Celebrate With Cake

Last week a lot of happy mail arrived at my door and I was contemplating which I should play with first and finally decided that the first arriving at my door would be the products I would use. So I made a birthday card using my supplies I purchased from Stampin' Up! And, this is the first time I ever made a card like this and I am so happy it turned out okay. First I will show you the outside of it.

I used images from a couple different stamp sets. The sentiment, candle and the cake are from the Party With Cake set and the balloons are from the Honeycomb Happiness set. I used Gina K. Designs Black ink for the sentiment and for the balloons and colored them with my Spectrum Noir Aqua pens The cake was stamped with Gina K. Designs Dusty Rose ink and  after I stamped the candle on the cake I colored it with the Aqua pens. I also added some Washi tape and enamel dots which are from Stampin' Up!

Now I will show you the inside and this is the portion of the card that I was so tickled pink to have work out okay and look amazing. I wasn't sure how to do the inside but I cut my card stock to the size I needed and then creased it in the middle so that I had a way to align the die. I used a tiny bit of washi tape to hold the die in place too before I ran it through my machine. Once it was cut out I did a valley fold on the die cut design and then I added the washi tape. It was now ready to add to the inside of the base card.

That is a die I also got from Stampin' Up and I was so happy that it worked so easily for a popup card design. I also added some Washi tape inside.

I think this is a card design that will work for any age or gender just by using a different color of card stock. This is a more feminine card as I used pink but blue or any other color could be used too.

I am entering this in the Seize The Birthday Blog challenge.

Our Badge

Well, time to settle down and watch the Super Bowl with my hubby. I loved how Lady Gaga sang the national anthem. But I like her singing anyway and love how she and Tony Bennet do duets together.

Well, thanks for stopping in and for all the comments you leave.

God bless,

This is such a fun and festive card for, as you say, anyone's birthday!! I'm sad that I missed Lady Gaga singing, but I will find it online. I've always liked her, too, from the very beginning and I could see how sweet she was under all that silly getup she used to wear. She really found her niche with dear Tony. Enjoy your day!!
