Jaimee's Birthday Card

One of my kids had a birthday party to go to recently, and I needed to make a card for her friend.
Here is the card I made. It is a case from other cards I have made, using the same techniques.
You can click on the image for a larger view.

Stamps: Penny Black clear stamps "Critter Party";
Fiskars Clear stamps "Put on your party hat"
Inks: Stazon Jet Black, SU! Ballet Blue
Watercolour pencils
The clouds were created by cutting out a piece of paper with a scalloped edge and, using it like a mask, sponging from the top of the card to the bottom with the template and the Ballet Blue ink.
The cat was stamped onto a separate piece of white cardstock, coloured in, cut out and then mounted onto the clouds with mouning foam.
I stamped the happy birthday straight onto the card, then traced over the word with my Crystallina Kindyglitz. I also put the KG onto the balloons.

This is always one of my fave ways of making cards - simple but effective and with layers.

Thanks for visiting.
