Another Happy Birthday Card

Here it is another week and another Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.  Wow!  Where does the week go!?  For this week the challenge is paper pleating.  There are so many great ways to fold paper and use it to embellish any project.  For inspiration I CASED a card from the new Stampin’ Up! Idea Book and Catalog.  I used Summer Starfruit cardstock with Pool Party.  I love this combo!  Summer Starfruit is fast becoming one of my favs.  I stamped my cake image on watercolor paper and used a blender pen and pads to color the banners on the cake.  I embellished the cake with butterflies die cut from the Embosslit Beautiful Wings.  To add sparkle to them I added Dazzling Details to the wings.  The DSP is from Patio Party and the sentiment is from Itty Bitty Banners.  The banner is die cut with the coordinating Bitty Banners Framelits.  For a soft layer in the color Pool Party I die cut a doily using the Paper Doily Sizzlit.  Instead of ribbon I cut a strip of Summer Starfruit and used the Simply Scored Scoring Tool to score my paper to make it easier to pleat.  If you haven’t used the Simply Scored Scoring Tool you need to!  It’s so easy to use and in my opinion the best scoring tool on the market.

  5. A doily, a banner, and some pleats…I’m in heaven. I love this card..who says the “Annual Catalog” is not still an Idea Book. I really like this color combo-I’ll have to try it, as I haven’t got on the Starfruit bandwagon yet.
