Put Your Party Pants On

Time to make some more Birthday Cards for #imbringingbirthdaysback!  

Perfect party paper is "It's My Party" Designer Series Paper Stack (140552) from the Occasions Catalog on page 5.


  • Whisper White Thick Cardstock - 11" x 4 1/4" scored and folded at 5 1/2"
  • It's My Party DSP - 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Whisper White Cardstock (strip) 4" x 1 1/2"
  • Whisper White Cardstock (sentiment) 2 3/4" x 2 1/2"
  • Melon Mambo (or Crushed Curry) 3" x 2 3/4"
  • Stamps:  Big News (wood mount - 134015 / clear mount - 134018) / Party Pants (FREE with Sale-a-bration)
  • Mint Macaron / Crushed Curry (balloons)
  • Balloon Bouquet Punch (140810 - photopolymer)
  • Ink - Memento Black (132708)

When I decided to turn the card vertically instead of horizontally, I found that the "it's your birthday" sentiment I had pre-made wouldn't fit, so I put them inside instead and used "Party Pants" on the outside with a longer strip instead.  I honestly just used scraps, so I don't have any measurements for you on those.  I knew I wanted it bigger than the small square of the little stamp, so I picked up some scraps and put them together! 

Ta Da! 

I made one with a banner cut at the end and the other with solid ends.

Thank you for looking in today!  Happy Monday!  ~ Donna 


  1. Boy, what fun choices, banner end or straight, party pants on the front or in the inside! Each are great and I really don't think one is better than the other. Is that fence setting or what? I love the candy dots or enamel dots - whatever they are called - they just add to the playfulness. Great job as always!

    1. You know, I almost forgot the enamel / candy dots! I had them out and they got lost on the table. I kept thinking, something was missing and found them. They really did make a difference! Fence sitting works. That means you like them ALL! :)
