Sending Sweet Celebration Wishes slimline card

In between household chores and errands, I found a little more time this weekend to play around with this FMS sketch. Open designs like this are perfect for little scenes (like my last post) so my mind was just spinning with an idea to create a festive birthday scene for a friend’s special day.

To start, I used Distress Oxide ink to blend on a bit of color with the heaviest concentration near the corners. I then stamped confetti-streamer images toward the upper right and left and added a little bit of color with similarly colored Copic markers. I stamped a few more onto scrap paper to add as embellishments (and to cover a boo-boo!).

Once the remaining images were colored and die-cut, I applied the cakes directly to the card front and the critters slightly overlapping them using dimensional adhesive. The two confetti pieces were also applied with dimensionals. Once in place, a few white sequins add to the fun… and they’re a lot less messy than real confetti!

Note: The critter/party images are from Sending Sweet Celebration Wishes by MFT Stamps while the greeting is from Paola’s Wishes by Mama Elephant. I’m not affiliated with any online stores, so I don’t have links for you; but you can usually find both of these companies’ products at Simon Says Stamp and Ellen Hutson.
