Happy Birthday, Joy
Today is my niece's 3rd birthday! I chose a design with all the colours she loves and a super sweet birthday-bear, and I made another design choice that may be less obvious.
I used the stitched scallop die from Stacked Edges 1 but I placed them on the card sideways and coloured them in such a way that it looks a little like a bunch of 3's! I started by cutting them, and then I used Post-it tape to mask each '3' before blending Catherine Pooler ink on with a sponge dauber.
Next, I coloured the Bear from Cupcake Critters, leaving him mostly white, but using matching Copic markers for his cupcake and hat.
For the sentiment, I used the curvy/landscape die from Stacked Edges 1 and then cut the edge using the stitched scallop die so that it would match the scallop edge perfectly.
I stamped Celebrate from Everyday Greetings on it and then popped it up over the scallops before adding the bear.
I used jewels from Party Mix, Sugar Plum Mix and Valentine Mix for some sparkle.
