Hello there! My youngest sister celebrated a big birthday this month (it was in covid-style so just her household) and one of my other sisters asked me to make a card for her. I wanted to make a fun interactive card to mark this special milestone, but my health challenges continue, so I needed to keep it simple and made a slimline card using the colour palette from the February Butterfly Reflections, Ink mood board.
Wednesday, February 24, 2021
The largest die in the Slim Basics Rectangle Layers die set from Memory Box (MB) was used to die cut from Bristol paper a slimline panel measuring 3.6”x8.6”. Using a mini blending tool, applied Pinkalicious dye ink from Altenew (ALT) over a new unused Rolling Clouds stencil from My Favorite Things (MFT) to create the pretty pink sky. Splattered it with ALT Razzleberry dye ink and white gouache paint for some texture. Next, took the new unused MFT Big Birthday Wishes die and partial die cut from the panel to split the sentiment to the top and at the bottom.
The elephant from Mama Elephant (ME) Fly With Me was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on X-Press It cardstock, coloured in with Copic alcohol markers (C00, C1, C3, C5, R32, R30) and die cut out with the matching die. The ballon (retired) was die cut from a Stampin’ Up! (SU!) Melon Mambo embossed polka dotted scrap in my stash. The MFT Impact Numbers and “TH” (retired) were die cut from SU! Smoky Slate cardstock and Bristol paper, then offset for a shadow effect. Added clear glitter to them for some shimmer. Die cut the sentiment from black cardstock to be inlaid and assembled the card onto a white 3.75”x8.75” card base to finish.
Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day!
