Under the Big Top Birthday

 What could be more fun than having a circus birthday card?! This one features the ringmaster colored with copics. This is from the super fun, under the big top, stamp set which is 10% off during the month of May. The card colors are from the May Spotlight pack which is 20 sheets of cardstock, 4 sheets each of five colors. This month's pack includes saffron, onyx, apple, cherry and bermuda. I added a little strip of onyx chevron because it just seemed to want to be a part of the card. I cut the card base to 3-3/4 X 11 and scored and folded it at 5-1/2". The tickets were cut out by hand but there is a ticket die that would have worked great too. I just don't have it yet. :) The onyx buttons are decorated with red twinkle stickers to add a little more color and whimsy to the card.

Since it's a circus card, you might as well have fun with the inside too. (oops - my inside is not quite straight...oops!). The saffron pieces are from what was cut off of the side of the 4-1/4" card to 3-3/4" width.

All supplies including the May spotlight special stamps (which are at the top of the stamp section in the webstore) are available online at

Thanks for popping by and have a wonderfully creative day!!
