It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a birthday card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Party Girl – TDG034 for the image and Open Happy Birthday – G039 for the sentiment. This little girl loves to dance and celebrate! She is ready for a really nice party to share her birthday with all of her friends.
To make my card this week, I began with a card base of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cut and scored to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. I cut out the background to the same size using Bubbly Girls – Party – Yvonne Creations cardstock. This was applied directly to base card with double-sided tape. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Salvaged Patina was used to ink around all of the edges of the card.
The image and sentiment were both stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and coloured in with Copic Markers. Using my scissors, I fussy cut around both the image and sentiment. For the sentiment, I used a black marker to go around the edges to hide the white. Using Copic markers, I tried to match the background as best as I could for the coloured image to blend in. I applied U-Line double-sided tape to all of the pieces and popped them up onto the base card. Lastly, to finish it off, I added in 3 gumdrops from YNS Gumdrops – Pretty Peacock Matte Gumdrops.
