Happy Birthday Chickadee!

Happy Birthday Chickadee!
Made this birthday card for my nephew second birthday that is on tomorrow. My brother is having a family birthday dinner for him tomorrow but my family and I could not attend. Thus, I made this card for him instead. Wish him good health!

Seize the Sketch #19
This time, I play with Seize the Sketch #19 as shown above. I rotate the sketch clockwise to fit my images and sentiment bubble.

Close-up : Flags with loose end
The flags are die cut from pattern papers and yellow card stock. Then, they are arranged and attached on a blue card base as in sketch. The flags' tails are not entirely attached to the card base as I want it to lift up a little for dimension.

Close-up : Chickadee in party hat
The chickadee is stamped on a white card stock and colored using Copic markers before adhering onto the card base as in sketch. The party hat is stamped on a scrap white card stock and colored using Copic markers before it is trimmed. Then, it is attached onto the chickadee's head using pop dots.

Close-up : Sentiment in speech bubbles
The sentiment and speech bubble are stamped on a yellow card stock and trimmed accordingly. The word 'chickadee' is stamped using 'selective inking/stamping' method. The speech bubble is later attach onto the right of the white card stock using pop dots which seem the chickadee speaking of it.

Close-up : Googly eyes 
The card is finished with two (2) googly eyes onto the chickadee which just perfect for a two (2) years old kid to play with a little!

Dimension : 10.16cm x 15.24cm or 4" x 6"
Type : Horizontal fold
Inlay : None
