Catered Crop: Happy Birthday Card

by May Park-

Hi, crafty friends! Today I’m sharing my quickfire card I created for the Catered Crop: Sentiment-al challenge. This time we want to see you use a quote or sentiment as the focal element of your creation.


Here is my quick and easy card, inspired by the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch #44.  I kept the orientation of the sketch but swapped the sentiment and the image. The sentiment from Stylish Sentiments: Birthday was stamped in the middle of the card front. Then I stamped a balloon image twice after covering the sentiment with a post-it note. After that, I made all the balloons different colors using Copic Markers. FYI, I cut a strip off the bottom of my card base to make it 1/4″ shorter than a regular A2 card.


These are the supplies that I used for my card: Copics and Post-it note are not pictured. The Stamp-a-ma-jig, a stamp positioner, helped me to get the perfect placement of my balloons both time.  By the way, I’m linking this into Color Media Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.

I hope you play along with us at Catered Crop as the winners will have a chance to guest design on the next recipe swap. Plus, check out the rest of the DT creations on Sunday, Sep 08.

Thanks, always, for stopping by! Have a great day! Happy crafting!
