Happy Birthday FUN!

Today's card is just a fun punchy happy birthday card using several SU punches.  I've seen many similar cards like this on the internet, blogs and I think there's even one in the SU catty.  So I had to try my hand at it.  The two end hats are punched out of Summer Smooches DSP (that is really a GREAT party pattern) with the Petite Pennant Builder punch, and the middle one is stamped with Pacific Point and the Pennant Parade set.  Instead of having them hanging down like a pennant, you just flip them up the other way and Voila' - party hats!
We used the Scallop Square punch to make the red bottoms of the end hats.  I just inserted the Real Red cardstock just far enough into the square to get that little scallopy border trim.  The perfect fluffy bottom for the party hats.
Then we stamped a bunch of those little starry images in red and blue and punched them with the tiny scallop circle punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack.  I found adhering them with glue dots worked best.  Finally we stamped a simple 'happy birthday' and punched it out with the ticket punch, added a gem to the top of the center hat and layered it all.  Wouldn't that be fun to receive on your special day!  Bye for now!  ~Maureen
