Enjoy the Spotlight

Part of our Memorial Day Celebration yesterday was to join in with our 'Dance Family' to celebrate one of the guy's 68th birthday.  His wife threw a huge potluck supper with dancing afterwards in his honor.  

I'd like to share the special card that I made for this occasion, using Clearly Besotted, Cha Cha Cha stamp set. 

Aren't these little piggies the cutest!  

To make this card I stamped each image in the set on Neenah 110# cardstock and used Copic markers for the coloring.  

Next I selected Tailored Expressions Square Block Cutting Plate (TF290) for the outline blocking.  I used a standard circle die to cut all of the images except the single male dancer. For that image, I used a stitched circle die to help him stand out.  After all - he's in the spotlight. 

The tiny 'disco ball' needed to really sparkle, so I stamped it on silver glitter paper and trimmed it closely.  I also die cut a standard 'Happy Birthday' out of the gold paper that I used for the blocking frame. 

The card base is 5 1/2" square, covered with the black, gold and silver shiny paper. After securing the gold blocking outline, then I added each character to the blocks, overlapping the bottom right to be sure he was in the 'spotlight'.  Lastly I added the Happy Birthday sentiment on the left and the white paper inside for writing the birthday message.
