aged to perfection

Hello friends and happy Monday!

Today I am on the Art Impressions blog with a card using the Michael’s exclusive set, SC0794- Big Birthday Wishes.  I almost always use one of the larger images on the front of my card but today I “put the outside in” and moved the main image to the inside.

For the outside, I was inspired by a card I received a few years ago.  I cut and adhered 1″ squares to a brown layer (A great way to use up scraps!) and then embossed the layer with polka-dots.  I used some of the smaller images (cupcake & banner) plus a sentiment to decorate.

The cupcake and sentiment are popped with foam dimensionals and I added a few rhinestones to accent.

The main image was stamped on the inside and I selectively colored the candles only.

Have a great Monday and… happy stamping!

  1. This card is so cute. I love that you use the image on the inside. Love that set, too. I have the paper pad, but not the set. Glad I can get it at Michaels. Thanks for the inspiration.
