Sparkling Birthday Wit - Stampin' Up! Birthday Wit

 I can always use more birthday cards so I try to always have a birthday card design at my monthly class.  As soon as I read the sentiments in the Birthday Wit stamp set in the Occasions catalog I knew I needed to order it.  They are cute and a little 'fresh' so it's a great change from the "many beautiful blessings on your birthday" kind of sentiments.  More traditional sentiments aren't bad but sometimes you've got someone in your life that a sweet, flowery message just don't work for.

  Since the sentiments are clearly the stars of this stamp set I wanted to present this one front and center.  It just made me laugh as when you really think about cards they are paper folded in half...albeit usually pretty paper with a nice crisp fold but paper nonetheless!  

  The sentiment is first stamped in Dapper Denim (will miss this In Color for sure!) and then again in Berry Burst to just get the "happy birthday" block to cut out and pop up on dimensionals.  

  The card base is Pool Party with the little burst stamped in Pool Party ink.  A strip of the turquoise Myths & Magic Shimmer paper makes a nice sparkly flag for the sentiment to go over.  

  I pulled in the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set to make the Lemon Lime Twist/Pool Party bow which is fussy cut and popped with a dimensional.

  The final decoration to this party in a card are a few of the Tutti Frutti sequins.  I love the adhesive already on these sequins...makes it really easy for classes since there isn't any dry time for glue.

  The inside of the card just has the "happy birthday" sentiment with more of the bursts stamped around it.

  Remember you don't always have to have a large image stamp as the focal point to a card.  Let the sentiment be the star sometimes and use some smaller images as accents.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
