Happy Birthday to You

I participated in a card swap last month with the Fun n' Crafty Stampers to share card ideas with new supplies from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog. I chose to use the Another Great Year stamp set. I love both the large Happy Birthday stamp and the cute little cupcake stamp. The Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Pack became a fast favorite. Also, the Banner Punch is free now through March 31 with a $50 order. I made 8 of these cards to swap:


Instructions
1. Cut Whisper White card stock to 5½ x 8½ and score and fold to make a card base
2. Cut Real Red card stock to 5¼ x 4, the Costal Cabana card stock to 5 x 3¾ and another piece of Whisper White card stock to 4¾ x 3½
3. Stamp “Happy Birthday To You” with Crumb Cake ink on the smaller piece of Whisper White card stock and color in open letters with a Costal Cabana marker
4. Stamp the cupcake with Real Red ink on a scrap of Whisper White card stock and color in stripes on the bottom with the Costal Cabana marker
5. Punch cupcake with the circle punch and add it to the stamped image on dimensionals
6. Adhere the stamped piece to the Costal Cabana card stock and then to the Real Red card stock
7. Punch banners from the striped paper from the Fresh Prints pack.
8. Adhere banners to the card with dimensionals and add the Whisper White Bakers Twine
9. Adhere finished piece to the card base
