I have wanted to make a card with this Sassy Club stamp set since the day I got it; and it just so happens that my brother in law is a huge fan of this little green guy! So I thought his birthday would be the perfect occasion to put this set to use.
Knowing his birthday was coming quick, I colored up the main images with Copic markers during the Daily Marker 30 day coloring challenge.
I used the karolina patterned paper from Lawn Fawn's 6x6 Spring Fling paper pad, cut down to 5 1/4" x 4" for the background. I then layered that onto an A2 sized black card stock panel.
With a stitched hillside border from Lawn Fawn, I die cut a border piece from some 110 lb. white Neenah card stock. I blended on some vintage photo distress oxide ink with a foam blending tool and trimmed the whole piece down to 4" wide.
I added the boarder piece to the spring fling panel and adhered the colored characters on top of that.
For the sentiment, I used a Tim Holtz alphanumeric thinlits die set to cut out the letters making up the "Your Birthday, it is!" phrase.
To keep the words as straight as I could, I lined them all up against a straight edge and picked them up with washi tape. Then I flipped it over and used a Zig glue pen to dot adhesive onto the letters. I laid it onto the main panel and after a few seconds, removed the washi tape.
I attached the whole thing to a 110 lb. white card base and added an extra little green guy on the inside of the card.
This was a relatively quick card to make, but with the characters taking center stage, I think its a great card for anyone who loves that little green alien!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
