Whoo's Birthday ????

Hello Ai Fans !!!
Today I decided to make a birthday card and tag for the present using the Whoots set called Birthday Whoot sku # 4125. I have wanted this set from the first time I laid eyes on it and today I was able to get it out and play , I had so much fun that I could not stop at just a card , I went ahead and made a matching tag for the present too.

to make the card a chose an 5.5 " by 5.5" card base  in a pale sky blue , I then added stitching in brown sharpie to outer most edge , I then chose to use some designer paper that had presents on it Momenta Let's Party paper stack
I cut it at 5 1/4" by 5 1/4"  , I glued this to the top of card
next I stamped the Whoot on SU Natural Ivory paper and colored with copic markers , I then created clouds around him using a new product I found at my local scrapbook store PanPastel , its an amazing chalk , the color used is Phthalo Blue Tint 560.8 then to apply it I used a brushstix , it has a firm foam tip .
next I cut him out with a new Sizzix set I just  bought called Fancy Labels
I cut him out and then added him to the inside of the card , I wanted to make a window on the front so  I place some painters tape on the die and flipped it cut side up over the image and then when i close my card it will stick to the front where the window needs to cut , now run it thru the Big Shot , tah-dah , you now have a window placed perfectly .
I added some goggle eyes to the Whoot and with a white gel pen added stitching around the window on the front , I also added bakers twine bows to the presents and used my startdust shimmer pen to add sparkle to the stripes on the presents( pics don't pick this up so well ) then I stamped Happy Birthday  sku # E3578

I added stitching in SU Island Indigo around the whoot , I added balloons and bakers twine strings , the Sentiment I used inside was the Birthday Whoots set SKU # 4125
Next I made a matching tag to go on the present  , the tag base is a manila shipping label tag
also from same Birthday Whoots set SKU # 4125 , I added a green glitter tulle bow
Supplies : Birthday Whoots set SKU# 4125 , Happy Birthday sku # E3578 , copic markers , PanPastel chalk in Blue ,Sizzix Fancy Labels die , bakers twine ,white gel pen ,SU Island Indigo marker ,brown fine sharpie,Stardust glitter pen, goggle eyes
