I hope you have many more wonderful years!

My birthday card features partial die cut technique.

Step  1:  Top white Neenah Solar White 80lbs was stamped with PTI Fancy That and Hero Arts Envelope Pattern with SSS Fog Ink.

Step 2:  Circle was partially die cut, marking off the width of the second die to be left uncut.  The cute little pig from SSS Birthday Farm Animals was lined up with the uncut part of the circle and was partially die cut leaving the bottom attached to the card front.

Step 3:  Pig was stamped with the matching SSS Birthday Farm Animal stamps and colored with Copic markers.  The balloon and party hat were further embellished with wink of stella.

Step 4:  Card front was die cut with SSS stitched rectangle from SSS Bundle of Stitched Shapes..  Birthday sentiment is from SSS Handwritten Borders.  The stamp was curved to fit around the circle and stamped with Black VersaFine ink.  Small heart die cut from SSS Holiday Shapes and colored with Copics and Wink of Stella.

Step 5:  A mask was created for the blue cardstock and circle was sprayed with Sheer Shimmer.  Front and back were attached with Foam tape.
