This card was made as a Design Team card for Try Stampin' on Tuesday Sketch Challenge #395: with the added challenge to use ribbon or twine.
The card base is the standard A2 (5.5"x 8.5" folded in half) from retired SU Groovy Guava cardstock. I chose it because I thought it was a close match to the pink in the cake DSP image.
Using pink and silver ribbon from Michaels, I glued them together, then onto the front of the card base using Recollections tape runner.
The main panel is SU Pink Pirouette cardstock. I used my MISTI to stamp the SU "Endless Birthday Wishes" sentiment three times with SU Groovy Guava ink. The confetti stamp was from the same stamp set. I used Versamark ink, then detailed silver embossing powder. It was heat set with a heat tool. The cake was mounted on the main panel using adhesive foam strips for depth.
The matting for the main panel was die cut using a Sizzix "Dotted Rectangles" die from Michaels' silver cardstock. The main panel was adhered to the silver die-cut using Scor Tape.
Finally, I usedmy Bow-Easy tool to tie a tiny bow, and attache it using a Mini Glue Dot.
I think this card will be great for a special milestone birthday. I'm rating the difficulty level at "3" since there are so many steps,,, especially if you have to fussy-cut the cake from the DSP.
