Birthday Card Bash Project 3

Picture Perfect birthday wishes!

Since 70% of the cards I make are Happy Birthday I scope out the catalog for sets and accessories that will help make those cards easier! 

The Picture Perfect Party Suite does that! It contains pretty paper (including cardstock), a beyond awesome stamp set with lots to offer, and even ink!! 

I love that Stampin' Up! has brought back the little Stampin' Spots! A perfect "try me" size of ink in a 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" square. 

The Picture Perfect Party Stampin' Spots includes 4 colors, Bermuda Bay, Berry Burst, Peekaboo Peach, and Pool Party. 

Here's the Basics

Cardbase (Whisper White): 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" folded in half along the long side for a left side opening card

Accent layer (Berry Burst): 4" x 5 1/4"

Paper Accent (Picture Perfect Party): 4" x 2"

Greeting piece (Whisper White): 1 3/4" x 3"

Greeting Accent piece (Lemon Lime Twist) 2 1/2" x 2 1/2"

Add a little splash of color with Bermuda Bay 3/8" Mini Chevron ribbon laid across the paper seam (you'll want to use Mini Glue Dots to hold the ribbon)

The candles are stamped "watermark style" by using Berry Burst ink (Spots) on Berry Burst cardstock!

The greeting is stamped with the Bermuda Bay ink spot!

I didn't use the new embossing folder that is part of the Suite: Simple Stripes Embossing Folder or the cute and colorful Birthday Mini Binder Clips but both of them are in my Shopping Cart!

Stash tools (you will use these often on many projects):   2 1/4" circle punch and the Everyday Label punch

Use SNAIL or your favorite adhesive to hold the two punched greeting pieces together. Then pop them up with Stampin' Dimensionals!

Just so you know, if you pick up the basic supplies for this card you'll have enough to get a Sale-A-Bration freebie

Add in the Stash tools and the Suite products that weren't used and you can choose two freebies or one of the new this year $100 choices

The tough part will be trying to decide what to choose! 

Have fun making this card!
