Hi, everyone! It’s Cassie here, and I’m back to share a birthday card with you today. This week is my birthday, and so I’m celebrating with this card. Also, on my Instagram page (@creativelycass) you’ll find a giveaway with the exclusive Sticky Friends stamp set. Head over there to enter!
But for today’s card, I’m combining some of my favorite Heffy Doodle products for a fun birthday card that would be perfect for just about anyone. 🙂 Let’s take a look!
I started this card by stamping out all the images from their various sets with some Copic friendly ink and coloring them in. I stamped the bunny and three carrots from Honey Bunny Boo, the present from Happy Snappy Crocs, the birthday cake from Elephant of Surprise, and finally, the speech bubble and sentiment from Whatcha Sayin’. I love mixing and matching these images and making the perfect scene with them! Once they were all colored with my Copics, I went in and added some shading and detail with my colored pencils. This is a trick I learned from Nina Marie, and I love the added texture it gives to the coloring! Then I die cut all the pieces out with the coordinating dies.
Next I created the ground and sky by die cutting a circle and stitched hillside. I used my Distress Oxide inks to ink blend some color onto those pieces and then splattered some clean water over them to get those awesome splotches. I also die cut a stitched circle border to go around my circle and hold focus in the center of my card. I colored it with a light blue Copic marked to fit my color scheme. The frame was popped up with some foam adhesive and the grass and sky were set inside of it.
All of the little pieces were then added to the scene. Some were adhered with two layers of foam tape, like the frame, and others were with just one to give some dimension. The carrots were supposed to be balloons, so I clustered them together and taped some silver thread to the back of them which was also taped behind the balloon to keep them tight. I thought carrot balloons would be perfect at a bunny’s birthday party! 🙂
I hope you liked the card for today! And don’t forget to check out my giveaway of the exclusive Sticky Friends stamp set on Instagram! There will be two lucky winners! I hope you’re all having a great week, and I’ll see you again next Tuesday!
