Happy Birthday Papa John!

My father in law's birthday is on Tuesday so we asked him and hubby's mom over for dinner. We're smoking a beef brisket and I can't wait! So I wanted to make Papa a card that was fun and bright. We have been having some grey weather for weeks now and I'm hoping it brightens up his day just a bit! I used colors from the brights collection and will be filming and uploading a tutorial on this tonight. But for now here is a camera shot and the tools and materials I used to make it! Hope you enjoy!





I used a piece of Whisper White card stock cut to 11x4 1/4" and folded it in half.
Marina mist card stock cut to 3x3" and then rounded the opposite corners.
Whisper White card stock cut to 2 1/2x2 1/2", I stamped first in Real Red classic ink with the happy birthday sentiment from the Delightful dozen stamp set, then I rounded the corners in the same way.
I attached it to the Marina Mist with some Stampin' dimensional and then attached the whole piece to the bottom of the card front with some Snail adhesive.
I used a piece of the polka dot patterned Pumpkin Pie DSP (say that ten times fast) cut to 4x2 and attached it to the top of the card with some Snail adhesive.
I took pieces of Real Red, Marina Mist and Daffodil Delight card stock and DSP and used the Petite Pennant punch to make three pennants with the solid colors on the top and designer paper on the bottom scallop.
Layered them with a dimensional and Snailed them to the Pumpkin Pie.
I used a piece of whisper White to stamp Wish Big from the Pennant Parade stamp set in Marina Mist ink and punched it out with a 3/4" circle punch and adhered it to the Marina Mist pennant.
I was going to leave it at that but thought the card could use just a bit more so I punched out a couple of stars (retired punch) out of some Daffodil Delight card stock and added them to the rounded corners of the sentiment.
I think he really enjoyed the card, we even had a bunch more snow tonight but it didn't stick. It was nice to look at though! I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I did making it!
