Auzz Trinklets N Crafts ~ Pets and Animals

Hi everyone,

This month is full on with birthdays and special occasions, I will be turning 21 this Wednesday (15th November YAY!) how time flies by...but anyway, this month's theme is Pets and Animals at Auzz Trinklets N Crafts and I have created this cute birthday card that I made for my friend's birthday. She has quite a variety of pets!

I always enjoy playing around with multiple stamp sets to create something cute, fun and unique.

~My Process~

First I cut my card base at 8 1/2 by 5 1/2 inches, and folded it in half. Then I cut my card front using My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 1 ( 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" ).

I used my Sizzix Big Shot to cut out the card front, clouds and grass.

I used the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform to stamp the sentiment 'HERD YOU HAD A BIRTHDAY' using Versafine Onyx Black ink and the animals using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped the animals onto X-Press It Blending Card so I could use them with my Copic Ciao markers.

Everything was adhered to the card base and card front using Tombow Multi Mono Liquid Glue.

To add some dimension to the animals eyes and the cat and dog's nose I used a Sakura Glaze pen in black.
