The inspiration for my card was a recent get together with several of my very good stampin’ buddies to celebrate a birthday.  The new Birthday Friends set was just too perfect.

I created a version of a stair step card, with the back step actually a complete card.

I used two of the main image and colored one complete image with alcohol markers.  I used a glue pen to add Jasper Blue, Daisy, and Cyclamen glitters to various parts of the image.  This was added to layers of blue and pink and added to the back card size step.

On the second image, I just colored the gift, cake, and the goblet base. I cut across the top, just above the cake plate, fussy cutting around the gift and cake.  After glittering, this was also added to layers of blue and pink and adhered to the 2nd step so it lined up with the back image when setting open.

For the bottom step I added a punched border on top of the pink layer.  Then I ran a strip of 1/8” "Tear-ific" Tape along the bottom and added Jasper Blue Velvet glitter.

I used the wonderfully appropriate sentiment about growing old with the “right” people – my great friends, of course.  The was die cut using the oval from Spellbinders’ Radiant Rectangles and sponged with ink before removing from the die.  I popped this on the top.

Once I figured out the measurements I needed, this was easy putting together.  You can find full details on this card in the gallery here.
