Hello and welcome to yet another challenge at Seize the Birthday! The challenge is all about making birthday projects, and you can choose to go with the topping, or, since it is optional, you can also go without it. This time, we have a new topping, ‘For Kids’, selected by Lindsey.
And here’s what I made –
I started with making the background, or the water for the fishes. I used two pieces of watercolor paper, applied the watercolors and left it to dry. Once dry, I used MFT Ocean Waves die to cut out pieces of the waves. For adhering these waves, I added foam tape on the tip of the waves and glued the bottom of the waves directly to the white card base.
Meanwhile, I stamped the fish and the water plants from the MFT Gill Friends using a light grey ink and then used Polychromos pencils for coloring the them. I then fussy cut them. On the card, I used foam tape on some and directly adhered the others.
For the sentiment, I die cut a mint colored cardstock using Winnie & Walter’s Sketchy Thoughts and then stamped the sentiment, from MFT Gill Friends. I foam mounted this on the card base. And that’s my card!
Hope you are inspired! Checkout the Seize the Birthday challenge blog for more inspiration from our Surprise Party Guest Annie and our wonderful design team! If making a kids’ card isn’t in your agenda, you are always welcome to make any kind of birthday project and join us!
