Birthday Wit Forgets Your Birthday

Another fun card today from Birthday Wit.  I really love the fun sentiments in this set and really with it wasn't retiring.  So, I guess I have to use it while I can!  My sister-in-law's birthday is next week and I thought this would be a good card for her!

I spotted this on Too Cool Stamping.  Thanks Angie!  I was going to change up the colors, but I just really love how the Lemon Lime Twist and Bermuda Bay look together.  I did change up the embossing below the main piece though.


Recipe -
Lemon Lime Twist - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Bermuda Bay - 4 1/2" x 3 1/4"
Whisper White - 4 1/2" x 3 1/4", plus a scrap for stamping the sentiment 3" x 3"

When adhering the Bermuda Bay to the embossed card front, I recommend using Tear & Tape because the "dots" make it hard for the glue to get a good hold. 




  • Emboss the Lemon Lime Twist card front with Softly Falling.
  • Emboss the Bermuda Bay with Simple Stripes - or do what I did and use your Simply Scored at 1/4" and every 1/4" to the end.
  • Stamp the Whisper White with the dots and stars.   I used Bermuda Bay and Lemon Lime Twist. 
  • Stamp the sentiment onto the scrap piece of Whisper White and cut out.  Pop it up onto the Whisper White with stars and dots using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Add Rhinestones (I just noticed I forgot the rhinestones on my 2nd card!)



Inside I stamped the Happy Birthday from the Birthday Wit set.


Thank you for looking in today.  Have a Blessed Sunday!
