One of the resolutions I am making for the New Year is to organize myself and make a list of people that I should be sending birthday cards to each month. Of course that means I should also make some birthday cards! The list would be no good if there is no pretty to mail. :)
On that note here is the first of my 2009 birthday cards. This one uses some cute Whipper Snapper stamps and some lovely textured designer paper from Brenda Walton. Hopefully I can make a bunch of cards in January and at least be set for a while. I may even make multiples of my favorites... maybe.
Quick notes: Main image was stamped twice on PTI Select White. First image was completely colored with Copic markers. On the second image only two of the gifts were colored. They were then cut out and adhered with dimensionals over the first image for some extra pop! To create the background I used the numbers from the 29 Again cling set and randomly placed them on an acrylic block creating my own custom numbered background. I then repeated stamped my faux backround on the Cool Caribbean layer of cardstock. That is it for the tricks on this card! :)
