Today, for my AALL & Create guest DT post I have made a birthday card.
First I heatembossed this stamp in three different places. I did make sure there weren't any straight edges by brushing away some of the embossing powder. After I melted the powder with my heat tool I dunked the card into Distress Oxide ink. I used my new Kitsch Flamingo. It is a really pretty pink.
Next I stamped the images for my focal image. I wanted the dog to hold a flower instead of the umbrella which is easy to do.
I coloured the flower and the dog with my Copic Markers and cut them out.
Next I stamped the background randomly, using the same oval stamp, some circles and some numbers. I used the same pink Distress Oxide Kitsch Flaming and a grey and black Versafine Clair to stamp. I also rubbed the black ink pad along some of the edges to frame the card.
Next I added a strip of torn washi tape to stand the dog on.
I glued the dog with his flower on the card and then used one word of each stamp set in the picture to form the sentiment 'happy birthday'. Lastly I glued the whole card panel onto a card blank.
I think it turned out cute!
