I adhered the black cardstock on top of the Pear Pizzazz DSP (I used the positive leaf image to make sure the edge pieces that weren't attached were perfectly aligned. Then I trimmed the DSP, so that only the leaf image showed through.
I used the stamp sets 'Borderettes' and 'Big Day' on a piece of Whisper White cardstock and after adhering it, trimmed the edges.
I colored the word 'Birthday' with Pear Pizzazz marker. I just LOVE how this card turned out -- very striking and has a very masculine feel too (which is what I was going for!).
Thanks for looking!
