Happy New Year! Welcome to the first ICS Blog Hop of 2020! This month’s theme is “Let the Sale-A-Bration Begin” and we’re featuring products from the new Sale-A-Bration brochure that goes live in just 2 days. I used the Happy Birthday to You stamp set to create today’s project.

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Daffodil Delight card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper (DSP) layer cut to 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″
  • DSP sentiment layer cut around the stamped sentiment
  • Daffodil Delight CS cut to 4-1/2″ x 1/2″

Stamped with the Happy Birthday to You stamp set:

  • cake in black Memento ink onto a scrap of Whisper White Thick CS
  • sentiment in black Memento ink onto a scrap of DSP

Cut using the Stitched Rectangle Dies:

  • cake layer (used the 3rd largest rectangle die)
  • border from a scrap of Bermuda Bay CS (used the largest and the 2nd largest rectangle dies)

Cut using the Banner Triple Punch:

  • both ends of the Daffodil Delight CS strip

Colored using Stampin’ Blends Markers:

  • cake in Light Daffodil Delight, leaving the center white
  • flowers in Light and Dark Calypso Coral, and Dark Daffodil Delight
  • leaves in Light and Dark Bermuda Bay
  • cake stand in Light Smoky Slate, leaving the center white

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • DSP layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • Bermuda Bay CS border and cake layer adhered onto the DSP layer using Foam Adhesive Strips
  • Daffodil Delights CS strip glued onto the back of the sentiment layer
  • sentiment layer glued onto the cake layer
  • Flower Faceted Gem applied onto the sentiment layer
  • optional: glue a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White CS onto the inside of the card. This isn’t needed because the Daffodil Delight CS is light enough to write on.
