Best Day, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello. I'm so happy you are here to see today's birthday card. It was fun, quick and easy to make. Read on to see how to make one yourself.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. My card opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Country Floral Lane" 12" x 12" package. I taped it to the front of the card base.

Next I took a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock and cut it on the bottom at 1-1/4" on each side and up to the corners. I set the piece aside until I was done with the cupcake.

The cupcake cat is from the same "Best Day" set. It was stamped using black Memento ink and was fussy cut out.

I colored the cat in using my dark Blushing Bride Blends pen and then I added some highlights using the Nude Blends pen. I also colored the eyes in using my light Granny Apple Green Blends pen. The cupcake "paper" was colored using the light "Crumb Cake" Blends pen. Then I switched to markers for the rest of the piece. I colored in the dots using Daffodil Delight and Mint Macaron along with the hat. The balloon is also Daffodil Delight. And the bow tie was colored in using Poppy Parade.  Dimensionals were added to the back. I set the piece on top of the Basic White piece to see where the words should go. 

The words are from the same set and were stamped using the black Memento ink. And then I took my Blending Brush to scrub on some Mint Macaron ink where the cat image will be. Dimensionals were added to the back of the Basic White piece and it was set in place on top of the DSP.

Dimensionals were added to the back of the cat piece and it was set in place on top of the Basic White piece. And the card was done.

This was a fun card and I'm excited to make another one using this adorable cat!

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's birthday card,
