It's finally Friday and that means we're almost officially done with the work week! 8 more hours to go! Woo-hoo! One thing I love most about my job is having the weekend off to do whatever I want! I plan to craft, hang out with a few friends and try my hands again at baking some macaroons. Last time, the macaroons didn't go so well, so hopefully (and fingers crossed) that this time it'll turn out better!
Today, I have yet another birthday card to share. This time I used Newton's Nook Designs Newton's Birthday Bash set to create the cute card above. This set is so much fun! I love coloring the fun images!
I started by stamping and coloring the image with Copic Markers. I wanted it to be a one layer panel, but I messed up when I stamped the sentiments. So I had to fussy cut the image out and adhered it to another white cardstock. I stamped the sentiment the second time and it came out perfectly. I added some shadows underneath the kraft bag. My husband thinks its pee stain. Lol! Whether it looks like pee stain or not, I am keeping it the way it is! Too much work and love goes into this card already. :)
The focal panel was die-cut using Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangles Stackable and then die-cut again using Mama Elephant Landscape Trio dies. This creates the wavy border. I layered the focal panel on top of another stitched rectangle and adhered that to a larger stitched chevron rectangle die-cut. I thought it be fun to add a scallop rectangle in with the layers and so I die-cut a piece of vellum using Mama Elephant Femme Frames dies and adhered both pieces onto the white card base. I then finished the card by scattering some sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
