Fab Friday Sketch Challenge #FabFri169: Birthday Goodness

Good morning!

Summer is the perfect time for birthdays (well really anytime is but I know a lot of friends who have birthdays in the summer so there's lots of celebrating going on).  Today the Fab Friday group has a fun sketch challenge that I thought would be perfect to show off the new Birthday Goodness stamp set because birthdays and donuts, umm yes please!!!

I started with Crumb Cake cardstock for the cardbase and then added a layer of Basic Black as a mat for the Pool Party cardfront which was embossed with the Swirls and Curls Embossing Folder (and then I sponged over the embossing with Pool Party ink so it really pops).

Next I stamped three of the small donuts on Whisper White cardstock using Momento Black ink and colored them in with Stampin' Blends before fussy cutting each out with my Paper Snips.

I attached the three donuts using dimensionals to a Whisper White circle that I cut using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  Now I have a sneak peak from the Holiday catalog for you, check out that glossy look on the donut frosting!  Crystal Effects are back and this time they're shimmery!!  Whoo Hoo!!  So I flooded the frosting area of each donut with the Shimmery Crystal Effects and let it dry (note: crystal effects take a bit to dry so I always add them after I've finished a card so I can let it set overnight to get fully dry).

To finish off the card I had to add the greeting so I stamped it in Basic Black ink on Crumb Cake cardstock and punched it out with the Classic Label Punch before attaching it to the card with dimensionals.

This card is so yummy I could just eat it up (and not have the sugar rush and all the associated calories!) and what a perfect way to help celebrate someone's birthday.  I loved Crystal Effects the last time we had them so I was really excited to see them return, with a twist, and am already thinking about other projects that can use that little glossy finish.
