Hello again! I am thrilled to be posting today as a guest designer (GD) at AAA Birthday for their Game #24 - A Shaped Card.
I bought the Big Pickup Tailgate stamp, coordinating dies and alphabet dies from Honey Bee Stamps (HBS), but never got around to using them yet. So with this fun theme, I took the opportunity to do just that and created a birthday card for my nephew’s birthday last month.
All images were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on X-Press It cardstock, coloured in with Copic markers and Polychromos pencils, then die cut out with their matching dies. The puppy is from Hello Bluebird (HB) Snowball Fight winter set. The hat/balloons are from a retired set.
A white landscape top folding card base was partial die cut with the Big Pickup Tailgate die, ensuring the cutting edge extended past the fold. The letters were die cut twice from black cardstock and once from silver foil paper then stacked for dimension. The HB2U license plate was black heat embossed on a white scrap, then die cut out. Assembled the card, then added Crystal Glaze on the balloons and rear tail lights for some shine and dimension to finish.
Initially, I was planning to pack the truck with partying critters and accessories, but with two nieces also having birthdays in March, I spread them out to create two more custom cards for them.
Before I go, I would like to thank Jane and the AAA Birthday team for having me guest for this challenge. Are you ready to join in the fun? To see more inspirations from the designers, check out the challenge post HERE. Thank you for dropping by.
