Cards in Envy – Birthday Party Challenge
Hello Friends! It’s Monday morning and time for a new Cards in Envy challenge. Today we are having a PARTY!!! A “birthday party” to be more specific. You have until Sunday, August 16th to submit your entry and as our name states, your card must fit nicely in a standard sized A2 envelope. That means no big lumps, bumps, or large embellishments.
The first stamp that came to mind when I saw this theme was “The Whole Herd” from My Favorite Things. I saw a great video by Jennifer McGuire who showed “dot” coloring and used this stamp set for her example. I’ll warn you – this technique can be time consuming but the effect reminds me of a party.
I also did a lot of masking for this card. Remember, always stamp the images you want in the front first. So for this card I stamped the cow, the chicken and the pig, then masked those off and continued stamping. I also required a mask for the horse and haystack. My pattern paper is from Lily Bee called, Handmade.
We sure hope you’ll join the party! We can’t wait to see your cards. Have fun!
