A birthday 'Woo hoo!'

No matter the time of year, I don't think I'm ever more than a week or two away from needing a birthday card for someone. (If it's October, I need two or three every time I turn around!) So I always love to find a new, fun stamp I can use for birthday cards. When Stampin' Up!® introduced their latest collection of single stamps, I knew I had to get the stamp called Woo Hoo!

Supplies (all Stampin' Up!):
Stamps: Woo Hoo!
Card stock: Basic Black, Whisper White, silver glimmer paper
Ink: Jet Black StazOn pad; markers: Blush Blossom, Marina Mist, Old Olive, Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Chocolate Chip, Early Espresso Accessories: Chevron embossing folder, rhinestones, Dimensionals

The most time-consuming part of this card was probably the coloring; otherwise it was a quick card to make. Because the focal image is pretty busy, I wanted to keep the rest of the layout clean and simple. I embossed the Basic Black card base with the Chevron embossing folder to add a little texture and then added a strip of silver glimmer paper near the bottom of the card. I adhered the finished image (I hand-cut around the frilly border) over the glimmer paper with Dimensionals, and for a final sparkly detail, I added one rhinestone on the bottom right corner of the focal image and three along the top left edge of the card base. And that's it!

Thanks for stopping by!
