A fairly simple birthday card for my friend Becky, who likes Cath Kidston-type patterns.
I used the original Pop 'n Cuts base die, with circle label insert for the card base, and snipped down the circle label so it would be more hidden behind the cake stand.
I hand cut the bunting and little candle. (Love the cake shadow too!)
The papers are from Basic Grey's Mint Julep 6x6 pad.
I used the lovely banner from Tim Holtz's Regal Crest die, and one of his stamps (which I bent round a bit before putting onto my acrylic stamping block), the name was cut using Tim's Typeset die, and the heart is from Owl #2 die. For fiddly bits like the lettering, I always use a fine tipped glue pen - makes life much easier, and is very clean to use.
I added a little of row of bunting to the envelope too...
I made the card quite late last night, ready for a birthday breakfast for Becky this morning, and I popped down the bottom of the garden early this morning to snap a couple of pictures of the card in the sunshine...
Look at the state of the grass! It looks like it's been snowing! I'm now covered in fluffy stuff which has come off our neighbours trees!
