Happy Birthday!

Hello and welcome back to my blog. Cannot believe we are already in the month of March! Where did February go? Time is flying a tad too fast for my liking. Anyway, I have a birthday card to share today. My most used cards are birthday cards. I make lots of them and still run short of it. Here is a colourful one using Simon Says Stamp’s Cosmos background stamp set.

here is how I made this card:

  1. I stamped the Simon Says Stamp Cosmos background stamp on fog cardstock panel using MISTI and Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink.
  2. I coloured the flowers using PolyChromos pencils. These are from Faber Castell. I chose to do rainbow colours because I love rainbows.
  3. I went over the outline of the images with black colour polychromos pencil. Yes I went over the details as well. I am crazy sometimes lol!
  4. For the shadow effect, I outlined the image using grey pencil as well. Takes a bit of time outlining the images. Yes I am mad! lol!
  5. I die cut this panel using the largest of Simon Says Stamp Postage Stamp Edge die.
  6. Then I added white details on the centre of the flowers using Sakura white gelly roll pen.
  7. For the sentiment I white heat embossed the bigger and smaller sentiments from Stained Glass Love stamp set on black cardstock and die cut the bigger sentiment using the coordinating die. The smaller sentiment, I just trimmed.
  8. I adhered the background panel on a white card base and the sentiments on the centre of the background panel using foam adhesives.
  9. Moonshine Confetti to embellish the card.
