I love spring, color, and movement.  This card has all those things!  What a fun Happy Birthday* card!

The star of this card is Amplify.  Amplify bubbles when you dry it with a heat gun.  Using it with a foam stamp gives different thicknesses so you get a variety of effects.  The popped ridges also give the stamp additional dimension and structure.

Then using two together really amps up the flower center!

*I ended up using this card for another purposed and changed the sentiment to “Thinking of You.”

Steps:
