Eat More Cake

Happy Tuesday! Today's card is another fun birthday card using new releases from The Cat's Pajamas. The You Say It's Your Birthday set I used includes the numbers 0 - 9 so you can personalize your birthday projects. I decided to use them as a little backdrop, so I randomly arranged the numbers 1 - 9 on an acrylic block, and then stamped a few times on my panel and colored with Copic markers. Next to it I stamped the cake on the cake stand, and to personalize the card, used the numbers 3 and 0 on either side of the cake stand. The cake is paper pieced from a piece of Cogsmo Collection paper from Cosmo Cricket. The other papers on the card are also from the Cogsmo line. For the sentiment panel I stamped the Birthdays are nature's way of telling us to eat more cake sentiment and then surrounded it with the fireworks looking stamp. I added photo corners made from a quarter of a circle and then added some red rhinestone bling. The background is embossed with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. The scallop edge is made with the Fiskars Threading Water border punch. I finished off with some thin black grosgrain ribbon and some Stardust Stickles on the cake.

Okay, this is a super busy week since the next Verve release is just a week away. Our release party will be next Tuesday, September 9 at 8PM Mountain (10 ET, 9 CT, 7 PT)! And I'll be posting a very special challenge you won't want to miss this Friday (Sept 5) on the Verve forum. There's a prize involved that will definitely be worth your while. And the Divas are still showing off their gorgeous pink & brown creations all week for the Verve Project Parade. Then on Monday we'll start our previews of the new Verve sets!
