The Card Design also features the Chalk Talk Die, 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon and Designer Series Paper Stacks. Colour wise, Wild Wasabi has been coordinated with Perfect Plum, Blushing Bride has been coordinated with Early Espresso and Basic Gray has been coordinated with Calypso Coral.

My project for the hop is Pop Up Birthday Gift Card made with the Stampin' Up! Zoo Babies and Banner Greetings Hostess stamp sets and featuring Designer Series Paper from Birthday Basics. How bright and fun does this card look? This card design can be suited to a boy or girl across many age groups.
When you open the Birthday Card, you're presented (no pun intended) with a nice surprise - pop up birthday presents with a bow on top.
Building a vertical stack of animals is a clever way to show case the different Zoo Babies images on one card. I've used stamp pads that coordinates with the Birthday Basics DSP.
The 'happy birthday' banner includes 3 Bermuda Bay Candy Dots and has been raised with dimensionals.
I'm giving away a Birthday Basic DSP Sampler Pack including all the goodies in the photo immediately below, including 7 x A5 sheets of cardstock, 6 x 6"x6" Birthday Basic DSP and 50cm each of Bermuda Bay 1/8” Taffeta Ribbon, Basic Gray 5/8” Satin

Stampin' Up! Supplies (click on the products to view them in my 24/7 Online Store):
It creates totally customisable envelopes in up to 66 different sizes (not to mention a million different colour and pattern options depending on the paper you want to use). Even tried and true envelope sizes will only take you moments to create! It's super easy to use; It looks intimidating at first glance, but when you see that all you have to do is measure for the first punch and from there you just turn and score you'll go crazy (in a good way). It's small and lightweight; this makes it easy for you to store and pull or bring to a friends place to show off you new cool tool! It even has a clever scoring tool as well as a punch that lets you create rounded corners on your envelopes. It's easy to keep it all together; the stylus storage compartment and two punches are designed into the tool so you don't have a bunch of little pieces to keep track of (even the instructions are printed right on the tool so you won't lose them!). The price is terrific--especially for a tool that does so much!
