Created this Birthday Card using a sketch which you can see below. Had fun with giving the strips of scrap paper (try and say that a couple times) a curvy look for a festive birthday card.
Added some faux stitching with a black pen. Used 2 Cuttlebug Oriental Weave embossing folders: on the red strips and on the vellum that the buttons are on.

embossing: Cuttlebug Oreintal Weave
ink: VersaFine Onyx Black
machine: Sizzix BIGkick
paper: vellum, scraps of cardstock -red, black, white
pen: black for faux stitching
stamp: Docerela Creations sentiment 'Happy Birthday'
Stampin' Up: punch - 1 1/4" circle
