I had a blast making this birthday card and I just I just love how fun and colorful it is.
A panel was cut from the Birthday Pop Prints (PP-0052) and adhered to a piece of Watermelon Fusion (CS-0039) card stock before being adhered to a Beach Breeze (CS-0088) card base. [the Birthday Pop Prints are part of the Retirement sale so don’t delay in ordering, it is available while supplies last or until June 30, 2018. Lots of items are selling out fast!!] Black Licorice (IP-0143) and Beach Ball (IP-0145) silk was added.
The cake images come from Let’s Eat Cake (SS-0555) was stamped in Black Licorice ink (IP-0041) onto Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock and cut out using the Amaze Machine (TO-0134) [see below on how you can get the Amaze Machine for Free*] and the Journey Circles (DI-0039) dies. Colored it in using the Journey Color Burst Pencils (JM-0077). This was popped up onto the card front using Foam Squares (AD-0085). On a piece of Pool Play cardstock (CS-0092), I stamped the saying in Black Licorice ink (IP-0041) that comes from the Bowled Over (SS-0580) stamp set and cut out using the Journey Circles dies. This was popped up onto the card front using Foam Squares (AD-0085).
On the inside panel, Happy Birthday was stamped in Beach Ball ink (IP-0047). And the Black Licorice and Beach Ball silks were added.
To finish off the card, Journey Twine Licorice Twist (AC-0267) and Pink World Sequins (AC-0112) were added. Journey Glaze (AD-0003) was added to the cake and then Star-fetti (AC-0220) was added on top of that. [Star-fetti is on the Retirement List as well].
Here are the measurements:
Beach Ball = 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4
Watermelon Fusion = 3 x 5 1/2
Birthday Pop Prints = 2 3/4 x 5 1/2
Whip Cream = 4 x 5 1/4 for the inside panel and then I used some scraps that I had on hand, big enough for the cake
Pool Play = I used some scraps that I had on hand, big enough for the saying
I really hope you give this card a try. I think you will have a lot of fun making it.
May all your handmade creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.
