HAPPY, happy birthday wishes

Masculine cards are always a challenge for me!

I was thrilled with this combination of a digital stamp (happy - link below) used repeatedly in different sizes, digital words (miscellaneous fonts), electronic die cut (birthday - link below) and "real" die cut "happy" (link below).

I hope that it will help make our nephew's birthday a little happier.


This card is an A5 top fold.
I added a panel of white textured cardstock to the A5 card base, matted the 3" wide
digital sentiment panel with black textured cardstock then adhered it in place.


The birthday is a digital cut file (link below) which I layered by adding offsets
until in had five layers for extra pop against the "happy" sentiment panel.

  
Here is an inside view of the card.
(sorry that it is only a close up of the sentiment only ... I wrote in the card before I took the pic, so you can't see that the base was matted with white, then a layer of black, then another layer of white before adhering the layered "happy birthday" die cuts in place)


I layered the happy die cut 5 times, to give it extra pop
and have the same dimension as the 5-layered "birthday".

*** INGREDIENTS ***
white textured cardstock
black textured cardstock
Silhouette Cameo
Sizzix Big Shot
Helmar 450 Quick Dry liquid adhesive (to adhere layers)
Tombow Mono Multi liquid adhesive (to adhere die cut sentiments)

I am going to enter my card in the following challenges (alphabetical order):

Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog - Challenge #180 - Anything Goes + a Sentiment
Cardz 4 Gals - Challenge #48 - Inspired By A Song
My song is probably the most sung and most recognised song all over the world ... Happy Birthday (to you).  The best thing about this song is that everyone sings it and the variety of voices make for a chorus that always makes me smile, especially when the voices mask my own not-so-dulcet tones!

Quirky Crafts - May Challenge - Going For A Quirky Song
My quirky song is probably the most sung and most recognised song all over the world ... Happy Birthday (to you).  The best thing about this song is that everyone sings it and the variety of voices make for a chorus that always makes me smile, especially when the voices mask my own not-so-dulcet tones!

STAMPlorations - May Challenge - Theme and Sketch
I was inspired by the sketch

      Although it is a CAS card, they are usually more of a challenge for me to make and with so many happy's I just couldn't resist using "Happy Birthday" as my song!
