aged to perfection by Diane Zechman

Hello Ai friends and happy Monday!
Today I am sharing a card using the Michael's exclusive set, SC0794- Big Birthday Wishes.  I almost always use one of the larger images on the front of my card but today I "put the outside in" and moved the main image to the inside.
For the outside, I was inspired by a card I received a few years ago.  I cut and adhered 1" squares to a brown layer (A great way to use up scraps!) and then embossed the layer with polka-dots.  I used some of the smaller images (cupcake & banner) plus a sentiment to decorate.

The cupcake and sentiment are popped with foam dimensionals and I added a few rhinestones to accent.

The main image was stamped on the inside and I selectively colored the candles only.

Have a great Monday and… happy stamping!


  1. Very cute and lovely sentiment!

  2. Such a fun card! I love how the focal image is on the inside.

  3. LOVE how you did this, Diane!! So creative and cute!!!

  4. Awesome idea to put the "outside in"! Makes me rethink my stamps!!
