Happiest of Birthdays for PP541

 Hello and thx for visiting!

I'm cutting it close today with my entry for The Paper Players #541 Challenge - A Clean-and-Simple Challenge from Anne Marie.  However, I guess sometimes that's what happens with birthday cards, you need one quick,  and this is a super easy card for those - need one quick times!  Please click on either my card or the Paper Players image to go directly to their blog post.

I chose to use the Ornate Layers dies simply because they are so beautiful and filled with so many little dots! Yep those little dots are all over my desk - ha.   But isn't it worth it, look at that dimension, love it! 

And here's the card details:

4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Thick Basic White card base ( 4 1/4 x 11 folded in half landscape)

Two pieces of Basic White Cardstock (CS) for the Ornate Layers Dies

Ornate Layers Die 2 sizes

Happiest of Birthdays stamp set

Quiet Meadow stamp set

Ink Pads: Bermuda Bay; Pool Party; Balmy Blue; coastal Cabana

Assembly & Trix:

*  Stamp the dots from the quiet Meadow stamp set across the centre of the card using Pool Party, Balmy blue & Coastal Cabana.  ***Trix, alternate the direction of the stamp to fill in the dots and create a random pattern.

*  Die cut with the largest die and adhere with Stampin' Dimensionals.

*  Stamp the sentiment with Bermuda Bay ink and cut out using the smaller die, adhere with dimensionals.

*You're done!   Go give that card away :)   & wish them Happy Birthday!

Enjoy & have a super day!


  1. Such a beautiful birthday card, Lesley! The ornate dies make it extra special. I love the mix of blues you used for the dots. Thank you for sharing with The Paper Players this week!

    1. Thx so much Ann, the dies are new to me I had to use them! Thx for creating the challenge fed to inspire us!

  2. I love how those fancy edges just elevate the white layers! I think of the little dots as stamping sprinkles; I have a ton from the butterfly dies lol! The colors of your dots are nice and cool looking!! Thanks for sharing at The Paper Players!

    1. Love that thought Amanda, I found myself keeping the swirls that popped out - ahh us stampers are silly sometimes - nothing goes to waste! Thx so much for the fun challenge!

  3. SO pretty, Lesley! The elegant frames really pop on the clean layout. Thank you so much for playing along with my CAS polka dot challenge this week over at The Paper Players!
