Happy Birthday Delivery, Birthday Memories, Birthday Card

Well since I still had all of the stuff out from my card yesterday, I thought I'd find a card on the net that looked like it would be fun to make. I found this one on Pinterest. You can see the original here.  I did find the measurements were a bit off though.  I ended up cutting the Whisper White piece to 2-1/2" x 3-1/4". And I think the next layer could have been a little larger.  Anyway, here is the measurements for the card as you see it here:\

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black card stock. On top of that is a piece of the "Birthday Memories" Decorative Series Paper (DSP) cut 4-1/8" x 5-3/8". The yellow layer is a piece of the same DSP cut 3-3/4" x 2-1/2" and the Basic Black layer behind it was cut 3-7/8" x 2-3/8".  Next the 1" wide strip of Black DSP was taped down over the yellow layer.  I used the Triple Punch to make the right ribbon looking end and then I trimmed the on the left side piece after I taped it in place.

The Whisper White piece was cut 2-1/2" x 3-1/4" and the Basic Black layer was cut 2-5/8" x 3-3/8". I stamped the greetings from the "Happy Birthday Delivery" set.  I die cut the cake using the matching dies that go with the set. I set the layer in place using Dimensionals and then I set the cake in place with more Dimensionals. 

This is a very easy card to make and I really like the layout. Though if I were to make it again I would add a half inch to the yellow layer to make it longer so it would measure 4-1/4" x 2-1/2" and the Basic Black layer would be cut 4-3/8" x 2-5/8". And if I wanted a little more yellow to show, I would trim off the top of the Whisper White piece another 1/8".  But I think the card looks great the way it is.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
