I created this card for a Special Friend of mine who just turned 40!!! I created a standard A2 size card base from some Neenah Solar White and then I die cut a Piece of Dark Grey card stock with the Mama Elephant Pizazz Pieces Creative Cuts. Then I adhered it to the card front and set that piece aside. I die cut another piece of White card stock using the Dotted Details Creative Cuts and added a Background with the Geometric Grid Stencil from My Favorite Things and some Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink.
I stamped Happy Birthday from the Big Greetings Set from Avery Elle over the center of the panel with some VersaFine Black ink and then I adhered the piece to the card front. I die cut a second frame from some Black card stock and added just the frame around the image panel. I stamped the images from the Rock and Paws Set and colored them in with Copics. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I adhered them to the card front with some Foam mounting tape.
For a touch of Shimmer I added a little Clear Wink of Stella to the Guitar and the star over the eye and the Musical Notes. This is a Masculine card so I didn’t want to over do it with the Sparkles. I really like the way Grey, Black and Yellow look together and How adorable is this stamp set?
I used the following Copics for my images:
Musical Notes ~ 100,C9,C7,C5 & C1 Speakers ~ T7,T5, T3 & T1 Dog ~ R05,W7,W5,W3,W1 &W0 Guitar ~ C3, C1 & C00 and a little 0 Colorless Blender
