Ok, so this cake is too cute! I just have to use it! It’s from the Happiest of Days stamp set, my new favorite birthday set.
The elements of today’s card all sit on a panel of Flirty Flamingo card stock embossed with the Garden Trellis embossing folder. This is one of the sweetest embossing folders ~ everything looks so good with it!
To add a bit more to this card, I’ve colored in a few places with ink pads and a blender pen. This gives it a little personality 🙂
Pretty Pointer: A good way to add interest to your card is to highlight a stamped element. One way to do that is to fussy cut the stamped image, like I’ve done here with the birthday cake.

Oh dear. Every time I get a new stamp set it becomes my favorite!! Does that happen to you? The Happiest of Days stamp set is now my favorite 🙂 I mean, look at these great fonts! And what about the absolutely cutest single rose stamp ever?
Here the rose is stamped with the Basic Black Archival Ink, and then colored in using a Blender Pen and Flirty Flamingo Ink. The green here is the subtle Pear Pizzaz. And the background piece is Powder Pink cardstock. These colors blend beautifully together.
Here is a photo of the complete stamp set. I haven’t used the cake or the little package stamps yet, but aren’t they the cutest? I’ll be getting to those very soon!

Item No. 143796
Pretty Pointer: When you have a special image or a favorite image, raise it up by using a Stampin’ Dimensional. This adds interest and gives depth to your card front.
In the photo below you see that I first stamped the left side of the card with the single rose stamp. Then for emphasis (and because this is the absolute cutest rose stamp ever!) I stamped another rose on a separate sheet of cardstock, cut it out by hand, and affixed it right over the previously stamped image using a dimensional. Then I put a sweet little pearl in the center.
