As promised, I am back today with more from the Birthday Memories suite! I love the nostalgic feelings this suite evokes and yet it feels new and fresh too. That's a win-win! Here's my card today, an animal parade of sorts:
I used a popular side step card design and cut out the animals, placing them on different panels to get a dimensional effect. There is a framelit for the fox and I hand cut out the raccoon and bunny, which wasn't difficult at all. One of my favorite pieces of this set is the pennant! There are stamps, Designer Series Paper and a framelit to use with this design and I'm finding myself grab it for all sorts of cards and themes. For my birthday cake, I used markers to ink up the stamp. That's an easy way to get different colors on a stamp and then stamp it all at once. The trickiest part of this card is taking a good picture! There are too many shadows!
I'll come back tomorrow for a special Saturday post with one more Birthday Memories suite card!
