To begin, I die cut a rectangle from Bristol Smooth cardstock. I ink blended my background using Worn Lipstick and Tattered Rose Distress Oxides. I splattered some clean water and thinned Worn Lipstick ink onto my background with a paintbrush, and set aside to dry.
Next, I cut a grassy border from white cardstock using the Grassy Knoll Die. I lightly inked the bottom edge with Mowed Grass DO, and attached to the bottom of my inked background.
I stamped the images from the Just Sayin’ Stamp set onto Bristol smooth cardstock and colored with Copic markers in the following colors:
Bear: E30, E31, E34, R30, R00, R20 Bunny: E50, E51, E53, R30, R20 Pig: R000, R00, R30, R20, N2, N4 Balloons: Y32, Y35 (yellow), R00, R30, R20 (pink), B000, B00, B02 (blue).
Next, I added highlights to my colored images and stamped the words onto the signs and cut out with the Just Sayin’ Die.
I cut the Happy Birthday title from white cardstock three times using the Happy Birthday Words Die. I stacked the three layers on top of each other for some dimension, and attached to my card.
Finally, I arranged the sweet critters and balloons onto my card, and adhered using 3D foam squares. The final touch was to add a few light pink jewels for a little sparkle and attach to an A2 card base.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
