It's Franci here with you today, with a couple of fun Happy Birthday cards..
Awww.. look at these adorable critters celebrating, they're so cute!
First of all I created my standard size top folding cardbase out of white cardstock and inked the front with Distress oxide inks. I chose Spiced Marmalade and Worn Lipstick and started blending them from the top and bottom to create a nice soft background.
I placed all the elements into this cute little scene and secured them down with a combo of foam adhesive and liquid glue, then added some details with a white gel pen.
Finally I added lots of little irridescent stars confetti on the background to create this fun faux shaker look.
If you'd like to turn this into a real shaker card but you're worried all the sequins will be laying on the bottom, leaving the top and center bare then glue some sequins to your shaker background: this way you'll have some fixed elements while all the other embellishments are moving around!
I cut out my back panel out of light blue cardstock and the front one out of white cardstock. I cut out a hill from my white panel and inked it with the Twisted Citron Distress ink oxide, then stamped my sentiment on it with in a matching green ink.
I stamped all my images, colored them with copics and die cut them out with their coordinated dies.
This interactive mechanism is fun and easy to create, you just need to play around with it a bit to understand how it works first. I really recommed watching this video by my friend Rina on the ME youtube channel :)
I love these cards so much and I hope you are now inspired to create with all your Mama Elephant goodies!
