CCMC363 Amazing Birthday

Oh, the sketch this week I thought was a little tricky…but then I saw what the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge Team did and I was banging myself on the head thinking…why didn’t I think of that?

So, here is what I ended up doing…I do think it makes a fun birthday card!


CCMC363 Amazing Birthday
Here are the details:

  • The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Watermelon Wonder, folded in half.  I also rounded the bottom right corner.
  • The next layer is cut 4 x 5-1/4 Whisper White with the corner rounded, too.
  • On that layer I added a 2 x 5-1/4 strip of Cherry on Top Designer Paper, then wrapped Bermuda Bay Thick Twine around three times to hide the seam.
  • I colored the Happy Birthday image in Amazing  stamp set with Crushed Curry, Bermuda Bay, Cucumber Crush and Watermelon Wonder Stampin’ Write Markers and stamped on the right bottom side.
  • I also stamped the birthday candle circles in Amazing Birthday stamp set with each of those Inks on scrap Whisper White, punched them with the 1-1/4 circle and added them over the DSP with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • For a little bling, I used the new Brights Sequins.

Lots of birthday fun!  Make sure to check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did this week over on Create with Connie and Mary!

This is definitely a happy happy birthday card! The colors are completely fun….and you can never go wrong with polka dots in my opinion!

Haha. I do that just about every week – “why didn’t I think of that?” I think your card is awesome. It is bright, fun and easy to recreate.

I love how you have carried the circle elements through from the designer paper! The varied colors on the birthday cake element are fun, and I especially love how you inked the greeting with each of the colors.
