My little pokey friend on today's card qualifies him for the Paper Players Challenge #64 which was a clean and simple card featuring a plant or an animal and the Hand Stamped Sentiments Technique Challenge #85 using embossing. I just hope he makes it to the party before the next birthday.
The base is So Saffron textured card stock. A piece of
Just Add Cake designer paper was matted with Poppy Parade card stock. I
added Blushing Bride ribbon and attached this layer to the card front.
The turtle from the Turtle & Co. stamp set was heat
embossed on vellum card stock using VersaMark and black embossing powder. I then colored him on the reverse side with Garden Green, Wild Wasabi, Chocolate Chip and Baja Breeze markers. I cut him out with Paper Snips and attached him to a piece of Whisper White card stock. The presents and hat from the same stamp set were stamped with Basic Black ink on a piece of Whisper White card stock and colored in with Baja Breeze,
Blushing Bride, So Saffron, Poppy Parade and Wild Wasabi markers. I cut them both out and attached them to the image layer, using dimensionals for the presents. Poppy Parade card stock was used to mat the image layer. A So Saffron brad was added to the top of the party hat and the whole layer added to the card front with dimensionals. I inked up the sentiment from the Happiest Birthday Wishes stamp set with Baja Breeze, Blushing Bride, Wild Wasabi, So Saffron and Poppy Parade markers and stamped it on a piece of Whisper White card stock. This was punched out with the Decorative Label Punch. I reinserted the sentiment in the punch and punched again so it would be smaller. I trimmed off each side and matted it with a piece of Poppy Parade punched with the same punch. Two So Saffron brads were added and this was attached over the ribbon with dimensionals. Now he's ready to party. I hope your day is sunny like it is here (at least for this minute it is).
