Here's my card for the Birthday Celebrations, I used some of our recently released stamp sets for it. As a surprise to Mudra owner, Varshitha, all of our designers are sharing happy birthday cards today :o)
1. I coloured and fussy cut one of the cute ostriches, and did the same for the balloon
2. To make the front panel, I first die cut it with Mama Elephant dies, and then coloured the background using Distress Inks. For additional interest, I spritzed the background with some water mixed with Ranger's Perfect Pearls
3. I put the panel together on top of a top folding card base, and then adhered the ostrich & the balloon (for additional dimension, the balloon is popped up on some foam tape)
4. I stamped the string, making sure that one part of it appears to be coming out of the ostrich's wing, and I also hand drew a little bit of the string around the end of the balloon, for a more realistic look
5. The "happy" part of my sentiment was stamped directly onto my card panel, and the "birthday" was stamped on a scrap piece of paper, fussy cut, and mounted on the front panel with some foam tape
6. To decorate the card, I used a shimmer pen on the balloon, and added a few embellishments made with Ranger Enamel Accents in complimentary colours
