29 & Holding

Good morning everyone! It's Cassie here, and I've got a fun card for you all today. Today's card is especially fun for me because it's my dad's birthday card! Today is his actual birthday-what better way to celebrate than a blog post! :)

Here's a look at todays card
This card was fun to make. I love pulling pieces from past sets to put together an adorable scene. I started, as I often do, with a stitched rectangle card base. I also die cut a stitched heart from some Neenah Solar White cardstock. I took the (adorably sweet) sloth from Sloth Hang Out set and stamped him on the center of the heart. I made sure that I didn't ink up the ends of the tree limb because I wanted to extend them to the end of the heart, which I did with a Copic multiliner. I applied Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to the edges of the heart with a blender, and Chipped Sapphire to the card base panel. I love these colors together! And, my dad's favorite color is blue so it's perfect in that aspect too.
After the sloth and tree limb were colored, I stamped and colored a bunch of the presents from the I Moose You stamp set and a birthday hat from the Party Pals stamp set. I popped the heart up with some foam tape after splattering some white paint on the card base. Then I attached the present balloons and drew lines for the strings. The final touch was to stamp the sentiment from the Snarky Sentiments set. I love that it says 29 & holding, with a picture of a sloth hanging onto a tree. Too cute! I also added a couple white accents with my white gelly roll pen.

That's it for today! I hope you liked the card. There are so many fun ways to pair the Snarky Sentiments set with loads of the other stamps sets- I can't wait to try more combos! Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you again with another card!
