Birthday Card ~ Lot of Layers (post #1)

I usually try to keep my layers to a minimum since most of my cards need to be able to go through the mail so I try to not add a lot of heavy embellishments to them.
Creating cards with lots of layers but not a lot of bulk can be quite a challenge for me.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Card front 5.25 x 4 in. stamped with the Birthday to You stamp from Verve Stamps .
*Sentiment Birthday to You stamp from Verve Stamps. (blog candy)
*Banners from the Flag It Die Set from Verve Stamps. (blog candy)
*Floral stamp from the Flourishes  Old Fashioned Florals stamp set. (blog candy)
*Oval die cut from the Spellbinders Oval One die set.
*Scallop oval die cut from the Spellbinders Big Scalloped Ovals Large die set.
*Doily cut at 3.5 in. from the Cricut Storybook cartridge.
*Pattern paper from Paper Pizazz.
*Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad.
*CTMH Aspen Green and Grape Sherbet stamp pads.
*Copic markers BV00
*CTMH marker Aspen Green
*Ribbon from Little Scrap Pieces. (blog candy)
*Foam tape to add dimension.
WOW that is a long list of crafting goodies. lol

May your day always be filled with love.
