From myself to several friends, this past year has been a milestone birthday year.  I did not originally think of that when I began planning today’s card, but when I chose the final DSP to use it hit me.  I am sometimes slow that way.  However it worked out, this card would be perfect for a milestone of any kind.


Stampin' Up!, Piece of Cake, Amazing Life, Broadway , Jackie Beers

Piece of Cake Bundle, 150579


Do you see what I mean?  The black, silver, and gold would work for most special birthdays.  I love this Broadway Bound Designer Series Paper.  The gold foil is just awesome.  And of course the two different stamp set, bundles, I used were my must haves from the Occasions Catalog.

I mixed these two great sets, Piece of Cake, and Amazing Life, to get just the right look.  The sentiment is from Amazing Life and the cake is from Piece of Cake.  I adore the punch, but I am partial to punches anyway.  This one is so easy to line up with the cake.

I will say I used Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets for the cake stand and that little strip of  gold foil separating the DSP and the stamped images.  Both wold have been a tad difficult to add glue to.  At least for me anyway!  I felt the little strip was the perfect divider and love the finished look that it gives the card.
