My Happy Birthday card for today is a little different. It is not the super bright and cheery card you may be used to. The colors are a little deeper and would make a great masculine birthday card.
The biggest difference is that I split the Happy and Birthday from the Happy Birthday Thinlits. What do you think? I do believe it is just fine to do that. It gives a totally different look.
My color inspiration came from the designer series paper. It is from the Delightful Daisy DSP pack. The variation of the green is beautiful. I looked at the different shades and came up with Old Olive, Pear Pizzaz, and Lemon Lime Twist. I used those markers to color the party hat.
The hats are stamped and then colored with the markers I listed above. The center one is stamped , but also has a hat raised with dimensionals on top of it. Stamping underneath gives a much better look than just raising the image with a white space beneath. I used the Clear Wink of Stella on the pompoms of the hats. It really does not photograph though.
I used the Big Shot to cut the Happy Birthday after I had attached the Multipurpose Adhesive sheet to the card stock. (This is a must have for intricate cutouts) I used my paper snips to cut the two words apart and attached them to the layers. I placed them as high, and then low, as I could to make room for the middle panel.
Thank you very much for visiting with me today. I hope your day is awesome!!
