Happy Monday! Happy back to normal….or at least I’m hoping! I’m a very routine girl so I’m ready to get back at it. Although I did really enjoy the down time! I thought I would start off with some birthday sparkles today. After all who doesn’t love bling and we all celebrate birthdays!!!
This card is actually sort of a mini card. It still fits into a regular envelope but it’s 4″ x 4-1-1/4″. I cut the cardstock at 4-1/4″ (in half) and then at 8″ to fold in half. Something a little different!!!
My card base is Bermuda Bay and I layered on a piece (3-1/4″ x 4″) of the Lily Impressions Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Next, I took a piece of Whisper White (3″ x 3-3/4″) and stamped the cake in Melon Mambo Ink. The cake is from the Happy Birthday to You Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set. Right after stamping, I took the Wink of Stella Pen and colored over the flowers. This makes the ink bleed just a bit while adding the perfect amount of sparkle!
I love the perfect hint of pink and shimmer! After coloring this, I layered it onto the card front and added a few Champagne Rhinestones. You can also use some of the Peacock Rhinestones for different color options! I love them all!
For the inside of the card, I stamped the greeting from the same set in the center and then did the top corner of the cake stamp in the bottom right corner. This gives the perfect flower coordination to the inside of the card. Of course, I colored it with some Wink of Stella too!
