Beautiful Birthday

The sixth card in my birthday series is probably my favorite! I love elegant and vintage style cards and this one really ranks up there on my list!  I just absolutely loved the beautiful birthday stamp from the first moment I saw it in Stampin’ Up!’s annual catalog! I wanted to design a card that would really showcase the elegance of this stamp!  I immediately thought of the elegant lines embossing folder because of its fancy, elegant design…plus there is room in between the design to stamp a sentiment! 

I began by stamping the Beautiful Birthday sentiment in soft suede ink on a piece of pink pirouette cardstock. Next, I embossed the pink cardstock with the elegant lines embossing folder paying careful attention to how I positioned the embossing folder around my stamped image.  Then I embellished the card with a variety of my favorite products:  Tea for Two DSP, flower trim, paper doilies, victoria crochet trim, vintage faceted buttons and a bit of linen thread!  What do you think about the design?
