Hello Everyone, Mirella here again. Greetings from Spain! Well… as I am writing this, I am still in Ireland, but – providing all goes well – I should be on the sunny and warm Spanish coast the day this post goes live!
Today, I have a fun birthday card to share with you. Surprisingly, there are no pinks or purples on it (and no rainbow, I must be unwell!), as I was hoping that it could be a card for a boy, but – honestly – it would work for everyone, don’t you think? It’s much harder to gift a pinky card to a boy than it is a blue one to a girl, LOL!
Isn’t is fun and sweet? Honestly speaking, I didn’t have an exact plan as I started making this card, but I am really happy with how it turned out.
I started by die-cutting a panel of cardstock with the Frame and Fold die set, and I used the heart die in the same set to cut out the three “windows”. I then ink blended the panel with Distress Oxide Inks, using my Blending Buddy and sprinkled some water on the panel, for additional interest.
The yellow guy got a green eye – he looks so cool with it! I also added some details with my black Glaze Pen and white Gel Pen.
I really love how the red monster turned out – the colours are so vivid. I added some details to this little guy also, and he additionally has a stitched heart on his belly – that’s done with a die from the same Frame and Fold set.
Finally, my little green monster. His colouring turned out so cute that I didn’t think he needed much more, but – for consistency – he got some black and white detailing, too.
For the sentiment, I used “Happy Birthday” from a sadly discontinued set (Decorate a cake), the “My sweet” bit comes from Hello Sweet Friend (on sale right now), and the “Monster” is from my recently favourite Sending Hugs die set.
And here you have it – I tucked the monsters behind the heart openings, adhered the whole panel to a white card base, and – as a final touch – added a few red heart embellishments here and there, and some dots with a sparkly gel pen.
I hope you enjoyed today’s project and post.
