Hooray birthday card

Good morning!

I have this tutorial for you and it’s up on the Papermilldirect blog today.

I love using animals on my cards and of course I added some sparkle. 

For this card you will need:

You will also need:

  • Animal stamps
  • Oval die
  • Pattern paper
  • Hooray die
  • White embossing powder
  • Heat gun
  • Twine
  • Copic markers or any choice of colouring medium


To make my card base I used a piece of White Card Super Smooth 300gsm which I cut down, scored and folded in half. I also trimmed down an extra front panel using White Card Super Smooth 300gsm, which I used to cut a scalloped oval.

I then added some pattered paper to the back of my front panel so that this will show through the window. I adhered this onto my card front using some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

I then stamped my animal images onto some White Card Super Smooth 300gsm and coloured them in using copic markers. I then cut all the animals out and placed them along the window using some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

After this I heat embossed my sentiment onto some Black Plain Card 250gsm and trimmed this before placing along the bottom of the animals.

For the hooray die I used some Green Grass Lustre Print Card 300gsm and adhered this down using some Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml.

To finish off the card I added some twine to the top.

Have a great weekend!
