Party Animal Birthday Card

Good morning! Earlier this week we celebrated my youngest daughter's 12th birthday - I can't figure out where the time has gone! This time next year I will have two teenagers - yikes!

So...when you make cards the way I do, your kids expect a special card for their birthday, and with the past couple weeks of crazy life, I wasn't able to sit down to make this until the night before her birthday. I love to take the things they love and make their cards super personalized for them. This card I was inspired by her love of animals - she particularly loves wolves at the moment, but I didn't have any wolf stamps in my stash, so this had to do! She also is proud of that fact that her birthday is in the fall, so I definitely had to incorporate that!

I actually used a Lawn Fawn set that she had chosen earlier this summer, wanting to make birthday cards for her friends. It hadn't even been used yet - so it was the perfect opportunity. I stamped the critters on pattern paper, fussy cut out, then stamped several of the accessories on white cardstock, colored with Copics, and also fussy cut out to adhere together. Sentiment was stamped and heat embossed on vellum, then I adhered the critters over the top with foam adhesive.

  1. This card is sweet as can be! I'm sure your daughter will love it. I like that you stamped the animals on patterned paper so save time coloring. Loved the torn edges of the paper.

  2. Aww! This gorgeous trio make me smile! :-)
