I was playing with the Perennial Birthday stamp set today. This set is paired with the lovely new Perennial Birthday Project Kit but it offers so many more opportunities.

I started by stamping the large, bold ‘Happy Birthday’ sentiment onto a 3⅝” by 1” piece of Whisper White cardstock using Momento Tuxedo Black ink.

Taking a 5¼” by 3½” panel of Whisper White cardstock I lightly drew 2 pencil lines across the card front an inch apart. I then randomly stamped the flower and leaf images above and below the pencil lines in Peakaboo Peach, Sweet Sugarplum, Flirty Flamingo & Pear Pizzazz ink. When the ink was dry I rubbed out the pencil lines.

I took an 8” by 1” strip of Pear Pizzazz cardstock and using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch punched along the length. I adhered the small scalloped edge to the top of the sentiment strip using Tombow Liquid Adhesive. I trimmed off the excess and used it to edge the bottom of the sentiment strip and trimming off the excess with scissors.

The sentiment was then added to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Iridescent Sequins.

I love the fresh colours of this card. So very pretty.
