Happy 30th Birthday

My nephew turned 30 this year, so I thought I’d make him a heartfelt card to tease him about getting a year older.

30 BD Front 30 BD Inside

To make the card, I used blue cardstock, green cardstock cut with Martha Stewart Icicle punch, black cardstock  for wording, DCWV Animal Prints, scraps of yellow, brown, flesh coloured cardstock, Spectrum Markers and PrismaColor Premier Pencils with Blending Solution. Rounded corner punch.

The boy and girl were both cut with my Cricut using Paper Doll Dressup. 3″ x 2.25″, accessories to match. Wording – Jasmine Font.

For the boys face I used Peachy Keen Stamp face from PK-1200 The Moodies Face Assortment 3/4″  Size

For the girls face I used Peachy Keen Stamp face from PK-1410 Christmas in July Face Assortment 3/4″ Size

I used pink chalk for their cheeks, blue and green marker for their eyes and Inkssentials for their eyes.

Bronze pearls for the girl’s necklace.

For the inside I stamped the little dog  and sentiment with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink using PK-1334 Howling Puppy stamps.

I then coloured it with Spectrum GB3 and then used Prisma Coloured Pencils PC943 and PC945 for shading.

Kerchief – Spectrum IBI, Prisma Coloured Pencils PC902, PC903, PC904 for shading.

Mouth – Copic R37, R39.

Rug – Spectrum GT2 ad GT3.

Lastly, I put a shadow around the whole puppy with Spectrum IG1.

Hope you like it!
