Big News Birthday

Woo Hoo!'s you birthday! Well, maybe not yours exactly, but I'm sure maybe someone, somewhere, reading this is having a birthday today.'s a quick & easy card to make using the Big News set.

The little candle and woo hoo! banner stamps included in this set make this card a lot of fun! With a few extra minutes and a few more accessories, you can create a stepped up version like this one...
I used the same color combo of Coastal Cabana, Pear Pizzazz, Crisp Cantaloupe, Strawberry Slush with a pop of Basic Black on both cards, but changed up the background panel by swapping colors and embossing folders. I just love that new Zig Zag Embossing Folder! Since I added ribbon to this one I embossed the Crisp Cantaloupe layer instead of stamping it with the cute candle stamp.

Using the fine tipped Project Life Journaling Pen, I added a little doodle border around the main image to sorta match the hand drawn look of the banner, and finished it off with a Basic Rhinestone in each corner.

With the start of the new month, Stampin Up! has a great new special! When you buy three packs of Designer Series'll get the third one FREE! (Specialty paper & stacks are not included in this offer)
