Hey crafty friends! During the summer months, I like to re-build my stash of birthday cards for the upcoming year. Today, I’m sharing a fun birthday-inspired card featuring MFT Stamps’ Let’s Stick Together. These cacti are beyond adorable!
I stamped all of the images onto smooth white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink. All the images are colored with Copic Markers using the color combinations listed below.
Copic Marker Combination
Cacti: G28, YG67, YG17, YG13, YG01
Terracotta Pots: E18, E19, E08, E97, E95
Pink: RV17, RV55, RV52
I absolutely love bright and vibrant colors on my cards and this card called for a nice yellow background. Using Distress Oxide inks in Wild Honey, Mustard Seed, and Squeezed Lemonade, I inked up a piece of heavy-weight smooth cardstock. Then I created some texture by spritzing water on the panel and blotting it dry with a clean paper towel.
I thought the panel needs a little more so I splattered diluted white paint, yellow paint, and a little bit of orange paint for a festive look.
I was inspired by the MFT Sketch Challenge for the layout of this card and I followed their design sketch. For the rectangle element on my card, I simply added the scalloped rectangle frames and placed my images in the center. Finally, to finish this card, I stamped the sentiment and layered the front panel with foam adhesive to a brown cardstock mat.
As always thank you so much for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!
