I have to tweak my little brother every year on his birthday. I know that the big Calypso Coral 62 is going to jump right off the page at him!! He'll say, "Yeah? Who? Not Me!"
Isn't this paper fun? It's from the new Designer Series Paper Stack called A Little Foxy. All grays, coral, and Pool Party in cheerful little patterns. This is a 6" x 6" stack and you get a lot of paper - 48 double sided sheets for $10. See it here.
I glued it to a piece of Basic Gray cardstock, then glued it to a Smoky Slate card base. I cropped the numbers out of Calypso Coral using the Large Numbers Framelits Dies. The Smoky Slate splatter is from Gorgeous Grunge and the Look Who's Turning is part of the Number of Years stamp set.
Inside, I trimmed out a little banner from the Foxy paper and glued it across the top. The martini glass and birthday candle are from an old favorite set called Making Spirits Bright. You can't really see it, but I used Wink of Stella inside the glass, which gives it a cool shine.
Then, for a little more fun...
I took a pinch of sequins from the June Paper Pumpkin kit and added them to the inside of his card. Won't he be surprised?!!!
Never heard of Paper Pumpkin? It is an all-inclusive craft kit that comes to you in the mail every month. Each month is a surprise. Often it will be for cards, sometimes it will be for other 3-D type crafts. It's always fun to see and to make. Check out the details on My Paper Pumpkin and give it a try!

If you would like to make my card, you can see the supplies I used down below. Measurements are very simple, 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", folded at 4 1/4". Layers are 5 1/4" x 4" and 5 1/8" x 3 7/8".
Until next time ~ Happy Stamping!
