Birthday cake!

Here's another one of those stamp sets that's easily overlooked in the catalog. There are 7 small stamps in the set but the things I've made with those 7 small pieces have been so cute!  Here are a few tips to making this card. 1) This stamp set has coordinating designer paper which I used to layer the front of this card.  2) Instead of cutting a large piece of Midnight Muse cardstock for the layer behind the designer paper, I used scraps. The strip to the left and right are separate, 1" pieces.  When they are tucked to the back you can't even tell. This is a great way to save on cardstock and use up those scraps.  3) I used 3" of ribbon to create, what I call, an 'air knot'. It's adhered with a glue dot. 4) Notice how I only corner rounded two corners of my cake image?  Try rounding only one or two opposite corners, too.
