The challenge for this week's Blogger's Challenge Friday group was to use the layout of the birthday card that's on the cover of the Stampin' Up Sale-A-Bration catalog. It's a very cute layout! I really enjoyed making this card.
Rather than making a standard A2 sized card, I chose to make a slightly smaller card - this one is 3.5 x 5 inches.
This image of the bunny in the bathtub is a Whipper Snapper stamp by illustrator Shelly Comiskey. This is another stamp that arrived at my house this week. I love getting new stamps!!
I stamped the image in Black Stazon and painted it with a water brush and Stampin' Up reinkers. I used Spellbinder dies to cute the rectangle shape and the scalloped rectangle. Have I mentioned how much I like the Spellbinder dies?! Lots and LOTS! I still have (and use) my hand-held Marvy scalloped punches, too. They come in handy as well!
I think this layout would make really cute baby cards. Maybe that's why I used such soft colors!?
