This card was just fun to make! I had a left over pop up card base that I wanted to use and an idea for a super cool birthday card. I LOVE the way this one turned out.

Size: Horizontal top fold A2 card
Extra Details: I started with the left over card base. It was made from light blue card stock. I stamped the clouds in white pigment ink. I added a dark green tree border that also had pop up tabs to the inside of the card base. Lastly, I adhered the grassy border piece to the pop up tabs and the card base was complete.
For this card, I stamped and colored a lot of images from Lawn Fawn’s Critters From the Past set. The banners are from Simon Says Stamp’s Cuddly Critter Accessories. I used colored pencils to color everything. I added some detail with a white gel pen. Once all the images were colored, I carefully cut them out on the stamped lines. After cutting, I used a black marker to paint the edges of all of the images (Yes, even the tiny flowers, party hats, and rocks).
I used glue dots to adhere all of the larger images. I hung the banners on a piece of thin white twine I had in my stash. I wrapped the twine around the trees and a glue dot to hold them in place. I backed the banners with some copy paper to keep the glue dots from sticking to the card base. I used liquid glue to adhere the tiniest images.
