Hello there! Today I have a fun birthday card that moves to share with you:) I used the set Amazing Birthday~one of my new favorites. I started with a Crumb Cake base and ran it through the Big Shot using the Circle Card Thinlit Die. I used my Bone Folder on the score lines to get crisp folds. I then stamped the border along the top in Crumb Cake ink as well. I used the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch in Daffodil Delight and topped that with a circle cut from the Sweet Taffy DSP using the 1 3/4" Circle Punch. I stamped the cake image in Rich Razzleberry and punched it out with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch. I attached it with Dimensionals and added a pair of Brights Buttons. I stamped the pennant image in Pumpkin Pie, cut it out with Paper Snips and tucked it under the scallop.

I then stamped the sentiment image in Melon Mambo onto Whisper White Cardstock. I stamped the top image again in Old Olive, cut it out and adhered it over the Mambo.

I repeated the process with Daffodil Delight and Tempting Turquoise. I found it helped to leave a tiny bit of a white border around the colorblocks to cover the Mambo ink.

Obviously I didn't figure that out at the top.

I added a couple more pennants from the DSP and attached them at the top. I added one of the fun little Basics Hodgepodge Clips on top.

Here's the message that's on the flip side. It may have worked better to use a piece of DSP for the pennant so there would be a design on the back side~I'll know for next time:)

I hope you enjoyed this fun birthday card which would work perfect for anyone. Thanks so much for stopping by:)
