Sizzix Happy Birthday Card Front - The Stamps of Life

Hello friends!  I know it's been awhile since I've last posted anything.  I have been enjoying some much needed time away with my family.  It's good to be back crafting again and I wanted to share with you a fun and simple birthday card that I made for a friend of mine.

I first started by stamping this adorable dog image from the Friends4Cookie stamp set designed by Stephanie Barnard for The Stamps of Life.  I then colored my dog image with Copic Sketch Markers

Copic Colors Used:
  • Dog fur:  N2, N3, N5, N6 and N8 for shading
  • Tongue:  RV10, RV13, RV14
  • Collar: RV04, RV06, RV09
 I then diecut my image with the coordinating dies.

I then my background using the Sizzix Happy Birthday Card Front Die Set which I cut from white card stock.  I used the largest Scalloped Rectangle Die as my frame.  To give it a softer look, I added a piece of vellum behind my diecut bacground piece.  Lastly, I attached my image with foam adhesive squares to give the card some more dimension.
That's it for today!  Thanks so much for stopping by :0)  Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
