Enjoy Your Special Day!


Welcome Back Dreamerland Craft Fans!

Today, I’m sharing a birthday card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called A Restful Afternoon – D19014 for the main image. For the sentiments I used a combination of Birthday 07 – DS17058 and Birthday 08 – DS17059. These 2 friends are sharing a nice peaceful afternoon in the sun just relaxing. What a wonderful way to spend a gorgeous day in the sun.

 

To make this card I used a base card of 4.25″ x 5.5″. I die cut the rectangle using Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my Cuttlebug and Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set. Then I stamped the image using Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and my MISTI. The grass border was stamped with Memento – New Sprout. I coloured in the image and background with Copic markers.

For the background paper, I used Recollections – Petite Floral and green cardstock. I stamped the sentiments using Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and my MISTI. I used Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder and then heat embossed the powder with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. Next, I edged around all of the background pieces with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mowed Lawn. I layered the image directly onto the green cardstock. Then, I popped up the image with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and added a few Kraftin’ Kimmie – Springy Dots.
