Birthday cards are just the best! This totally adorable stamp set builds one great cake, don’t you think? And this card only shows about half of the stamps. I love, love, love it!
The three bottom layers were done with two stamps. Good thing they are photopolymer, or totally clear, for super easy placement. There is no way I would be this patient or exact without great stamps like that. And yes, the top stamp is a set of three candles that I stamped a little flame for each one. Normally I don’t go for all the extra work, but I loved it and it was so easy! Easy enough that I included this project in the lineup for this weekends workshop.
The embossing folder is another new product from the spring catalog. It is shown with a bunch of manly stuff, and it is manly of course, but I loved it here too. My daughter thought I should be stamping bees because it reminded her of a honeycomb. Cute idea!
The sentiment is from another great birthday stamp set called Balloon Adventures. Also from the spring catalog, but it has a great trick of its own. That will be for another blog project for sure. I stamped on a strip of cardstock and put the triple banner punch to work. Of course I had to layer it as well. What is with me and layers these days? Oh well!
I couldn’t resist. I had to stamp all along the inside with those darn candles again. And I didn’t even mind stamping all of the little flames. I am telling you, it really was fun!
Have a creative day!
