Happy 25th Birthday!

Well, I’m back to making birthday cards…  This year I am going to work ahead!  LOL!  Maybe…

My niece has a friend that is turning 25 and wanted a special card to give to him on his birthday.  I had recently purchased Birthday Wishes from Art Impressions but hadn’t had time to use it yet.  I love their stamps!  They have a line of stamps that all seem to have a sense of humor.  LOL!

I used my Copics to color the image and have listed the colors I used at the bottom of this post.  I added the dots using my Uni-ball Signo White Gel Pen.  I heat embossed the “Happy Birthday” from the stamp sent using Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder.

I die cut the numbers “2” and “5” using the Numbered Balloons die from Avery Elle.  I had some blue glitter paper that I thought would be great for the balloons.  This would make them stand out a little more than the ones I colored with my Copics.

I used my Stitched Rectangles die from Lawn Fawn to cut the image out.  The background paper is some I had in my stash.  After adhering my image and the cut out balloons, I thought it needed a little something more.  I didn’t have time for my Nuvo Crystal Drops to dry, so I dug in my stash and found some pre-made enamel dots.

I usually also add something to the inside of my cards.  For this card, I used another of the images from the same Birthday Wishes stamp set.

I also used my Copics to color this image and then added some details using my Uni-ball Signo White Gel Pen to add some pattern to his shirt and shorts.  The sentiment is also from the same stamp set.

It really is a great stamp set with so many options all in one stamp set!

Thanks for stopping by! 

Happy Crafting!

    Crikey, ~I am so glad to finally be able to comment. I tried for ages yesterday but WP and the internet were just not letting me! Anyway, I really needed to stop by and admire your lovely card. And also be reminded of what I may look like holding a cake over my head…..
