1. Fold card base in half at 4 ¼” and burnish.  Using VersaMark ink, stamp hat over the entire front of card.
2. Attach 1” x 4 ¼” striped DSP approximately 1” up from the bottom of the card.
3. Attach the 1” x 5 ½” dots DSP approximately ¾” from the left side of the card.

5. Stamp “It’s birthday time!” in Bermuda Bay ink on the ½” x 2 ¾” Basic White piece.  Punch the right side using the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch.
6. Attach to card using Dimensionals.
7. Use the Stamparatus to stamp the otter and his hat.  To align them, place the otter stamp on one Stamparatus plate so that the top of his head is right on one of the etched grid lines.  Stamp the otter using Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto grid paper to assist in the aligning process.  Remove plate and place the hat along the same grid line on a second plate.  Stamp the hat and adjust the stamp as needed to get the images aligned.
8. Once you have the images aligned, place scrap Basic White paper in the Stamparatus and stamp the otter and hat.  Repeat to make a second otter.  Fussy cut both otters out and color using Stampin’ Blends markers.
