I decided to use my new Verve Stamps to make Jordan's birthday card and invitations this year. Here is his birthday card. I used my new Copic markers I got for Christmas on the images. I'm still not very good with them yet, but I did ok. I used the Birthday Bash set of stamps from Verve and some Sassafras Lass number stamps. On the front of the card, I stamped the balloon image twice on the card and then again on white cardstock and colored them with Copics. Then, I cut out the colored balloons and pop-dotted them on top of the stamped images on the card. I stamped the numbers on white cardstock and cut them out. I added crystal stickles on top of them to get some bling going.
On the inside of the card, I used the cake image on white cardstock and colored it with Copics. Then, I stamped "Make A Wish" inside the cake image. This way, I didn't smear the sentiment ink while coloring. Finally, I stamped 3 star images on white cardstock, colored, and pop-dotted them on top of the cake.
I used the same set of Verve stamps for the invitations and used the same techniques. I love how the sentiments fit inside the cake image. On this card, I used "Birthday Bash" inside the cake image. I printed the party details on my printer and attached it inside the card.
Thanks for looking! Hope this inspires you to make something cute!
