MFT Sketch Challenge | Happy Birthday To Roo

*This is my second post for the day, please see below for my Simon Says Stamp Sending Sunshine post*
Hello there, today I am back to share another card with you as a guest designer for My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge. We are on sketch 385 and I have to say, this was a bit of a challenge for me! I don't often add so many layers to my card and I did flip the side panel to be on the other side, but in the end, I really like how the card came out!

I started out by creating the background piece. I took a panel of white cardstock and using the Cloud Stencil and Broken China Distress Oxide Ink, I added some subtle clouds to the panel. I took a strip of paper from the Black & White Stripes Pattern Paper Pad and added this to the left hand side, along with a thin strip of black cardstock. I took the Grassy Fields dies and die cut these from green cardstock. I then blended a little Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron Distress Ink on to them to give some depth. These were added to the cloud side of the panel and then the whole panel was added to a 5" x 5" white card base with tape runner.
I took the kangaroo image from the new Aussie Animals Stamp Set, along with the balloons from the Beary Special Birthday stamp set. These were stamped with black ink on to white cardstock and coloured using Copic Markers. They were then die cut out with the coordinating dies. The balloons were added to the card with tape runner and then the kangaroo added with a combination of tape runner and thin foam tape (to the stop half of his body).
I took the sentiment from the Aussie Animals set and stamped this on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. This was cut in to strips and added to the card with thin foam tape.

  1. It’s adorable Michelle and it is so perfectly balanced! I think all the different elements combined beautifully in the design. Those Aussie Animals are too cute!! Super sweet card, Lisa xx

  2. So adorable! I love the kangoroo!

  3. I absolutely love it. I think you've done really well with all the layers, they fit nicely and don't overwhelm each other as layers can do. Brilliantly done - and that kangaroo is hilarious! xx
