Neon Colored Bears Birthday Card

Hello! I created a fun card. I made this to join Lawn Fawnatics latest blog challenge. After I saw the photo, all I can think of is the lively colors of the cupcakes.

I stamped the bear from Lawn Fawn Party Animal stamp set on Arches water color paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I colored the bears using Karin Neon Brushmarkers, following the colors of the cupcake icing. I stamped the party hats from the same stamp set following the colors of the cupcake wrappers. I brushed these party hats with Spectrum Noir Sparkle Glitter brush pen. I fussy cut these stamped images leaving a white border around the image.

For the pennants, I partially die cut the ends of the longest banner die in the LF Fancy Folded Banners die set to create small pennants. I die cut different colored card stocks and white card stock from my paper stash following the colors of the birthday candles. I used the negative cut created by the banner end as a placement guide for stamping the individual letters to create the sentiment. To do this, I added a full adhesive Post It tape to the back of the negative die cut. I nestled the banner in the open area, positioned the letter on the banner die cut. I used the Misti Stamping Tool so I can double stamp each letter for embossing. I stamped the letters using Hero Arts Unicorn White pigment ink and HA white embossing powder. The letters are from the LF Milo's ABCs stamp set.

After I have completed embossing the letters, I cut each pennant to an inch and scored the top 1/8". I folded the pennant on this scored line and adhered this to a twine. I adhered the white pennant die cut to the back of the colored pennant.

For the background, I trimmed two blue colored card stocks to 8 7/8" x 3 7/8" to create a slim card for an A9 sized envelope. I also cut a patterned paper using the same measurement. I partially die cut the patterned paper using the LF Outside In Stitched Rectangle to be able to create a longer framer.

I embossed the LF Fancy Lattice Background die on the darker blue card stock. I also did partially embossing on this card stock so I can embossed the whole slim sized card stock.

I created a confetti background on the light blue card stock using some of the small stamps on the LF Animal Party stamp set. I embossed these stamps using Wow! White Pearl embossing powder.

To put the scene together, I adhered the lattice embossed card stock to the bottom of the confetti background panel. I cut off the excess. I positioned the bears next. I adhered the banner using foam adhesive. I glued the excess twine to the card stock panel. I adhered the party hats with foam adhesive. I adhered the scalloped patterned paper next. I added Ranger Glossy Accents to the party hats and set this aside to dry.

Thank you for visiting my blog. It seems like a lot of work done for this card but I truly enjoyed putting this scene together. Have a SAFE, blessed, brilliant and creative day!
