Designer Tips: . The jumbo stamps look great going off a card, as a background or as a focal. The large words are perfect centered on the front of the card. . Glimmer mist looks great as a soft background for your card. . To get a tone-on-tone effect, sponge on a color lightly, then stamp over it, fully inking the stamp.



  1. Place the card so the fold is on the top. Stamp a jumbo rose in the top right and bottom left with Berrylicious ink. Use the stylus and a blender tip to fill in the roses lightly with Berrylicious ink. Use a separate blender tip for the Line Pastel ink and fill in the white space. Spray onto the roses with Red Velvet Glimmer mist. If the card curls, place a paper towel on top and weigh it down with books to dry.
  2. Stamp "happy birthday" with Versamark in the center and sprinkle on white embossing powder. Emboss with heat embossing tool. Place a white lace border across the top and a scallop border along the bottom, 1/4" from the bottom. Cut a 6 1/2" long strip of Zips and apply it to the center of the scallop lace border. Press light green ric-rac onto the Zips to adhere. Trim excess. Tie a small bow of sheer green ribbon and adhere to the bottom right with Zots.
  3. For the inside: Stamp a jumbo rose in Berrylicious in the bottom left. Fill in with the blender tip as on the front. Mask off the top panel by covering it with a piece of scrap paper (or you can use a piece of stencil tape). Fill in the rest of the white area by sponging on Lime Pastel. Stamp some swirls onto the background in Lime Pastel. Print a greeting on a small piece of white cardstock and ink the edges with Berrylicious using the blender tip. Glue the greeting to the card 1 1/2" from the top and 1/4" from the right.
