Stinkin' Cute Birthday for Emily

I used this Lawn Fawn Stinkin' Cute stamp and die 
for this birthday card earlier this year. Its such a 
cute image when paired with flowers. 
I decided to try a rainbow effect for the background 
on this card for my grand niece who turns 4 this month.
I used the Hexagon Cover Plate to impress the 
outline design onto the front of a Soft Stone card base. 
After cutting and stamping various hexagons from 
white card stock I was able to position them onto the 
front of the card base using the raised areas as a guide.

Rainbow Colours from bottom to top:
New Leaf, Limeade Ice, 
Bright Buttercup, Summer Sunrise, 
Lovely Lady, Sweet Blush, 
Aqua Mist.
Hibiscus Burst was used for happy and number 4.

A strip of vellum with a notched bottom was stamped 
with BIRTHDAY (Happy Hexagons), then heat embossed 
with Stampin' Up Melon Mumbo Embossing Powder. 
The top of the vellum tag was die cut with 
Stitching Lines dies, then aqua embroidery floss 
was threaded through the holes and finished with a bow. 
This allowed me to place a strip of Scor-Tape below 
the threaded area and attach it to the card front.

Polka Dot Alphabet stamps and dies were used to 
make the word happy. Several layers were 
die cut a stacked to create added dimension.

The main circular panel was created by 
stamping flowers and grass (Garden Variety) 
onto a circle of white card stock, then added to a 
Bright Buttercup circle cut with Inverted Scallops die. 
The skunk was die cut, stamped and coloured with 
copic markers before adding it to the front circle. 
The number 4 was die cut and stamped with 
Polka Dot Numbers using Hibiscus Burst ink.

The inside was finished with a flowers, grass 
and a sentiment from Garden Variety.
