Happy Birthday card....

Okay, here's the challenge - how many birthday items can you use on one card?  Here's your answer!  Okay, maybe you can find some more to use but I think I did pretty good...
  • Pennant Parade stamp set
  • Patterned Party stamp set
  • Bring on the Cake stamp set
  • Itty Bitty Banners stamp set
  • Patio Party DSP
On top of those, this card uses the following colors and other items:
  • Baja Breeze, Raspberry Ripple, Midnight Muse & Whisper White cardstock
  • Ink colors are:  Midnight Muse, Raspberry Ripple, Summer Starfruit & Baja Breeze
  • Bitty Banners framelits
  • Adorning Accents embossing folder
  • Chevron embossing folder
  • Designer Frames embossing folder
  • Petite Pennants Builder punch
  • Pool Party Baker's Twine
  • Rhinestones
To make the platform for the cake, fold your 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" cardstock in half at 4 1/4".  Place it into your paper trimmer lengthwise at 4 1/2".  You will be cutting 1" in from the side of the card.  Cut 1" up from the center line and 1" down from the center line.  Turn your paper around 180 degrees and repeat for the other side of the card.  Using your Simply Scored, score between the two cut lines at the ends.   At this point, I then trimmed an 1/8" off all four sides of the card.  (I waited to do this until afterward so the dimensions were easier to work with.)

I then placed the Biggy Banners framelit in the bottom section of the platform and ran it through the Big Shot.  A Raspberry Ripple piece, stamped with the "Happy Birthday" was then placed behind it using a couple of Dimensionals to give it depth.
