Birthday Memories, Beautiful Bouquet, Birthday Card, 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Catalog

I love these cards that add so much from just a piece of scrap Decorative Series Paper (DSP).  This was a fun card to make, though I did have to fussy cut the cake.  The girl was from an image on the "Birthday Memories" DSP and I was able to die cut her out. 

So lets begin to assemble this card.  Firs I had a folded half-sheet of Whisper White cardstock for the base of my card. Then I took my scrap of DSP that measured  1-3/4" x 5".  You can use about any piece you have as long as it measures 5" long.  And you can shorten that and adjust the placement to fit. I like to use up scrap pieces this way.  The layer behind it is a 2" x 5-1/4" piece of Pacific Point cardstock.  I taped those two layers together and taped them in place on the card, lining up the top, bottom and left side.  

Next I die cut the scalloped circle using Pacific Point and I die cut the stitched circle using Whisper White cardstock.  I added Deminsionals to the back of it.

I die cut the girl and taped her to the circle.  Then I fussy cut the cake and set it in place. I didn't tape it right away because I wanted to make sure that is where I wanted it to be.

I didn't find a greeting in the set that fit the space on the upper right corner so I got out the "Beautiful Bouquet" set and used the "Happy Birthday" from there.  I stamped it using Pacific Point ink.

Once I was done with all of that, I set the circle in place and then taped the cake in place.  I tied a bow on the circle.  I didn't have any Pacific Point Baker's Twine so I used a piece of DMC floss instead.  

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,

This card brings me memories of books I read as a child that depicted little girls like the one on the DSP. There is a sweetness to it and a reminder of gentler times.
