Happy Birthday

Welcome to today's post and let me just say that the color choices were simple but this card went in a totally different way than I had imagined. I don't know if anyone else has a hard time coming up with new layouts but this one sure did a number on me. Purples and cream are the colors of the day and I like the final results. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.
Built for Free Using: My Stampin Blog
1. Make a card base from Very Vanilla Core’dinations cardstock
2. Make a layer ( 5 ¼ “x 4”) from Perfect Plum Core’dinations card stock 2 times (one for the inside)and then run through the Fancy Fan embossing folder. 
3. Using the Squares framelits collection, the largest plain square, cut a piece of Very Vanilla Core’dinations and then another one in the next size down out of a piece of Wisteria Wonder Core’dinations card stock.
4. Next cut a circle from Very Vanilla Core’dinations card stock using the Circle Framelits and the Big shot machine (any die cutting machine will do).
5. Stamp an image from Sketched Birthday stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink- I used the cake- then color the image using Stampin’ Write markers (Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Hello Honey and Lost Lagoon) and a light brown maker was used for the icing.
6. On a scrap of Very Vanilla Core’dinations stamp the Happy Birthday from the same stamp set in Perfect Plum ink.
7. To assemble the card: Wrap the embossed Perfect Plum panel with the Wisteria Wonder seam binding ribbon and then using the liquid glue adhere the embossed card stock to the cardbase. Adhere the Wisteria Wonder square to the Very Vanilla square and then pop up with dimensional and adhere to the embossed panel. Place the stamped image piece in the center of the Wister Wonder and then place the cut Happy Birthday image below. Scatter medium pearls round the card.
8. For the inside: adhere the Perfect Plum card stock and the Wisteria Wonder cardstock and then adhere to the inside of the card.

 I hope you have enjoyed this project and please check back often for inspiration.
