Sometimes you need to share a little humor, even when life has you down. Today I'm sharing a silly little birthday card I made for one of my close friend's birthday yesterday. Sadly she had just gone through the memorial service for her late husband on Wednesday.
While her sadness will last a while for sure, she needed a bright and cheerful birthday card.
I selected 'Imagine That Digi Stamp's Rocky's Stonemobile and here is the completed card.
I sized the image to about 3 1/2" tall and then typed the sentiment above and below the image. After printing on Neenah 110# cardstock, I used Copic markers for coloring.
After pulling some bright papers to go with the colored image, I decided on my layout. I used Whimsy Stamps Zig Zag Rectangles die set on the image and the green vertical strip.
The card base is 6" square and I turned it for a side fold. I added the bright orange to the base and then the vertical strip and finally the colored image. To complete the card, I used a variegated thread and looped it at the fold five times. I knotted it just below the top on the left corner. I didn't have a dinosaur charm, but I found a pair of elephants and decided they would work. I used an extra strong glue dot to attach the elephants over the knot and to the card base.
