Happy Birth-Yay!

I was inspired by Joy Taylor on the MFT Design Team with this card. I used the Sweet Celebration Wishes stamp set by Stacey Yacula, such cute images! I love the expressions on their little faces in particular πŸ˜€

Supplies Used:

  • Neenah white cardstock #80 & #110
  • Lawn Fawn Black Licorice cardstock
  • Nuvo Gold Glitter cardstock
  • My Favorite Things Sending Sweet Celebration Wishes Stamp and Die set
  • My Favorite Things Yay Stamp and Die set
  • Ellen Hutson Starry Background Die
  • My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle
  • Tsukeniko Radiant Neon Amplify in White
  • Nuvo Glitter Gloss pen
  • Ink on 3 Arctic White embossing powder and Versamark ink
  • Distress Inks used: Worn Lipstick and Tattered Rose
  • Copics used: R24, RV14, R22, R20, R00, E43, E31, E41, E40, E59, E25, E23, Y38, Y15

I ink blended my panel on the back with Distress Inks and my trusty Tim Holtz mini ink blending tool and foams.

I cut three white starry backgrounds. The Ellen Hutson die does not cut the edge, so I used the largest stitched rectangle in the MFT nested set for the front panel. I trimmed the other two to stack tidily behind the front panel. I did try cutting a panel of foam to save time, but it kinda distorted and cutting two further cardstock pieces instead saved my sanity! I wanted dimension, but I didn’t want it too high, so two layers behind was enough.

I coloured and cut out the cute wee bunny and added details to his hat and tail with the Radiance Amplify.

The Yay was cut four times and stacked. I used Copics to match the background and bunny and blended dark to light from bottom to top. Sparkle was added with a Nuvo glitter pen. The MFT set has retired I think, but this can be easily recreated with alphabet dies you may have.

I lined up two sentiments from the Yay stamp set to fit across the front of the card and white heat embossed on a black strip, and mounted this onto the card with a strip of thin craft foam.

I ran the top of the Starry background die onto some Nuvo gold glitter cardstock and added the little stars to the card as a finishing touch.

If you have any questions regarding the putting together of this card, please feel free to message me – I’m only too happy to help!
