Using the Stamparatus stamp positioning tool (watch my video with Stamparatus tips here), stamp “wish” in Pool Party ink on Whisper White card stock and stamp again (layer over “wish”) with the coordinating dotted “wish” in Basic Gray ink.  Both stamp images are from Stampin’ Up! Broadway Birthday Photopolymer stamp set.

Crop “wish” using the marquee die from Broadway Lights Framelits Dies, the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine and Magnetic Platform to keep the die in place.  Purchase the Broadway Birthday Photopolymer stamp set and Broadway Lights Framelits Dies together as a bundle and save 10%!

Stamp “make a” and “it’s your birthday” (Broadway Birthday Photopolymer stamp set) in Basic Gray Ink on Smoky Slate card stock.  Trim “make a” to approximately 1 1/4 x 3/8 and “it’s your birthday” to approximately 2 x 1/4.  Adhere both to the sentiment layer with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Add Silver Metallic Thread to the back of the “wish” sentiment.  TIP:  Add four or five Glue Dots to the back of the “wish” layer.  Wrap thread around three or four fingers four or five times.  Cut and press into glue dots.

For a little “stellar” bling, add silver sequin stars from Twinkle Adhesive Backed Sequins to sentiment and designer series paper.
