Or even if it’s not…here’s a fun birthday card for some who is celebrating! This card features the Stampin’ Up! set Build a Birthday. This set is photopolymer, meaning that the material with which you stamp will be clear (or in my case, a little stained perhaps, but still see through-ish). I find this makes it a bit easier to line up the elements for the cake – each layer is a different stamp. In this case, all the layers were the same colour, but you could make it a multi-coloured cake if you wish! Chocolate Chip (I thought that was appropriate) and Tempting Turquoise are the colours, and yes, I re-inked my Tempting Turquoise ink pad after making this card….so the cards from the class were a bit more vivid. I have found the Project Life Cards and Labels Framelits Dies to be so useful – I think I’ve used this label die on a card at each of my last few classes – in this case, it’s for the birthday wishes sentiment (love that script).
