Ap-parrot-ly It's Your Birthday

Hi Crafty Friends,

Welcome to our Paper Pros challenge for January 2018, we are excited to be back this year with our challenges. This month our challenge is again hosted by Me! The theme this month is .... Tag You're It which gives us all the opportunity to play with Karen Burniston's Tag Book Pop-up die set.

I have again decided to use the inner part of the Tag Book Pop-up die set to create a Tag Card Pop-up.

To decorate my card I have used a stamp set from Your Next Stamp which I received for Christmas. I love these cute parrots and the fun sentiments that come with the set.

Here is a look at my card when it is lying open flat on the desk, so you can see the folds of the pop-up part of this tag book pop-up a little easier.

I kept the front of the card fairly simple, die cutting a Wonky Stitched Rectangle for the white rectangle. I stamped the "happy" from Honey Bee Stamps Happiness stamp set in black ink and then stamped the "Birthday To You" onto pink cardstock and embossed in white.

I added the same two parrots that I used on the inside on the corners of my rectangle.

Finally I added Nuvo Jewel Drops in various colors to the white rectangle.

You can see what the other "Paper Pros" created for this challenge on their blogs:
