Aitor’s Birthday Card

Hi!!

I’m showing you today the birthday card I made for my boyfriend, whose name is Aitor.  I wanted to make something special for him, so I made a pop-up card. I used MFT “Strike up the band” stamp set designed by Birdie Brown. How cute are these bunnies? And I love the sentiments in the stamp set!

I stamped all the bunnies on Bristol paper with VersaFine onyx black ink and colored everything using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, and a gold gel pen for some details. Then I fussy cut all the images. I kept the front panel very simple using Lawn Fawn “Perfectly plaid christmas” paper and a stripe of white cardstock die cut using Lawn Fawn “Stitched borders” dies. I stamped the sentiment with Memento lady bug ink and adhered the little drummer with foam tape.

For the inside of the card I used blue cardstock for the sky, and then I die cut two pieces of green cardstock using Lawn Fawn “Stitched hillside borders” dies. I don’t have any pop-up dies, so I made the pop-up mechanism using a craft knife on the back hillside cardstock. Then I adhered the front hill cardstock to those pop-up elements and glued the bunnies. Finally I stamped the sentiment from Mama Elephant “Make a wish” stamp set with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it using WOW clear hologram sparkle embossing powder.

I really like how this card turned out. To be honest, this was my second attempt to make the pop-up mechanism, but I wanted to check if I needed the pop-up dies or if I could made this kind of card without them.

I hope you like this card! Have a nice day!!

Hola!

Today I have a card using The Greeting Farm Magical Friends stamp set. I really love these critters!! They’re soooo cute!!

When I got this stamp set I knew I wanted to make this card. I stamped the unicorn with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with ShinHan Touch Twin brush markers and Tiger alcohol markers. For his hair I also used some Polychromos pencils and Wink of Stella. Then I added Glossy Accents to his little horn.

For the background I used MFT Sun Ray stencil with Fossilized Amber Distress Ink. Then I stamped a lot of little stars with VersaMark ink and heat embossed them using Ranger Enchanted Gold embossing powder, the same I used for the word “SHINE” of the sentiment. The first part of the sentiment is heat embossed with Ranger White super fine detail embossing powder. I’m really happy with how this card turn out. I hope you like it!!!
