Best of Birthdays February Play Day Project!

February Play Day was a fun one, and also quite memorable because it snowed just after the eleven wonderful ladies who attended arrived!  It actually snowed rather hard (for Chattanooga) and the ground, sidewalk and roads were covered.  I couldn't resist taking a few pictures!

We weren't too worried about the snow; I had peanut butter and jelly for sandwiches and lots of cardstock, ink and stamps, so we knew we would have fun if we got snowed in!  Fortunately, the weather changes fast in Chattanooga, and the snow was practically gone when we were finished with our Play Day projects!

We used the BEST OF BIRTHDAYS stamp set, a special set made to celebrate Stampin Up's 25th Anniversary, to make this card at February Play Day:

This was a fun card to make!  It also showcases the new Honeycomb Embossing Folder from the Spring catalog.  To make the "Happy Birthday" oval, we inked the stamp with Midnight Muse and stamped the image onto Whisper White cardstock, cleaned the stamp and inked up with Primrose Petals, which was also stamped onto Whisper White cardstock.  We fussy cut the Midnight Muse oval and the Primrose Petals Birthday banner. then adhered the banner to the oval.  We punched a Midnight Muse oval with the largest oval punch, and adhered our stamped oval to the punched oval.
It is hard to see in the picture, but we used the color spritzer to add Midnight Muse and Primrose Petal spritz to the top of the card.

We used the CELEBRATE stamp from the Best of Birthdays on the inside of the card, stamped in Midnight Muse and colored in with Primrose Petal marker.
