“Best Day!” for Birthdays is a great stamp set that I could not resist purchasing. This set is found in the January – April 2023 Mini Catalog on p. 67. Besides the super cute cat, I think the fun artwork in this set is what caught my eye. Such a great set for creating a playful birthday card!

For a very happy vibe, I chose Mango Melody, Parakeet Party, Highland Heather and Tahitian Tide for my color palette. I stamped the image in “Black Memento Ink” and then colored with markers in the above colors. I added a basic black layer between the “Stitched Rectangle” and “Deckled Rectangles” dies. A piece of “In Color DSP” was added to the folded base. Then I added an embossed strip from the “Stripes & Splatters” Embossing Folder to cover this transition area. I added “Wink of Stella Glitter Brush” to the colored frosting dots on the cake but the shimmer is always difficult to capture in a photo.

A few more details competed this card. I stamped the “Happy Birthday” greeting with “Memento Black Ink on Parakeet Party card stock. This was an easy image to cut out by hand and then mount with “Mini Dimensionals” to the card. I wrapped a piece of “Parakeet Party 1/8″ Metallic Woven Ribbon” from corner to corner. I knotted this ribbon and then “frayed” the ends, love this fringe look! This entire focal layer was placed on “Dimensionals”. Lastly, I added two of the 2022-2024 “In Color Matte Decorative Dots”. Super cute and easy card!
