A Bright and Cheerful Happy Birthday in layers.

Designed by Jeannie Phillips - Southside, AL
Click on any picture to enlarge.
Two of the ladies from my card class need a Happy Birthday card for their husbands...this is what I made for that... hope that they like it.... it had great layers...I was really happy with how the black background for the shape made the card pop so... it worked good with the bright colors.
Hope everyone has had a great weekend... I have!!... Hugs, Jeannie
Since I did so much welding there are no Cricut instructions for this card.
Base Camp
"Happy Birthday" Shadow sizes on the letters with only the height given the width will be right when you set the height...
H - w 1.46 x h 2.31, B w 1.45 x h 2.10
All other letters h 1.26
"Happy Birthday" regular letters... sizes on the letter with only the height given the width will be right when you set the height.
H - w 1.32 x h 2.16, B - w 1.31 x h 2.19
All other letter h 1.26
Asterisk shadow and regular cut cut @ h 1.32.
Doodle Charms
Cupcake and its layer cut @ h 2.26
Cupcake Shadow cut @ h 2.37
Because I wanted the candles cut in another color I used a George rectangle to make new candle and A Child's Year for a teardrop to make a new flame.
Rectangle cut @ w 0.22 x h 0.62
A Child's Year
Teardrop cut @ 0.21 x h 0.38
I welded the Happy Birthday shadow together except for the H along with one of the cupcake shadows and cut duplicated that ...the first layer I attached to the background paper the second one I popped from the first one... I cut 2 H shadow shapes...and popped each from the need two extra cupcake shadows to pop one from the second welded shadow piece and the next one on top of that.... I popped on shadow asterix from the welded letters and then added the white Astrix pieced... I glued the whole cupcake piece to the top cupcake shadow with the candle trimmed off... I glued one icing piece directly on top of that...and then I embossed and popped the top icing piece on top of that... the candle and flame are glued directly to the top shadow piece of cupcake....I hope that these instructions are clearer than mud!
