Colorful Birthday card for CC164

Colorful Birthday card for CC164.

Howdy! It’s time for a new Color Challenge (CC164) at the MFT Blog. I created a colorful Birthday card with the cute gorilla from the BB Picture Perfect Party Animals.

The color palette for CC164 is so bright and beautiful! Check it out below!

At first I thought of creating a card with flowers, but after going through my stash I was inspired to create a colorful Birthday card instead. I started by die cutting one of the sheets from the Poppin’ Polka Dots Paper Pad with the largest die from the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 1 Die-namics. Next, I adhered the panel to my A2 card base of Smooth White Card Stock.

After that I stamped the image of the gorilla on a piece of Copic friendly card stock and colored it with the following markers:

  • Gorilla: E59, E55, E53, E51, E37, E35, E31
  • Birthday hat: RV09, RV06, RV04
  • Background: BG18, BG15, BG13
  • Garland: R22, R20, BG02, BG01, Y17, Y15

As always, I added the fur detail with Prismacolor pencils. I also drew the dots on the hat with a white gel pen.

The sentiment which I stamped directly onto the frame, die cut with the Polaroid Shaker Frame Die-namics, is from the Balloon Besties stamp set.

Before adhering the frame to my cardbase, I glued a bunch of leaves die cut with the Grand Greenery dies to the back of it. As a last touch, I added four white enamel dots.
