The next birthday is only 5 days later, D-I-L #3. This family have a very cute 3 year old boy and a slightly older small white dog, called Ruby. I had spruiked this card for a class in May that didn't go ahead, but it was fairly easy to take it from a partially completed piece of work to the coloured version.
Bella and Friends is the name of this delightful stamp set, and its been in 2, or maybe even 3 catalogues already. It pairs up beautifully with another stamp called Pretty Kitty, which I shared in a similar card back here.The reason these stamps are ideal for this style of card is the multiple smaller images and a number of sentiments you can spread across the spaces.
I repeated the 'Happy Birthday, gorgeous' from Beautiful You, on the outside, 'cos these girls are all my favourites!!! There is minimal colouring on the puppy, just some shading in grey and her red collar. I used the Balloon Builder Punch and glued the smaller one of the pair over the top of the stamped image.
You can imagine the fun when this card opens up and twists and pops. I wasn't sure if it was going to survive the afternoon with the young fellow working it pretty hard. I think his mum put it away safely before he wrecked it.
Enjoy some crafting time
