Red, Orange, Green, and Yellow Happy Birthday to You

I bought this layering stencil from Simon Says Stamp/C.C. Designs. I knew it would make great masculine cards. If you use different colors it would also be nice for feminine cards as well.

For this card I decided to use bright and colorful colors. I used a 6x6" panel of cardstock and adhered it to a MISTI Sticky Mat. This kept the paper from moving and I had enough around the edges to tape down the each layer of the stencil. I ink blended darker at the bottom of each letter and lightened it at the top. Once the inking was complete I used a stitched rectangle die to cut down the panel.

If you have the coordinating die for the stencil it has some small balloon dies, but I already have a lot of balloons dies. I pulled out the Balloon Bouquet from Simon Says Stamp and cut it from gold glitter cardstock and adhered it in the upper right of the stenciled rectangle.

When I went to add the panel to a cardbase I decided to add an orange mat behind the stenciled panel and liked it much better. I added sticky back foam to the back of the panel and adhered it to a top folding cardbase.

A quick and easy card to make.
