I used this month’s stamp set to create my daughter’s birthday card. I wanted to make it fun and interactive so I used fun flock and adhesive pearls to decorate the cake layers and paper pieced them on the cake stand. On the inside, I used fishing wire to hang the balloons and made presents from scraps of cardstock and B&T. I used Perfect Pearls to add shimmer to the candle flames and I also added it to the cake stand and the flowers on the inside of the card. I sponged Hollyhock ink onto the “bow” of one of the gifts which is actually petals cut from store bought paper flowers. My daughter loved the card and I have to say, it was a lot of fun to make.
