Crafter's Companion's fifth birthday!!
I started with a 11" x 7 1/2" piece of purple card stock. I folded this in half to have a 5 1/2" x 7 1/2" card base. I used the Extra Strong Permanent Tape to attach a 5" x 7" piece of hot pink card stock to the center of the front of the card. I used the same tape to stick a 4 3/4" x 6 3/4" piece of lime green card stock to the center of the hot pink card stock. I set this to the side until later.
For the images, I started with a 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of Ultra Smooth Premium Cardstock. I stamped the main image twice. I also stamped the additional image of the duck with cupcake and the text "Let's Celebrate"
I used Spectrum Noir markers to color one main image and the extra duck. On the second image, I colored the small duck and top package. I colored the big fancy bow on the middle package. I also added a little gray shading to the envelope on this image.
I trimmed the fully colored image to 4 1/2" x 6 1/2". I "fussy cut" the colored areas of the second image. You could certainly leave out this step, it is not essential to the card. I "fussy cut" the larger duck also. For the text, I trimmed it to approximately 1 3/4" x 1 1/8". I used the permanent tape on the back of the text and attached it to a scrap of the purple card stock. I trimmed this to a tiny border for the text. I then used the tape on the back of the purple card stock and placed the piece on a scrap of hot pink. This piece ended up measuring approximately 2" x 1 3/8".
I used tape, once again, to attach the colored image to the center of the lime green on the card base.
I used Double-Sided Adhesive Foam (or cut as needed) to pop up and attach the "fussy cut" pieces to the corresponding images on the front of the card. I used the foam behind the larger duck too. I placed the duck by the bear's leg. Please refer to photo for placement.
I cut a 5 1/2" x 1/4" from the scraps of purple card stock. Use adhesive of your choice to attach the purple strip about 1 1/8" down from the top of the card. Use the foam adhesive on the back of the text piece and place it about 5/8" down from the top and in from the left of the card.
Thanks for stopping by to celebrate with us!! Hope you enjoyed all the projects from all the designers. I know I have. Every week, I get new inspiration from these talented ladies.
Until next time, I am ever searching for inspiration.
