I realized this morning that I needed a birthday card for a sweet little two year old girl and I needed it in a few hours. This is the card that I made.
Size: Horizontal side fold 5×7 card
Extra Details: I started by stamping everything on the white panel. I used post it tape to mask off the birthday hats, balloons, and gifts to the feel of dimension on a flat panel. I used Simon Says Stamp Smoke ink to give everything a softer look. I stamped the sentiment in Simon Says Stamp Slate ink to help it stand out a bit. I colored everything in with colored pencils. I added a few details with my gold and silver gel pens. I noticed the lower left corner was a bit bare so I added some greenery.
Next I prepped my card base. I knew my card base would be much bigger than my panel so I did some tone on tone stamping on it. I also added a thin pink frame I had left over from another project. I had used the Stitched Border Dies to add detail to the pink paper.
I popped the white panel up on fun foam and adhered the frame around it.
Stamps Used: Lawn Fawn’s Fairy Friends, Year Two, Admit One and Beep Boop Birthday
Dies Used: Small Stitched Rectangles and Stitched Borders
Ink: Simon Says Stamp Smoke and Slate inks
Memento Dew Drop Inks in Cottage Ivy, Pear Tart and Rich Cocoa
Hope you enjoyed the card
