Sunshine and Sparkles Happy Birthday

Today I’m sharing a card that I made with the Beautiful Birthday stamp and the new Sunshine & Sprinkles DSP from Stampin’ Up.

  • 3/16″ Corner Punch (119871)
  • Blossom Punch (125603)

I started with a card base of Melon Mambo cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5-1/2″.  Then I cut a layer of Sunshine & Sprinkles DSP to 4-1/4″ x 3-1/2″ and I cut the bottom with the Large Scallop Edgelits die.  Next, I cut two strips of the Sunshine & Sprinkles DSP to 3/4 x 3-1/2″ and I cut both of them with the Large Scallop Edgelits die also.  I layered the three scalloped DSP pieces and adhered them with SNAIL.  Then I cut a square of Melon Mambo Card Stock to 2-3/8″ x 2-3/8″, stamped the Beautiful Birthday sentiment in VersaMark ink, sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  Next, I rounded the corners of the sentiment panel and the DSP panel using the 3/16″ Corner Punch.  I adhered the sentiment panel to the DSP panel with SNAIL.  Then I wrapped a strip of the Two-Tone Ribbon around the middle of the card and I adhered it with SNAIL and I adhered the DSP layers to the card front using also using SNAIL.  I created the flower by punching 4 Blossom Punches from the Creped Filter Paper, placing them on top of each other, piercing the center and placing a brad through the pierced center.  I rubbed the edges of the flower along my Melon Mambo ink pad to add a touch of color and I adhered it to the card using a Glue Dot.  I finished the card by adding three medium sized rhinestones above the ribbon.
