I have been wanting to do a card like this for ages and finally got around to doing it.  There are many examples out there - here, here, here, and here.  Basically, I just stamped the flowers, die cut "birthday" from the stamped part, then layered white cardstock (4 layers - 2 at a time), die cut and glued it all together.  Next I stamped "wishes", taped my stamped piece onto the base, and then inlaid "birthday".  When you die cut the stamped layer be sure to keep all the little bits because you need to put them back in at the end.  Simple card but very effective.  It wasn't easy to photograph so I did a close up also.

I am entering this in ABNH's layer cake challenge.

  1. What a gorgeous card, Betty!! I love the colors and the popped up greeting!

  2. Well - that is so clever and so very pretty - still can't work out how you did it but it is so effective. Now I have to try out my die with that technique!

  3. Oh what a gorgeous card, Betty, and it's blue, too :) I need to get a die that is a bit thicker than my present ones and then I'd love to give this a try - your results are amazing!

  4. Wow! It turned out so beautifully, Betty! I need to try this too - just love it!

  5. Oh, Betty...this is GORGEOUS! I know how 'tricky' this technique is, and you've done such an amazing job! Love your choice of stamps and dies as well as all the pretty blues...Beautiful card, my friend! So glad I inspired you to try this out :-)

  6. Gorgeous Betty. Love those blue roses.

  7. Betty, this card is beautiful! Isn't that a fun technique? thank you for your kind words on my card with this same (almost) technique!

  8. That is a gorgeous card! I love that technique and you nailed it ;-) Thanks for playing along at A Blog Named Hero!
