Big Day

Hello stampers,
     Hello Tuesday y'all! Is it Spring yet? Lord have mercy I'm so tired of the snow. I wouldn't mind it so much if we got a break & most of it melted before the next storm hit. But at the rate we are going I'm not going to be seeing my grass until July sometime. Bad thing is we haven't had it as bad as some in the New England states or at least in 1 shot like they have. This is my first full winter here in WNY, so it's gotta get better, right?
     Today is another card we did at Kerri's last month. A much needed birthday card, using the Sale-A-Bration set called Big Day. Kerri made it easy to stamp, she actually lined up 3 of the stamps onto one block so all we had to do is ink it with Memento Black & stamp at one time onto Whisper White Card Stock. Then we added the candle separately. I chose to color some of the words & cake in using the Wisteria Wonder & Blackberry Bliss Marvelous Markers, and the flame I used Daffodil Delight Marvelous Marker. This piece was then matted with Blackberry Bliss Card Stock. We used the Top Note Bigz Die to cut out the Wisteria Wonder DSP piece, which was then mounted onto the base of Crumb Cake Card Stock. We added the Whisper White Baker's Twine around the card & attached it to the fussy cut label of Whisper White Card Stock which had been stamped with an additional saying. We also fussy cut the banner piece that went under the label & tied the twine into a bow. To make sure the label stayed in place it is attached to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted.
