This is a card that I made for my husband’s god daughter.

Size: Horizontal top fold A2 card
Extra Details: I began with a card base made from water color paper. I stamped and colored the card front first. I used masking to hide the mouse behind the box. I traced a circle die to create the white highlight around the images. I used a water brush and Crayola Fine Line markers to color everything in. I used a grey ink to add the confetti to the colorful rays.
While the card front was drying I stamped and die cut all of the images for the inside of the card. I used the same markers and water brush to color everything in.
While those were drying, I die cut the stitched hillside pop up and another plain stitched hillside from a few shades of green card stock. I also die cut “celebrate” from holographic paper and plain card stock so I could layer them. I also die cut the posts from water color paper and colored them brown.
Next, I decorated the inside of the card. I used a puffy cloud die to trace with the blue marker. I used a water brush to move the color around and create a soft cloudy sky. Once the clouds were dry, I added the stamped confetti. I used the same markers to color them in.
Once the card base was dry, I began assembling the card. I adhered the green hills first. Then, I added the animals and balloons. The confetti was the last thing I adhered. I used glue dots, double sided tape, and liquid glue to adhere everything.
