I feel like I haven't really made that many birthday cards recently so when I saw that the focus on SSI was going to be Birthday cards, I had to participate! I definitely haven't given the Party Animal Suite much love, which is a shame since I have the whole suite. I needed a little help so I decided to check out one of the great sketch challenges out there: CAS(E) this Sketch. Have a look:
Pretty fun, right? Here is my take on it:
I love all the fun patterns in this Designer Series Paper pack. I thought the Polka Dots would be a perfect background on the Crumb Cake card base. I liked the little dots on the Crumb Cake on the bottom part because they almost act as a neutral. And come on, the Party Animal paper? Love me some Party Animals complete with hats! I added a layer of Pacific Point card stock and layered on some of the Party Animal Designer Series Washi Tape. I fussy cut the banner and finished the card off with the Emerald Envy Taffeta ribbon and a little Party Hat embellishment tied on. Here is the inside:
For the inside I kept it simple with ink and washi tape. For a complete list of products check out below. For more birthday cards, head over to SSI!
