We Must Celebrate, Birthday Card, 2018 Occasions Catalog

I have not played much with the "We Must Celebrate" set and it's going to be retiring at the end of May.  So I thought I would make a fun birthday card using it.  I love the font that is used in that set for the happy birthday.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Old Olive card stock. On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of "Sweet Soiree" Decorative Series Paper.  Actually it's specialty paper because it has silver foil on one side of the sheet. I didn't use that side!  Yup, spend the extra money for foil and use the flat side!! LOL

I die cut a scalloped oval (the largest one in the set of oval dies) and I die cut a Whisper White oval.  I stamped the critters and cut them out.  I colored them using the Blends pens.  The words were stamped using black Memento ink and I trimmed them to 3/8" and the Old Olive layer was cut 5/8".  

To assemble my card I taped the background piece in place.  Then I taped the oval and scalloped layers together.  I set the critters on top to see where I wanted to make a gray colored line to represent a shadow under them. I colored that line in and then I set the critters in place using Dimensionals.  I taped the oval to the card front.  I taped the word and background layer together and set them in place using Dimensionals.  And that was it. Pretty simple and cute too!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
