MFT July Previews, Happy Birthday

Hi everyone!  Welcome back to a second day of July 8 release previews with My Favorite Things!  Today I’ve used our new Birdie Brown stamp set, Sweet Birthday Wishes, along with Celebrate You and Blueprints 17.

I created a card by die-cutting two of the “chalkboard” (or, in my case, “whiteboard”) pieces first from cardboard, then four from Red Hot card stock (one for each side of the two pieces).  I cut an additional piece of Red Hot card stock to cover the back of the front with a 1/4″ folded flap at the top which I inserted between the cardboard and card stock of the back piece. (Clear as mud?)

The cute girl was die-cut from X-Press It Blending Card using coordinating Sweet Birthday Wishes Die-namics, then colored with Copic markers (as were the gifts).  The sentiment is stamped from Celebrate You.

Inside, I stamped a sentiment from the Birthday Wishes set as well as a few balloons, masked and colored.
