Happy Happy Cardmaking with Keeway

Hi there! It's Keeway joining with you today in a happy, happy cardmaking session to make a fun birthday card! If there's any card I send out the most, it's birthday cards, so I definitely like to keep the stocked at all times. In our recent April Release, these adorable elephants in the Mommy, Daddy, and Me set, are not only great for your mother's and father's day cards, but can easily be transformed for any other occasion. Today, I'll be using them to create a fun birthday card.

I always start by stamping my images in hybrid ink (copic friendly) and coloring them up with copic markers. Then, I die cut them with the coordinating dies and set them aside. My elephants are from the Mommy, Daddy, and Me set, and the balloon came frrom the Little Monster set.
For my background, I wanted to create a celebratory feel, so what better than to fill it up with balloons! I used the Balloon Duo Simply Stencils to create this balloon filled background by blending on Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry, and Seedless Preserves distress oxide inks. With some masking using post-it tape, I also blended Hickory Smoke for the ground. 
I die cut the background out of an A2-sized frame.
Then, I grabbed a birthday sentiment from the So Many Sentiments stamp set and heat embossed it in white onto black cardstock. I used the fishtail die from the Classic Tag 2 die set to die cut the sentiment out. Finally, I adhered all the various pieces to the blended background with foam tape. All done! Have a happy, happy day!
