Today is the day to start creating a stash of birthday cards and I decided to go big! The Biggest Birthday Ever seemed like a fun place to start.
When I saw the birthday party hat created with this set at On Stage, I knew that I wanted to make one. The bottom of the ice cream cone makes a perfect party hat when turned over. The best part is that this set has matching Wish Big Framelit Dies.
The vibrant colors in one of the patterns found in the Festive Birthday DSP seemed perfect for my birthday hat, Using the framelit, I cut 2 party hats & trim for the bottom of the hat. Attach 1 party hat to the card & fold the other hat in half & attach to the 1st party hat. Only apply a thin strip of glue in the middle of the hat .
Melon Mambo Thick Baker's Twine makes it easy to create a matching tassel. It is slipped under the party hat flower topper which is adorned with a Crushed Curry Enamel Shape. The base of my card is Bermuda Bay which is difficult to photograph because it always looks more blue.
More fun for the inside of the card with the ice cream cone. Stamping & cutting with the matching thinlit dies makes it so easy to create a fun cone for the inside of my card. The birthday banner & sentiments can be found in the Birthday Banners Stamp Set & the coordinating Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies. For a closer look at the sentiment, check out the picture below.
