Cutting:

  • Whisper White: scrap to stamp sentiment on at least 3-3/4” x 2-3/4” that you will trim later

  • Granny Apple Green: 3-3/4” x 5”
  • Pineapple Punch: scrap about 1-1/2” x 2-1/2”
  • Ribbon: 6-1/2” and 4”
Birthday Happiness Instructions:
  • Using Granny Apple Green ink stamps small flower from Happiness Surrounds to create a background on the Granny Apple Green cardstock. Birthday Happiness
  • Adhere Granny Apple Green cardstock to Bermuda Bay with SNAIL Adhesive.
  • Run SNAIL on one side of Pineapple Punch ribbon atop the Silicone Craft Sheet. Remove any stray adhesive strands and affix to center of the Granny Apple Green piece wrapping ends around back. With SNAIL adhere the ends to back of card. Tie small ribbon with shorter ribbon piece and set aside.
  • Using a direct ink to stamp method, ink the large Happy Birthday image by carefully inking directly onto stamp with each of the two colors. Keep inking till the lines of color meet. Huff (exhale closely to the inked parts to moisten them) on the stamp then stamp onto the Whisper White so you align close to two adjoining sides. Trim around other two edges to match the borders you chose when you stamped the image. Or stamp in the center of your scrap and trim. Either works.
  • Align your Happy Birthday piece along two adjoining images on the smaller Bermuda Bay piece of cardstock. Adhere with SNAIL. Trim the other two ends to match.
  • With Stampin’ Dimensionals, attach sentiment piece to card base aligning right of center.
  • Stamp two flowers with Pineapple Punch, die cut with Snowfall Thinlits, scrunch flowers to add dimension and adhere to sentiment with Mini Glue Dots.
  • Using Wink of Stella lightly brush inside of Happy Birthday letters and the two small flowers.
  • Add Tranquil Tide Glitter Enamel Dots to center of Pineapple Punch flowers.
