Fancy Fan Letterpress Birthday Card

Well, I am back from the annual Stampin' Up! Connection and boy did we have a great time.  It was my first time and I am truly glad that I went.  Thank you to my friend MiRan and her help through the maze of the convention, and thank you to all the great demonstrators I met during the 4 days.
I managed to create a card in between having some quality grandson time!  I used the new Fancy Fan Letterpress found in the main catalogue on page 217 (Item 123129 - $9.95 Canadian).....
I used Wisteria Wonder and Pool Party on this card, two of the 2011-13 In Colours.  I inked the letterpress in VersaMark and ran it through my Big Shot on the Wisteria Wonder cardstock.  I love the background this created.  Then to take it up a notch, I spritzed it with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz - ooh lala the bling! LOL
Stamps:  Bring On The Cake
Ink:  VersaMark, Wisteria Ponder
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder, Pool Party
Other:  Fancy Fan Letterpress, Lace Ribbon Border Punch, Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz, Wide Oval Punch, Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon
I punched out a long string of the Lace Ribbon Border Punch, then cut it and created a frame around the cake image piece in Pool Party, then I punched some more in Whisper White and created a border for the bottom of the Whisper White piece.  I stamped the cake image again on Pool Party cardstock, then cut it out and popped it up on the original image to add a bit of dimension.
Oh I love my craft room and I am so glad to be back.
Happy Stampin' .............. ................ .......................

Lovely card Glenda. I have the letterpress and have yet to use it. You have inspired me to do so.
