  • Card base: Lovely Lipstick Cardstock – 5 ½” x 8 ½”; score at 4 ¼” on the long side
  • Basic Black Cardstock – 4” x 5 ¼” for mat
  • Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper cut to 3 ¾” x 5” (cut it at 3 ½” on the long side and flip it over)
  • Whisper White Cardstock – 4” x 5 ¼”
  • Fold the Lovely Lipstick Cardstock card base in half on the fold line.
  • Use the Big Shot to make a ‘sandwich’ in this order for the Big Shot Cutting Machine: Magnetic Platform, a standard cutting pad, the Basic Black Cardstock with the happy birthday die on the upper 2/3 of the piece, and the other standard cutting pad. Run this ‘sandwich’ through the machine. Pop out the cut piece.
  • Adhere the Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper to the Basic Black piece. This will cover where you cut it out. Take a skinny strip of Basic Black Cardstock and using the Multipurpose Liquid Glue cover up the seams where your paper meets. Place the ‘happy birthday’ cutout upside down on the Silicone Craft Sheet and place small dots of Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the back. Adhere to the mat.


  • Place Stampin’ Dimensionals on the mat and adhere to the card base.
  • On the Whisper White Cardstock, stamp the saying and then the streamers.
