Hello friends! This month’s Outside the Box Challenge is all about creating Out of the Box Birthday Scenes! Come play along for a chance to win a $50 MFT Gift Voucher!
For my card today, I used one of my absolute favorite birthday stamp sets I(Sending Sweet Celebration Wishes) llustrated by Stacey Yacula. I stamped all of my images onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, colored them with Copic Markers, and used the coordinating die-namics to cut them out. For my background, I blended some Summer Splash Premium Dye Ink onto a piece of Smooth White Card Stock using the Cloud Stencil.
I diecut some grassy hills from white card stock and blended them with both Sour Apple and Field Day Premium Dye Inks. I also added a banner using the Pop Up Banner Die-namics. I trimmed some strips of black card stock for my banner poles to allow it to be a little bit taller and added the string and flag pieces from the Pop Up Banner Set. I colored each banner piece (cut from white card stock) with Copic Markers to add some color. You could also simply use colored card stock but I wanted my banner to have some shading to it.
