Hooray! Birthday Mouse Card with Pink & Main

Friday, March 29, 2024

I'm in the celebratory mood with this colorful card! I'm continuing my guest design month with Pink & Main with a cute, birthday card! I was inspired by last Friday's episode of Craft Roulette for the look, theme and colors, but let's get in to how this card was made. I started with foiling my background with a teal colored foil and then ink blended with Distress Oxides to give it fun blend from orange to purple with pink in between.

The panel was trimmed to A2 in size (4-1/4 x 5-1/2") and I used the rectangle frame die in a teal cardstock to add two rectangles onto the card background (which was adhered to a card base) with foam adhesive. I also die cut my "Hooray" sentiment out of apricot and purple cardstock, using leftover pink ink on my brush to add ink to the bottom of the word die cut.

I did the same for my banner that was cut and embossed! I added my sentiment and banner to the card with foam adhesive as well, plus added a few gems for some more shiny color. My images were stamped with a pale grey ink that was alcohol marker friendly and used my OLO markers to color them in. I left my stamps in my MISTI so I could stamp the images again in the same spot with a purple ink to give them a bold outline in a matching color!

Using the coordinating dies, I cut out the images and added them to my card with foam adhesive. I just love how sweet this card turned out and the color scheme just makes me so happy! I hope you like this card, too, and you can check out the new release by using my links below.
