Birthday Celebrations

New Years Day is actually my half-birthday (does anyone celebrate those?! I believe in celebrating :-) so my card today is a Birthday card. And really, there is always a need for Birthday cards, isnt there?
This card is easy, but full of texture and warmth. I used the Build a Cupcake punch to make the cupcake, candle, and "confetti". I also used the large Scallop Circle punch for tha background, and then used a technique called "Embedded Embossing". I layered all the punch pieces onto cardstock, and then used an embossing folder on the whole thing. I used the Square Lattice Embossing Folder for this card.
The sentiment is stamped before embossing, and is from the Upsy Daisy stamp set. I used Black, White, and Pool Party card stocks and Pool Party ink.

I hope the new year brings you many days to celebrate!
Happy New Year & Happy Crafting!
