It's a BIRTHDAY BASH!



Welcome to our Birthday Bash! Hopefully you were over at Annie's blog http://www.lovemecard.blogspot.com/ before here, but if not, head on over there too! It's the 25th Birthday of Stampin' Up! and we wanted to celebrate with you.  For this card(this is a card for a swap at Convention, I sure hope nobody is here from my group...lol) I used that awesome Birthday Basics DSP ( and this month, buy 3 packs and get one FREE!)to make the double pocket card.  The colors are so bright and cheery in this paper pack, it SCREAMS CELEBRATE! I stamped the cake and the word celebrate with Soft Suede ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and left them uncolored.  I attached the "celebrate" to a toothpick for a fun little flag.  I punched out the cake with the 1 3/8" circle punch and a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe with the Scalloped Circle punch and added some fun little holes using the 1/4" handheld punch and adhered it to the front of the card. I added a strip of Silver Glimmer Paper with a piece of gorgeous Pistachio Pudding Ruffled Ribbon around to the bottom part of the card. (Stunning!)  For the tags, I just layered Very Vanilla cardstock with Bermuda Bay cardstock and stamped the balloon and the Happy Birthday in Soft Suede ink.  I stapled some Raspberry Ripple Stitched Ribbon to the top of each and stuck them in each pocket.  I had to make 11 of these cards and had a blast doing so!   Thanks for stopping by and looking....  now you should go check out Jennifer's blog http://www.happy2scrap4life.blogspot.com/!
