Happy Belated Birthday

In an attempt to use more scraps and try something new, I created this belated birthday card.

I had precolored this Lawn Fawn sloth (from Hang in There) with copics for The Daily Marker 30 day coloring challenge in June. And so I set out to use some other supplies I already had, as opposed to cutting into a new sheet of cardstock...and out came the scrapbox.

I'm pretty sure these papers are from a Paper Studio Valentine's paper pad, but I thought they coordinated pretty well.

I cut down the scraps into an A2 card panel and two rectangles using my paper trimmer. I tried to do something different with my layout by turning the paper at an angle instead of having it straight like I usually do.

I glued down the rectangles with Tombow Mono liquid glue and then tried to work out the best way to situate the sloth and sentiment.

After I had attached the image, the card seemed a little too "heavy" on the right so I added some sparkly stars to the opposite side to even it out.

I stamped the sentiment with Versafine black ink under the image and attached the card panel to a premade card base with my ATG gun.

I have to admit this card wasn't my favorite, but the more I look at it, the more I like it. With the pink and the rainbow colors, I'm getting some Lisa Frank vibes and its really growing on me. :)

Thanks for stopping by!
