Happy Birthday Gorgeous, Birthday Card

I'm not a big fan of today's card.  I was trying to find a way to use the Specialty Designer Series Paper (SDSP) with the words on it.  I failed!!  But don't despair, I will try again another day!!  LOL

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Mint Macaron.  

Next I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic Black card stock.  To that I taped a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of the SDSP from the "Share What You Love" 12" x 12" paper pack.  This SDSP has some shimmer to the images.  The words don't but the images on the other side have the shimmer.  In real life it's very pretty.

I cut a strip of the green SDSP 1-1/4" x 5-1/8".  I cut a piece of Basic Black card stock 1-3/8" x 5-1/8" and taped it to the green strip.  I taped the green strip layer to the SDSP layers.  I took a piece of black sparkle ribbon about 7" long and taped the ends to the back of the layer.  I used Scotch tape to hold the ribbon in place.  I slipped the end of the ribbon under the piece I taped down and tied a knot and clipped the ribbon from the spool.  I do it like that instead of cutting the piece off the spool so I don't waste as much ribbon.

The words are from the "Happy Birthday Gorgeous" set and I stamped them using black Memento ink.  I die cut them using the oval framelit dies.  I also die cut a Basic Black scalloped oval for the layer.  I taped the two ovals together and set them in place on front of the card using Dimensionals.  

I taped the layers to the card front, added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White to the inside of the card and it was done!  It was simple enough to make but I don't care much for the look of it!!!  I'll try to come up with something else using that word sheet. It was a fun card to make, I do like the layout!!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
