CTMH Birthday Stamps

What fun this was! New set from CTMH, my first use. I will be using this more. Sometimes it is hard to make a birthday card for someone--not always knowing their likes and dislikes. For instance my Sunday School class-You ROCK Bridgebuilders!!

I am actually thinking of trying to make this for s "man" card using browns, blacks and tans and leaving off the flowers on top. What do you think?

I stamped the image in a light Hollyhock ink from CTMH. Then used CTMH markers and Marvy markers to color it in. After it dried I drug the edges through and along the Hollyhock ink pad. Next, I added Diamond Glaze to two layers of the cake and also covered the plate and allowed to dry.

Stamp the pink cardstock with a small flower to give depth in the Hollyhock ink.
I attached the cake to an extra piece of green patterned paper and then attached all to the pink stamped cardstock. Add a pink gingham checked ribbon from CTMH and you are done.

The stamp set includes a couple of sayings which I used on the inside. I added white paper to the inside and stamped in Hollyhock ink:
You're the Sweetest Thing
Happy Birthday
