Fetch-ing You a Happy Birthday Card by Jennifer Jackson

Fetching Birthday Wishes!

Hello! Jen here with a fun dog themed Birthday Card! I never have enough birthday cards so I've been trying to make an effort to create a few extras to have on hand for this year! I've been having fun pulling out stamps I haven't worked with in a while to make them too! For this card I used the cute Labrador image from our Fetching Friendship Stamp Set. I colored the pup, hat and gifts from the set using copic markers and then I cut the images out using the coordinating Fetching Friendship Die Set. For the background I created a fun watercolor splash using similar colors of distress inks. I squished them onto my nonstick craft sheet and spritzed them with water. Then I used a piece of acetate to pick up the color from the mat and squished that onto a piece of watercolor paper to transfer the colors onto the background. This is a fun way to get a watercolor look like this and you can control where the colors go a bit better.

I framed this watercolor piece with some purple cardstock and assembled the card together. I used the sentiment, also from the Fetching Friendship Stamp Set and embossed it with white on a black banner to layer behind the dog. The banner was cut out using our  Frames & Flags Die Set. Then I finished it out with a piece of blue twine! Perfect for a cheerful birthday card! I'll definitely send this to someone who loves dogs too! 

I hope you enjoyed this project today!
