New In Colors Showcased/ Birthday Cake

I did a Totally Hands On workshop last week and wanted to showcase the New In Colors because I think SU! hit the nail on the head with these colors!  I got this idea from Pinterest, but once again, made it my own.  I started off with a Whisper White card base, and layered a piece of Crumb Cake onto the front, stamped with Happy Birthday from the stamp set Birthday Cake in Early Expresso ink, from the new catalog, and wrapped with a piece of Early Expresso Baker's Twine around it and tied a double bow.  I then cut strips of Whisper White cardstock and punched out my HEARTS FIRST, leaving space between them for the circle punch, and then centered my 1 3/8" punch over the hearts and punched out.  I punched out 1" circles of each In Color and stuck them down to the Crumb Cake and the used Dimensionals to adhere the Circles over the colors. This card was super simple and is a good card to make for future reference of the In Colors! Sorry, I jumped around on you, I told you I was going to share Hostess Appreciation night stuff with you, but this one was so much fun, that I thought it might be a good idea for anyone with upcoming workshops!
