Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration Happy Birthday to You Card

I love the look of white embossing on white cardstock. It has an elegant watercolor feel that is worth the extra “work”, aka fun, of embossing. For this card I used the Sale-A-Bration Happy Birthday to You Stamp Set to make this card. This set is free with a $50 retail purchase.

I began with a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Old Olive Cardstock scored at 5 1/2″. I adhered a piece of 4″ x 5 1/4″ Vellum Cardstock to the front with Mini Glue Dots. I was careful to place them where the next layer would hide them. I cut a piece of 3 1/4″ x 4 11/16″ Seaside Spray Cardstock. I used the Rectangle Dies to cut the 3″ x 4 5/16″ rectangle from Whisper White and swiped it with the Embossing Buddy to remove any static. I stamped the cake image in VersaMark ink and heat embossed with White Embossing Powder. I stamped the “To You” image in Seaside Foam on a scrap of Vellum and heat embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder. I used my Snips to trim it down and banner the end (split the middle and cut in from each side). I used the pointed tip of the Take Your Pick Tool to make a hole in the other end for the Linen Thread.

I colored the image with Stampin’ Blends: Seaside Spray Combo, Dark Daffodil Delight, Old Olive Combo, Gray Granite Combo. I added Wink of Stella to the cake. I adhered the Whisper White to the Seaside Spray with Snail and wrapped the Linen Thread around twice, knotted, added the tag and tied a bow. I secured it in place with a mini glue dot. I then popped this layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a couple of Pearl Basic Jewels.

The inside sentiment is simply stamped in Old Olive Ink on a 4″ x 5 1/4″ Whisper White Cardstock.
