Hi! I have a simple, yet colorful birthday card to share today, featuring the Confetti Celebration stamp set from Purple Onion Designs, illustrated by Julian Charlton.
I love Elliot & Marcel, they’re such a cute pair, and so full of character!! These two don’t have a ton of detail to them, making them quick and easy to color. If detailed coloring isn’t your thing, these stamps are a great option. I colored my elephant and monkey (and umbrella and confetti) using my Copics, and I didn’t even ground these. I did, however die cut them into a panel using the largest of my A2 stitched rectangles dies from My Favorite Things.
I adhered my colored panel onto a top fold card base I made from Lush Lagoon card stock from My Favorite Things, and added a second white panel with faux stitching to the inside of the card, giving me plenty of space to write a personal message to the recipient.
I stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment from the Confetti Celebration stamp set onto a separate piece of Lush Lagoon card stock and decided to cut it up, leaving out the word birthday entirely and using a die from My Favorite Things to create die cut letters instead. I used the Big Birthday Wishes die, and die cut it three times from white card stock and once from a silver glitter card stock.
I stacked my letters for a dimensional look, glued them to my card and added the rest of the sentiment above and below my die cut word. The wonky angles I used for the sentiment goes well with the playful look of the image and adds a little bit of visual interest.
To finish off the card I added a few enamel dots from Papirdesign that match the colors I used for the confetti and the umbrella.
Very simple use of Copics for this one. With such a fun, simple image, you really don’t need much.
