And here is what the card looks like when you open it up! Now, that is what I call a happy birthday! A little word of advice if you purchase the pop-up birthday cake die cut for the Big Shot. It is great - it takes a little while, but as you can see it is worth the wait! Above all - use a HORIZONTAL card for this...the bottom part of my cake is spilling over the side. Thankfully, my brother probably won't care!!!

Happy Birthday, Mike!
Here is a birthday card I made for my brother using the Big Birthday Candle. He's turning the big 3-0 this year, so I thought I'd just stick with 3 big candles (30 was quite a few to stamp!!!). Anyway, I used the sketch from The Pink Elephant website and stuck with my last color scheme - real red, bashful blue, and old olive. I used my SU textures to create a textured background and used the center of the diamonds as a guide for placing my silver brads. My stamping technique is called 2-step stampin'.
