Birthday Wishes...

To view the image up-close, please click on the photo.

My sweet Mom-in-Law, Susan, recently came for a visit to keep me and the rugrat company while my husband was away for a 2-week business trip. She is an avid card-maker, and I thought it might be fun to do our own little card "workshop" while she was here. This is one of the cards we made. I was inspired by a cute card made by the fabulous Dawn McVey.
For this card, I actually stamped last. First, I cut a piece of white cardstock to fit and ran it through my Big Shot with an embossing folder. Then, I punched a pretty border and affixed the piece to my Melon Mambo card base. Next, I stamped this whimsical birthday cake image in white craft ink and then a second time in Pink Pirouette and cut out the cake to pop out over the image. Finally, I added a ribbon/button treatment and finished off with some gold Liquid Pearl flames and a very happy sentiment!

One needs to definitely enlarge this card to fully appreciate it. You got talent, girl!
