Today, I am featuring this adorable birthday card created using YNS new releases "Let's Pawty" and the Bold Happy Birthday word die.
The "Lets Paw-ty" stamp set is my favorite. The fact that it has many adorable pet images makes it ideal for creating adorable cards that everyone would love. Accompanied by many accessories such as presents, cakes, balloons and flowers, the possibilities are just endless. You can mix and match to create so many different birthday cards with just one stamp set!!
To make this card, I started off by placing the smaller of the birthday word die onto a white card stock and partial cut the words upwards 95% of the way only and used x-acto knife to trim off the sides. Then, I stamped the images above the words using Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored using copic markers.
On a standard A2 size watercolour card stock, I used distress inks (milled lavender, spun sugar, abandon carol, squeezed lemonade, mowed lawn, salty ocean) to blend a rainbow background.
Both card stocks were die cut using YNS stitched rectangle die and adhered together using double sided tape and affixed onto a top folding horizontal card base.
Lastly, I added black glossy accents onto the eyes and nose to define the features and finished off by adding shimmer to the presents using clear wink of stella glitter pen.
Thank you all for stopping by. Don't forget to join the blog hop to have a chance to win amazing prizes. Hope you have fun hopping and get lucky this time !!
