Build a Birthday

The star of our card today is the new Build a Birthday photopolymer stamp set from the 2015-16 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog – just released this month!  You’re going to love all of the possibilities with this terrific set, and we card makers make a lot of birthday cards!


  • You’ve probably seen lots of fun ideas coordinating the Build a Birthday stamp set with the Cherry on Top Designer Paper and Washi Tape.  While I absolutely love this pairing, I wanted to show you some different colors with my card.  I actually still chose colors from one of our beautiful new designer papers called Schoolhouse, using Daffodil Delight, Pool Party and Tangerine Tango.  But what makes this card really special is the addition of all of the silver elements.
  • I’ve used the little flower in the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack to add a row of flowers to the top of the cake, punching out Silver Foil Paper.  A sweet little Silver Ribbon bow also accents the cake.  “Birthday wishes” is heat embossed using Silver Embossing Powder.  There’s a frame around the main image using Silver Foil Paper.  AND the envelope is lined using Fancy Foil Vellum run through the Big Shot with the Envelope Liner Framelit.  That’s a lot of silver!  This card would also be perfect for a wedding shower, an anniversary or a retirement.

  • Don’t forget your Glue Dots.  They’re invaluable for holding on the flowers as well as the bow.
  • The final accent are three Tangerine Tango Candy Dots from the Brights Candy Dots packet accenting the flowers.
