Happy Birthday Card

Hi there! Elena here, and so thrilled to be back here to share with you a fun card featuring Neat and Tangled products.

I used a set that I illustrated for the latest release, Yo Ho Ho. I drew a boy and a girl pirate, and also included some cute animals who are dressed up for pirate fun!  For today’s card, I made a peekaboo opening using the Making Waves die set, and placed the pull-toy-ship on the inside of the card. Because of its size, it looks like it’s floating in the distance. I got this idea from a card that a fellow Design Team Keeway made last month, I loved it so much. She had the cat and dog at the forefront, instead of the boy and girl. The curved banner is from Mermazing, another Neat and Tangled set, and fits top of the curve so perfectly. I carefully cut away the sentiment that was inside the banner to begin with, and now I can use it for so many other cards. If you decide to cut apart your own stamps, just be careful! But it isn’t as scary as it seems.

I hope you like what I’ve shared here today!
