To start, I die cut a frame with confetti cardstock from Surprise Party using Comic Strip Everyday Dies. Next, I placed the frame over A2 white cardstock and gently traced the horizontal lines on the frame. I used the lines as a guide to ink blend the background. I removed the the frame and started ink blending my background working from bottom to top using Abandoned Coral, Squeezed Lemonade, and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Inks. I splattered water onto the background and added specks of orange, yellow and blue water color.
I stamped “Make a Wish” from Big Bold Greetings Stamp with Versamark Ink and heat embossed it with pink embossing powder. I then die cut the sentiment with the coordinating Big Bold Greetings Dies. I adhered the sentiment onto another die cut out of white cardstock to make the sentiment stand out.
I stamped the cute pandas from Panda Party and the birthday cake from Make A Wish Stamps. I borrowed some presents from Happy Owlidays, balloons from Oceans of Joy, and the party hats from Party Pups. I die cut the images with the coordinating dies and colored them all with Copic Markers listed below.
I adhered the frame to the background of the card followed by all the images using foam tape for extra dimension.
