Purr-ect Birthday Card by May Guest Designer Jeannean Marshall

I am loving the look of slimline cards so I had to make some birthday cards featuring Newton's Birthday Bash Stamp Set!

The card stock base starts from an 8 x 9 inch paper with the center folded at 4 inches on the 8-inch edge. This size is perfect to fit into a standard business-sized envelope.  The top panel is about 1/4 inch smaller than the front of the card stock base.

I'm stamping my scenes and masking images to make the background wall. This confetti wall is made by sponging die ink all over and then again through the confetti stencil. (For more dimensional flooring, first draw the horizon line of the floor where it is meeting the wall. Then draw the wooden floor using a ruler by making a starting point higher than the actual horizon/floor line, and start drawing the planking right below that horizon line, down to the edge of the card panel.

Each line of planking is made by lining up the dot at the starting point above the horizon/floor line and fanning out your ruler along the bottom edge of the card front. Then color in to resemble wooden panels.)

Images are colored with Copic markers. Grey Copic shadows around images and sparkle pen are added for dimension.

Finally, black pen is used around the outside edge of the cover panel before it is adhered to the card base.
