Happy Birthday to You, Birthday Card, 2020 Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration Set

Here's another card I made using the "Happy Birthday to You" 2020 Sale-a-Bration set.  I am starting to like this cake image more and more.  I especially LOVE the font!!!

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock. On top of that I layered some Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the ""Best Dressed" 6" x 6" paper stack.  I want to try to use larger pieces from there but these fell out when I picked up the pack, so I ran with them.

The flowery one measures 3-1/2" x 2" with a 3-3/8" x 2-1/8" layer of Whisper White behind it.

The dotted layer measures 3-1/4" x 1-3/4" with a 3-3/8" x 1-7/8" piece of Whisper White behind it.  I taped those two layers to the front of the card.  The floral one is 1/4" from the side and 1/4" from the top. 

I taped the dotted layer to the floral layer.  It's 1-1/4" from the folded edge of the card base and 1" from the top edge of the card base.

I stamped the cake using black Memento ink in Whisper White card stock. 

Next I stamped the words from the "Happy Birthday to You" set using black Memento ink. I did set it up in my Stamparatus so I could add more ink to the stamp if I had to and I did have to. My ink pad was a little dryer than I like it.

I fussy cut the cake out.  The ink had a little time to dry so it didn't smear when I cut it out.

I colored in the flowers using both light and dark Petal Pink Blends pens. I colored the leaves with the light Old Olive Blends pen. I colored in the center of the flowers with the dark Daffodil Delight Blends pen. I colored the cake with the light Daffodil Delight Blends pen.  And I colored the cake stand using the light Smoky Slate Blends pen.  

I set the cake in place using Dimenisonals and the card was done.

Such a fun card and I LOVE the DSP.

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
