Birthday Delivery, Birthday Memories, Birthday Card

I LOVE using this Birthday Memories" Decorative Series Paper (DSP).  It's got some fun papers in the pack.  I was not so fond of that yellow paper but once it was put with the red and the focal panel, well.... I think I now like it!! LOL  There's usually a design or two in a pack of DSP that I don't like but as I work with it I end up liking it.  Ever have that happen to you?

This was a fun card to make.  The cake was die cut from the "Birthday Memories" DSP.  I set it in place using Dimensionals.  The words are from the "Birthday Delivery" set, the two were a bundle you could purchase together at a discount.  I stamped them using black Memento ink.

Now for the measurements.  

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black card stock.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of the red and white cake DSP.  On top of that is a 2-1/2" x 4" piece of the yellow DSP. And it's layered on a 2-5/8" x 4-1/8" piece of Basic Black card stock. 

A black card stock ribbon was next. It's cut 3/4" wide by 6" long.  I punched the end of the ribbon using the Triple Ribbon punch. I set it on top of the card, marked it and then trimmed the left end.

Next came the focal panel.  It's a piece of Whisper White card stock cut 3" x 2-1/4".  And the Basic Black layer behind it is cut 3-1/8" x 2-3/8".  I stamped the words before I taped those two layers together. The focal layers were just taped down, no Dimensionals.  Then I added Dimensionals to the cake and set it in place on the focal panel.  And that was it.  This is my card for the swap tonight!!  I had 2 months to work on it and the week before I need it I finally finished it.  I did start it last month, I had good intentions!!!  Don't we all?  LOL

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
