Amazing Birthday

Good afternoon! Well after our warmest Winters' day on Wednesday today is the coldest for 33 years!! With snow in Melbourne's suburbs and rain, sleet and hail in the City it is a good time to be inside :-)
Today's card is a male birthday card with a more layered look and uses the stamp set Amazing Birthday which I was able to borrow from a good friend. It is such fun stamping with friends - we all have slightly different tastes with which to inspire each other and a larger stamp collection to pool :-)

And because I was teaming the stamp with the Maritime DSP the colours were already chosen for me - so easy!

Initially I used both Real Red and Night of Navy markers on the stamp before stamping. But some parts of the image seemed to stamp better than others. So I also stamped the two colours separately and added the red" Make" on dimensionals - and the "Amazing" banner is also cut out and layered on top.
The little banners on the side are simply punched with the Banner punch and their ends slipped under the main panel. 
And the cute birthday cake is punched out and layered onto Navy card too. 

Card stock: Not Quite Navy, Whisper White
Designer Series paper: Maritime
Inks: Not Quite Navy, Real Red,
Stamps: Amazing Birthday
Accessories: 11/4" and 13/8" circle punches, Banner punch, Real Red Grosgrain ribbon (retired), dimensionals

Thanks for taking the time to stop by today :-)

Happy stamping until next time,
