I started with Crushed Curry cardstock for the cardbase and then took a piece of Tip Top Taupe cardstock and embossed it with the Big Shot and Confetti Embossing Folder. Have you seen the new Party Pop-Up Thinlits in the Occasions catalog? I love them and not just to make 3-D cards but it makes a fun focal point for a card that's super easy. I used a piece of It's My Party Designer Series Paper and ran it through the Big Shot with the Party Pop-Up Thinlit and then trimmed it down to remove the card connector pieces. To help the words pop up I added a piece of Mint Macaron cardstock behind the DSP piece.
I added a small "Happy Birthday" greeting using the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set and punched it out with the Word Window Punch. The final touch was to add a bow using the Melon Mambo Baker's Twine from the Baker's Twine Combo Pack (I used two pieces of twine for a double bow).
I love how easy the tools make this card but it really packs a punch, perfect to celebrate a special day!
