Lawn Fawn Birthday
Hi friends! Happy Saturday! We’re delighted to welcome back special guest Elena Roussakis as a guest on our blog!
Hi there! I’m thrilled to be on the SSS blog with a card made specially for my soccer-loving nephew’s 7th birthday!
I really wanted to make this card as bright and happy as his little smile! I mixed a lot of older stamps with new stamps and stencils to get the look I wanted. I had the idea of doing a soccer ball cake topper, with its own candle. With that in mind, I combed through my stash of Lawn Fawn sets and pulled out the cake and candle from Birthday Before ‘n Afters, the number 7 from Quinn’s 123s, and the soccer ball from All Star.To make the cake topper work, I had to do without all the candles on top of the cake. I inked up the cake, but then wiped off the ink from the top of the cake. I would have to re-draw a part of the cake at the top. The same would go for the candle, I only wanted the flame. The number 7 would act as the candle, with the flame coming out from it. In the photo below, you could see how I stamped the 2 images so that they could work for my custom creation.
Once the cake was stamped, colored and assembled, I had the idea that critters could come running for a slice of delicious birthday cake! I brought in the cutie animals from Scootin’ By, and gave them bright red party hats.
To really set the scene, I used a Grassy Hillside Stencil as well as the new Sunray Background Stencil. I only used 1 green ink color for the grass, since I knew some of it would be covered up by grassy tufts and the sentiment. But I used 3 different yellow inks for the sunrays, to give extra dimension.
I hope you like what I’ve created, and most of all I hope it will make my little nephew happy on his birthday! Thanks for stopping by!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and thanks to Elena for being our guest!
