Happy Birthday to You

I am loving the Birthday dies (Coordination Product release) that coordinate with the Happy Birthday to You stamp set (Sale-A-Bration).  They were a perfect combo to use for this week's Create with Connie & Mary challenge, #CCMC598.



Here's how I made this card.

  • Cut a Petal Pink card base 4-1/4" x 5-1/2".  Cut a Petal Pink layer 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" and emboss using the Subtle 3-D folder
  • Cut a 2-1/2" x 4-1/8" piece of Petal Pink vellum (Perennial Essence Vellum Cardstock) and die cut using the Delicate Lace die.
  • Run a line of SNAIL adhesive along the top edge of the Vellum and adhere to the Petal Pink embossed layer.
  • Tie a small Petal Pink 1/4" Metallic-Edge Ribbon bow around the Petal Pink embossed layer covering the strip of SNAIL adhesive.

  • Stamp the flowers from the Happy Birthday to You SAB stamp set on Shimmery White CS with VersaMark ink and heat emboss using  White embossing powder. 
  • Color the image using Petal Pink, Daffodil Delight , and Pear Pizzazz ink refills and an Aqua Painter. 
  • Cut out the flowers using the Birthday Dies from the Coordination Product release.
  • Cut out the largest circle (Whisper White CS) and the coordinating scalloped circle (Champagne Foil) using the Layering Circle dies.
  • Stamp the sentiment (By the Dock stamp set) in Basic Gray ink on the white CS.
  • Adhere the Whisper White  circle to the Champagne Foil scalloped circle using SNAIL adhesive.
  • Adhere the circles to the Petal Pink layer.
  • Adhere the flowers to the Whisper White circle using Stampin' Dimensionals.  TIP- I position the Dimensionals towards the center of the die cut.  This way I can tuck in and arrange the foliage easily.
  • Cut out Pear Pizzazz leaves using the Birthday dies.  There are 2 leaves on each die (yay!) and I started by cutting 2 each and added leaves until I liked how it looked.
  • Tuck in the leaves and attach them using Mini Glue Dots.
  • Adhere the embossed Petal Pink layer to the card base using SNAIL adhesive.

  • Cut a 4" x 5-1/4" Whisper White cs and attach it to the inside of the card.  Cut a 1" x 4" piece of Petal Pink vellum. Cut the vellum using the Delicate Lace die.
