Perfectly Straight Picture Perfect Birthday

Hi!

LOL, try saying that blog post quickly five times!

Today's card is one I made to show off one of the special features of the Stamparatus - the ability to move the plates along the hinge. It's one of the best features of the gadget in my opinion!

I first stamped the Tangerine Tango candle three times, then the Island Indigo dots, and finally the Daffodil Delight flame. I then moved my cardstock slightly on the Stamparatus base and stamped the Bermuday Bay/Rich Razzleberry candle. How cool is it that each candle is perfectly spaced and perfectly stamped? Imagine trying to do that by hand/eye!

The candle wicks were simply drawn on using a Journaling Pen, and then the sentiment panel was popped up over the top using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. The black rhinestones are now retired, but they still make a cool addition to the card.

Would you believe I only used a 4 inch square of the Tangerine Tango Foil Frenzy SDSP for this card? I used a 4x1/2 inch strip for the inside, a 4x3/4 strip for the top of the front, and the rest on the bottom of the front. A great way to help your DSP stretch further. I could get 9 cards out of the one 12x12 sheet by doing this!

Bye for now,

Tina
