Simple Happy Birthday

Simple Happy Birthday - Front
Made this card for my ex-colleague whose birthday is coming up next week.


AnnaBelle Stamps Blog Challenge ABSC055
This card layout is inspirational from AnnaBelle Stamps Blog Challenge ABSC055 sketch/challenge as shown above. I decided to turn the sketch counter clockwise.

Close-up : The birthday cake
The birthday cake is stamped on a white card stock and colored using Copic markers. The edge of the white card stock is distressed using some green ink before attaching onto a pink corrugated card.

Close- up : The ants trail
A pattern paper that look like confetti is attached on a green card base. A yellow strip where one side of the edge is trimmed in wave finishing is attached onto the pattern paper as per sketch. The cake is attached to the edge of the yellow strip as in sketch. I added some fun to the card by stamping the ants trail onto the left side of the yellow strip looking like the ants are after the birthday cake! I finish off the front card by adding some pearls to the birthday cake.

Simple Happy Birthday - Inside
I decided to continue the fun inside the card. I stamp a turtle with some sentiment onto the center of a white card stock. The turtle is colored using Copic markers before attaching it to the inside of the card.
Close-up : The turtle and his saying

Dimension : 10.16cm x 15.24 cm or 4" x 6"
Type : Vertical fold
Inlay : Yes with stamped image and sentiment
