Hi, crafty friends. I’ve got a super simple card coming your way today, featuring the Belated Birthday Sloth image from Mo’s Digital Pencil. This actually comes as a set. You get two sloths, one with birthday gear and one without. I used the one without the birthday gear for this one, but used the party hat from the one WITH the gear to add a bit more color to my card.
I colored and fussy cut the sloth, colored in the party hat and fussy cut that, before putting both pieces aside while I worked on the rest of my card. I created a card base from Blue Breeze cardstock from My Favorite Things and created a wall for the sloth to hang onto using Stamper’s Select White cardstock from Papertrey Ink. To create a bit of texture to the wall, I stamped the Touch of Texture background stamp from My Favorite Things using Soft Stone ink from Papertrey Ink. It’s subtle, but still adds a little bit of interest.
I stamped a sentiment from the Anything-but-Basic Birthday Wishes stamp set from My Favorite Things using Obsidian ink from Altenew, before adding the wall to the card base with 1 mm foam squares. I added the sloth using foam tape and finished off the card with a few Starry Sky Ombré Glitter Drops from Pinkfresh Studio. I also added a dot of Black Glaze pen to his eyes for a bit of shine and dimension, which is easy to see in real life, but tricky to photograph.
This was initially a very muted, very simple color palette. Let’s just say things changed when I decided to add the party hat 🙂
