Special Someone Happy Birthday Card

 This card was made using a sketch that I found on Pinterest. I had a great time 
working with the Special Someone Bundle. I also used the 2″ circle punch

 to not just punch out the circle but the grass as well.

I hope you enjoy this card.  If you’d like to take a crack at it here are the instructions along with a list of supplies that I used.  Have fun!
1. Adhere one of the 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White sheets to the card front.
2. Using the 2″ Circle punch, punch out 2 circles in Night of Navy and 1 in Crumb cake.
3. On a 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper White sheet stamp the raccoon, squirrel, mouse, 2 large flowers and 3 small flowers.  The flowers will stamped in Black Memento Ink.  Now for the 2-step stamping.  I have found it easier to stamp the detailed part of the image first then stamp the base of the image. For the Raccoon I stamped the detailed image in Black Memento ink then I stamped the base in Smokey Slate directly over the detailed image.  For this stamp set I found that lining up the eyes of the animals first then slowly lowering the rest of the stamp worked great.  The Squirrel I stamped the detailed image in Early Espresso ink and the base in Crumb Cake.  The Mouse I stamped the detailed image in Early Espresso ink and the base in Soft Suede.  The Flowers I stamped the base over the flower petals in So Saffron ink. Once they are all stamped then use the Special Day dies to cut out all the images. 
4. Next using a 1 1/2 x 6 inch strip of Shaded Spruce and the Special Day Dies cut out a strip of grass (Note however far you place your die from the bottom is how long your grass will be).  Once this is done then using the 2″ circle punch, punch out three sections of the grass. (Note: you will just be using the bottom section of the punch.
5. Add the animals to the circles – Squirrel and Mouse will be on the Night of Navy circles and the Raccoon will be on the Crumb Cake circle.  Next add One large flower and one small flower to the Squirrel and Raccoon circles as shown and one small flower to the mouse circle.  Last adhere the the grass to the bottom of the circles.
6. Add a 1 1/2 x 5 1/4 strip of Neutral Designer Series Paper to the card front about 5/8′ from the right side of the Whisper White piece on the card front.  (I used  a strip from the retired Neutral Designer Series paper but you can find a pattern from new patterns in the Neutral pack that will work).
7. Adhere the circle with the Mouse on it to the Designer Series strip about 1 1/4 inches from the bottom of the Whisper White piece (***this measurement is very important so that they will all fit).  Then place the circle with the Squirrel on it above the one with the mouse overlapping just a bit.  Then with stampin dimensionals adhere the circle with the Raccoon so that it sits to the left of the other circles and overlaps each of the other circles just a bit. 
8. On a 1/2 x 3 3/4 strip of Whisper white stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment in Crumb Cake ink to the right of the strip.  Then stamp three small flowers as shown in Black memento ink then stamp the petals in So Saffron ink. Adhere this strip to a 3/4 x 4 inch strip and using stampin dimensionals adhere both to the bottom of the card front as shown. 
9. Adhere a 4 x 5 1/4 Whisper  White piece to the inside of the card and stamp whatever sentiment you like.
