I embossed the Summer Starfruit layer with the Perfect Polka Dot Impressions folder (p. 191), and then attached it to a Raspberry Ripple card base. I stamped the cake, cupcake greeting, and hat onto Very Vanilla card stock with Jet Black Stazon ink (p. 165). I colored them in with Summer Starfruit, Crisp Cantaloupe, Bermuda Bay, Gumball Green, and Raspberry Ripple markers. I stamped the cupcake greeting again on Raspberry Ripple card stock with Raspberry Ripple ink.
The cake Very Vanilla circle was die-cut with the 5th smallest die in the Circles Collection Framelits (p. 186), and the Raspberry Ripple mat was die-cut with the next largest die. The cupcake greeting Very Vanilla circle was punched out with the 1-1/4" Circle Punch (p. 182), and the Raspberry Ripple cupcake greeting was punched out with the 1-3/4" Scallop Circle Punch (p. 182). The birthday hat was punched out with the 1-1/4" Circle Punch, and the mat was die-cut with the 3rd smallest die in the Circles Collection Framelits. The cake and hat circles were attached to the card with SNAIL adhesive (p. 174), and the cupcake greeting scallop circle was attached with Stampin' Dimensionals (p. 175).
The designer paper strip is from the Birthday Basics DSP (p. 153). I punched one of the ends with a corner of the 1" Square Punch (p. 180), and attached it to the bottom right of the card. I punched out a scallop circle from Bermuda Bay card stock using the 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch (p. 182), and snipped between each scallop to form "flower petals." I attached an In Color Dahlia (p. 169) embellishment to the center of the "flower" using a Glue Dot (p. 174). I curved the "petals up, and then attached it to the left side of the DSP strip using a Glue Dot.
