Today I brought you a card that I made for the Paper Smooches Friendship Challenge. As always I am literally in the last minute with this, I have to change my crafting habits 😀
I wanted to make a fun card using the Chubby chums stamp set and the birthday bash stamp set. I stamped the middle muffin on a strip of white cardstock then masked it off with a mask I made from post-it note and stamped another two muffins. I masked those the same way and stamped the cat behind, masked it off also an stamped the cluster of balloons together with another two single balloons. I put masks on these too and applied light blue ink through an MFT stencil to make the background a bit more interesting.
I coloured my images with Shinhan alcohol markers, went through my images with a black multiliner to make them pop. I added some shimmer with the Spectrum Noir shimmer pen, and black glaze pen on the eyes of the cat.
I die cut the celebrate word from a pretty metallic black cardstock, and using the negative of the die cut, I glued it to the front panel. The rest of the sentiment is from an MFT set, stamped in SSS Maliblue ink several times to make it darker. A little paw print from the Chubby chums set finished off the sentiment. I added black glaze pen to this to make it pop.
I added a strip of Doodlebug patterned paper on a top folding notecard, and a black metallic and silver metallic thin strip of cardstock to my front panel, which I mounted on the card base using foam tape.
As a final touch I covered all the balloons with a generous amount of glossy accent.
I hope you like it and will see you soon,
