Seize the Birthday - Surprise Party Guest! (Week 4)

Good afternoon!

I'm happy to be back sharing a card for another week of my Surprise Party Guest role at Seize the Birthday.  I love the theme this week as it meant I had to use something I neglect to use far too often!

Every week at Seize the Birthday is Anything Goes as long as it's a birthday theme.

And some weeks there are also optional Toppings

And this week's Topping option is...

Two Patterned Papers

I had fun using two co-ordinating papers from the same paper pad here...

I adhered a strip of the floral paper directly to the card base.  I then adhered the polka dot paper over this which had been die cut with a stitched edge die.  This was then stamped with a bold happy birthday sentiment which was heat embossed in white.  I wasn't sure about the placement of the sentiment at first but I now quite like the quirky angles! :)

Materials used:

  • Patterned Paper: Pebbles - Sunny Side
  • Die: MFT Die-namics - Stitched Basic Edges
  • Stamps: Uniko - All Occasion Sentiments #2
  • Ink: VersaMark
  • Embossing Powder: Wow! - Opaque Bright White

I hope you get a chance to play along with this one, it's a great way to use some of those lovely papers that seem to get left in a cupboard or drawer and forgotten about!

Oh, and I hope you all have a fantastic Easter weekend.  This is a scheduled post so right now I'll be leaping out of the office looking forward to four days off work...bliss!


  1. Such a pretty card, Anita! I love that you cut the top panel at an angle and heat embossed the sentiment..I love those quirky angles too! :)

  2. Well, now you have me quite visibly shaken visualizing you literally leaping out of your office window! Oh, I do hope you're on the ground floor, Anita!! As far as your sediment angles go - AWESOME!! How fun and unique and I feel a trend coming on: just think using our pps and our neglected bold and bodacious sediments!! What could be better? I'm all over this! Have a fantastic Easter weekend!! Hugs, Darnell

  3. Very pretty and I love the "quirky" angles of the sentiment.
