipped off the stamped cake pedestal using paper snips and attached the Silver Foil one to the bottom of the stamped cake image using Snail Adhesive. I attached the flowers image to the cake image using Stampin' Dimensionals, making sure they were lined up. I then attached the cake image to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals, placing it towards the top to leave room for the sentiment.
For the sentiment, I heat embossed the image using Silver Embossing Powder and die cut it using one of the Ornate Frames Dies (item #150664) and attached it to the bottom of the card front with Snail Adhesive. To complete the card design, I added Basic Rhinestones for a touch of bling and a small bow created using the Whisper White 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon (item # 151326). I attached the bow to the cake pedestal using a Mini Glue Dot.
This soft and pretty card design is perfect for a variety of occasions including birthdays, weddings, anniversaries and so much more.
