Hi Crafty Friends,
Recently a friend asked me if I would make a birthday card for her to send to her sister, who has a birthday coming up next month. My friend mentioned that her sister enjoyed singing, violin & painting ... so this is what I came up with.
For the front of the card I CASED a card I made a couple of years ago, just changing up the colors.
I added Distress Oxide inks in Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry, Abandoned Coral and Wilted Violet to a white cardstock panel. I then splattered white & gold paint over the background. I did cut the panel using a square die from the Elizabeth Craft Designs Dashing Squares die set.
I die cut the the square panel & a black card panel using MFT Stamps Happy Birthday Block die and paper pieced the black letters into the holes in the distress oxide panel.
For the bottom section of the card I stamped Hero Arts Candy Stripe Bold Print Background stamp onto a piece of white cardstock using black ink. I then adhere this to the base of a top folded black card.
I adhered the Happy Birthday Block panel to the top of the card.
To decorate my card I stamped the critters from the Lawn Fawn Critter Concert Clear Stamp set and added them to my card.
I stamped a sentiment included in the stamp set onto a strip of white cardstock and added it to the sentiment panel.
To finish off the front of the cards I added music notes which are from Lawn Fawn's Little Music Notes die set.
For the inside of the card, I used the left over striped background to the top and bottom edges of the card.
I created an Explosion Pop-up using Karen Burniston's Explosion Pop-up die set.
I added the "Time To Celebrate!" sentiment from The Stamping Village's Happy Birthday stamp set to a rectangle panel. I die cut the "84" from Distress Oxide background and adhered them to the top of the rectangle panel.
I added the owl playing the violin, to the top pop-up panel.
I added a blank oval panel to the base of the card, so that there was a place to add a hand written greeting.
