Hey - thanks for having a closer look at my card :-) After having done no cardmaking for a month, I am slowly getting back into the groove with this simple card I made for my nephew's birthday.
The kraft cs was run through my CB using the Happy Birthday ef and I rounded the corners with my Stampin' Up corner punch. I stamped the dog using Versafine Vintage Sepia ink, heat-set it then coloured it with Prismacolor and Derwent Coloursoft pencils + OMS, added some AI blue glitter to the present, cut the image out and popped it up on foam pads.
The sentiment panel was diecut using one of the Spellbinder Tags Trio dies and I inked around the edges with Sky blue pigment ink, heat-set it so it wouldn't smear, added the blue brads then popped this panel up on foam pads as well. The sentiment actually says 'Celebrate All Day' but I masked off the words to just leave the word 'Celebrate'.
Lastly, I tied the gingham ribbon on the card, slipped it off again and sewed the blue button to the centre, then slipped the ribbon back on - much easier than trying to sew the button on when the ribbon is already on the card.
