Just a slight break in Christmas card production today,
for a bright and cheerful birthday card.

My inspiration came from a fabulous Laura Fedora project video,
that you can see at the Simon Says Stamp Blog

I started by covering a card panel with distress inks and some water splashes.
On another panel, I die cut my 'Happy Birthday to You' a few times.
The top and bottom of the panel just had small pieces of the letters visible, so I decided to cut these off, and actually, it allows the distress ink to show through nicely.
I used tiny pieces of foam tape to pop this up onto the distress ink background,
and then tucked in a few random sequins.

I finished by adding my Yeti, and a little, labeled message.


MFT - Beast Friends / Happy Birthday To You Die
Distress Inks - Festive Berries / Pickled Raspberry / Spiced Marmalade / Mustard Seed / Twisted Citron / Cracked Pistachio / Salty Ocean
Big Hugs Sentiment is Mama Elephant, Labeled Messages

Hi Caroline, what a bright and happy birthday card. Of course you have to stop to make a birthday card. Christmas comes but once a year. Birthdays happen ALL the time. Great background showing through those negative die-cuts. The Distress inks are so wonderfully vivid. I love that you cut your "Happy Birthday to You" at an angle. Very effective. And, of course, that adorable little Yeti--what can I say? Beautifully coloured and adorable. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
