Birthday Bakery SSC175 & PDCC53

I needed a Birthday card for my son today as he is going to a friends 13th Birthday Party tonight and she happens to be a girl. What a relief for me as boys birthday cards are a weak spot for me. I love the sketches that Stamping 411 have every Saturday Morning. This was perfect to go along with the colors over at The Play Date Cafe.

  • I choose to "split" the Top Note Die in half with a ribbon treatment that I wrapped around the back of the card by punching little holes with the Crop a Dile. I did not want to loose the points of the Top Note by wrapping the ribbon over them.

At the top I stamped all of those lovely cakes, and the bottom the wonderful greeting in the same set.

I mounted my DSP strips on Basic Black and positioned them a little to the right to give a sense of shadowing, I hope you can tell in this picture.

For my final touches I sponged Bravo Burgundy Ink all around the Top Note and added those beautiful Rhinestone as again this is a card for a 13 year old. What girl does not love some Bling?
