Happy Birthday Whimsy Turtle
I made this card for my Brother-in-Laws Birthday. I don't think it is too girly, what do you think?
Stampin' Meg from Peacock Paperie had such a cute card posted on her blog with this folding technique. I knew I had to try it.
The card base (kiwi Kiss) measures 8.5 x 4.25, scored at 3 inches. The little card base inside measures 6.75x 2.5 scored at 3.25 inches. It looks hard, but is really easy to make.
This cute image is from Whimsy stamps , it was colored using Prismacolor Pencil and blended with baby oil. I sponged some bashful blue on the sky portion of the image and not quite navy on the water portion of the image. The balloons were made by punching 1/2 inch circles and I attached a clear bubble to each one. Embellishments used are a paper clip with teal ribbon,. The sentiment was cut out into a banner and I folded it up and tucked it under the paper clip.
Stamps: Whimsy Turtle, Birthday Whimsy sentiment (by SU),
Paper: Kiwi kiss, taken with teal, Designer Paper (SU), white (georgia Pacific)
Accessories: clear bubbles (joann), half inch circle punch (SU), paper clip, ribbon, prismacolor pencils.
Thanks for looking.
