a card that would be easy to mail. I have another grand nephew who
will be three in August, so I decided to make a second card with the same details. I like the idea that I have a head start on a late summer birthday!!
* I started by stamping Balloon Trevor (C. C. Designs), colouring with copic
markers and then fussy cutting. Trevor's shirt was also stamped onto
patterned paper and fussy cut so I could paper piece it.
* The balloon portion was stamped 3 more times, coloured with a variety
of copic markers (greens, blues, reds, yellows) and fussy cut.* Before positioning the balloons and Trevor, I embossed the Kraft card
front with the Wood grain Impression Plate. The sentiment (Say It In Style -
Close To My Heart) and suffix (th) were also stamped onto the card front,
then a Pure Poppy number die cut was added.
* The picket fence was cut from polka dot paper; the grass border die
(My Favorite Things) was cut, then added to the bottom of the card.
Small brass adhesive pearls accent each of the pickets on the fence.
* A rectangle of Rustic White card stock was added to the inside of the
card and then stamped with several sentiments. (Stylish Sentiments: Birthday;
Mega Mixed Messages; Fillable Frames #7) using Pure Poppy, Blueberry Sky
and Rich Cocoa inks. The stitching line (Sew Simple Borders) around
the edge was added with blue ink.
Happy Birthday - Take 2!!
dot paper was stamped with Background Basics: Woodgrain before cutting
the picket fence.
A green copic marker was used on the grass to add some texture border.
The inside uses stamps and dies from Heart-2-Heart #5.
