Ok! Let’s get to the card making! I stamped a bunch of the images from the Celebrate Life stamp set with black ink on Neenah white cardstock. I colored in the images with the Nuvo alcohol markers and then cut them all out.
I picked out the “happy birthday” sentiment from the Celebrate Sentiments stamp set and stamped it onto a large strip of white cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I then adhered that strip onto a panel of patterned paper. Using a white gel pen I went around the edge of the patterned paper with dashed lines.
I arranged all of the images on the panel and then glued them down with either Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive or foam tape. I then glued the whole panel onto a card base. I added highlights to all of the stamped images with a white gel pen.
For the finishing touches I first used Nuvo Crystal Glaze on the balloon, the cherries, and the circles on the cake. Next I added some sparkle here and there with a glitter brush. Finally I added a whole bunch of sequins on the background to make this card really look like a real crazy party.
Thanks for joining me today, be sure to keep hopping along!
