I think the Birthday Smiles set is so versatile and fun, I especially love the balloons and the ice-cream (I will have to be sure to use that in a future card!). To create this card I first marked out a rectangle on a piece of card, this would be the area for my scene. I die cut a piece of masking paper and laid it where I wanted the snowy hill to be. I then stamped the little hearts and dots from the Birthday Smiles set onto the background with versamark ink also adding some smaller dots with the versamarker. I added white embossing powder and heat embossed those onto the background. After I had done that I added the inky sky. I did this by blending Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire and a Black Soot Distress Inks.
I then stamped the balloon and the little penguin from Snow Kissed onto some white card, colored them with copic markers and fussy cut them. I stuck the balloon and the penguin onto the card and added a string to have the penguin holding the balloon. I stuck the background panel onto a card with some patterned paper and then laid over top a piece of card with a rectangle die cut out of the middle. I like creating scenes this way because I think it adds some dimension to the card. To finish it off I cut a strip of white card and die cut both ends using one of the Fishtail Banner dies. I then added the sentiment in silver embossing power.
That finishes up the card for today. I hope you enjoyed it! Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to hop over to the Sunny Studios blog for more inspiration in the coming week!
