Hi, friends! Good to see you again. I’m back again to share another handmade card with you. Today’s card is a birthday card.
The good thing about online card challenges is even when they end, they are still out there to take inspiration from. I like to do that a lot… and not worry about the stress of linking up a project. So I was totally inspired by a closed challenge today to put this card together. The challenge? Last week’s “humor” / fun challenge from the Simon Says Stamp! Wednesday challenge.
The challenge totally inspired me to dig into my tub of my Simon stamps, which is actually a lot of older stamps. In it was this silly little Birthday Farm Animals set from Simon that I used for this card. I am almost certain, well, positive, it’s retired, but it’s still a darn cute stamp set that deserves to be inked up on occasion. 🙂
I have dies that go with the stamp. I noticed a couple of the dies totally had some matching up problems that I never realized before. (Trust me, I’ve had this set for a long time! I’m slapping my head over not realizing it before.) Still, I still used them to cut the goat and chicken but used my scissors to even things up. Hopefully, it’s not too obvious. It was a pretty easy fix and all…. and a whole lot easier than fussy cutting the whole image.
Going for the fun part of this challenge, I added wiggle eyes to a couple of the critters. I just wanted them to look super goofy! And I think I was successful there. Ha!
I also played with the sentiment stamps a little to add to the fun. I even used a sentiment inside the card that says, “Got Cupcake?” It made me chuckle at least.
Ok. That’s it for me. I hope you liked today’s card! I’ll be back later with another card. Thank you so much for stopping by.
