March 2024 Birthday Card

It's time for another birthday card!  Do you receive my weekly newsletter?  I share a unique project every week to inspire you.  Please follow this link to subscribe.

I send birthday cards to my siblings, parents, in-laws, nieces, nephews and their children, and a few others.  That's a lot of cards, so I like to purchase birthday themed stamp sets.  My newest one is Cake Fancy.  You get to build a birthday cake with stamps and ink!  I definitely has fewer calories than a real one!  LOL

When creating this card, I tried a few different colors for my cake before I settled on Petal Pink, Pecan Pie and Smoky Slate (cake stand, to make it look like silver).

Other notes:  The candle was too tall for my circle die cut, so I used a scrap to mask/shortened my candle.  That way the flame would be on the circle.  

I often stamp then die cut, but here I started with the circle die cut.  I stamped the cake stand first, building up the cake from there.  After stamping the icing (in Petal Pink), I stamped the flame at the very top of the circle.  The last thing I stamped was the candle itself.

I'm including this photo to show how I coordinate the inside of my card and my envelope.  Do you stamp those?

Until next month, happy stampin'!
