Animal Birthday Card


On the weekend we went to a Birthday party for a little boy in our family who celebrated his first birthday.
I wanted to make a really bright birthday card for him so decided to use these lovely papers and stamps from our Stampin' Up! collection.

The stamps are from the 'Wild About You' set and the papers are from the 'Jersey Shore' Designer Series.

I stamped the three animals on white card then punched them out with a circle punch. They were then attached to contrasting scalloped circles made from some of the papers in the set.

I had then mounted the dotty paper onto some dark blue card then onto the orange base card.
I crimped a strip of the dark blue paper and attached it across the lower half of the card then added the animal circles and the birthday 'medallion' using 3D foam dots.

The birthday 'medallion' was made with a dark blue scalloped circle with contrasting smaller circles adhered over the top. I then added a blue holographic peel-off sticker which was the number 'one'.

The greeting was from the same stamp set and after stamping it on white card, I inked the edges then attached it to the centre of the crimped strip. I then added a self-adhesive gem either side of the greeting to finish off the card.
