Sunday Share - Picture Perfect Birthday

Hi everyone - it's Sunday and I am back with a fun card to share with you that I received in a card swap from my friend Liane. Isn't it a great card to make and send to someone of any age??

Liane chose the Picture Perfect Stamp Set in the Occasions Catalogue, and die cut the word "celebrate" from the Celebrate You framelits in the Sale-a-Bration flyer that you can get FREE with a qualifying order - ask me how you can make that happen or shop my online store on your own using this link.

The card comes together fairly quickly - here's the basic directions and all Stampin' Up! products listed in bold are available now from my store, or in the catalogue:

Cardstock Dimensions:
Whisper White - base is 4 1/4" x 11"; layer is 4 1/4" x 3 1/4"
Berry Burst - embossed layer is 4 1/4" x 1 3/4"; die cut piece is 2" x 4"

How-to:
  • Fold Whisper White cardstock in half to form the card base. Crease with Bone Folder.
  • Punch the top of the Whisper White layer (4 1/4" x 3 1/4") with the Starburst Punch.
  • Punch the starburst again from a Post It Note and use the negative as a mask to line up your candles (not the punched circle). Fasten the mask down in the centre of the card base. You want the top of the circle about 1" from the top of the card base. 
  • Stamp the candles inside the negative starburst in Berry Burst, Tangerine Tango, Wild Wasabi, and Tempting Turquoise Classic Inks.
  • Stamp a flame for each candle in  Classic Ink. Add some Clear Wink of Stella to each flame.
  • Remove mask.
  • Emboss the 4 1/4" x 1 3/4" Berry Burst Cardstock layer with the Simple Stripes Textured Impression Embossing Folder on an angle, using your Big Shot.
  • Wrap a piece of Lemon Lime Twist 1/4" Ombre Ribbon around the embossed piece and adhere to the back of the cardstock. Adhere the embossed cardstock at the bottom of your card front.
  • Stamp "The Good Stuff" on the lower right corner of the punched piece on an angle, using your Berry Burst Stampin' Write Marker to colour only those three words.  Be sure to leave space for the die cut word!!
  • Cut out the word "Celebrate" from the Berry Burst cardstock with the Celebrate You Thinlits. Adhere to the front of the card layer above the stamped words.
  • Pop up the punched piece to the card with Dimensionals so that the candles are visible through the starburst punched circle.
  • Done!
What are you creating on this rainy day??  Reminder that I've got my Open House from 1 - 3 pm so drop by and see all our new products and make a card :-)

Happy Stamping!
