Birthday Card for Patrik

Hello everyone :-D  

Yesterday I made a Birthday Card for Patrik. Patrik is my nephew, son of my dear cousin, beautiful sweet little boy, who will turn 7 this Thursday.

For my card layout I used a beautiful sketch093 with a twist from {heart} sketches by Imke Ludvig. Twist was to make birthday card. There was also an inspirational color board, but I didn´t use it.

Card dimensions are 98 mm x 139 mm (3 7/8" x 5 1/2").

I used one bird from From the Heart Stamps 'Flappy Birthday Birdbrain' digital stamp set, which includes lovely image and four sentiments.

Image is paper pieced and it has two layers.
I printed one image on white cardstock paper and other on white paper (160 grams). After printing, I colored image on white paper, fussy cut it, colored edges with black fine liner and glued pieces over the image printed on white cardstock paper.
I also added some transparent varnish on eyelids, beak, belly dots and balloon to create glossy accents and to pop up parts of image.

List of supplies:
  • From the Heart Stamps 'Flappy Birthday Birdbrain' 
  • Gingham Prints blue from Little Llama Shoppe (these were free gift in July 2014)  
  • digital paper 'Blue Stars'
  • dark blue cardstock paper 
  • white cardstock paper
  • white paper 160 grams 
  • colored pencils (yellow)
  • white pencil
  • Koh-i-noor Mondeluz aquarell colored pencils (yellow 3, orange 5, light blue 18, dark blue 19) 
  • Koh-i-noor universal white pencil for writing on gloss surfaces

  • double sided strong adhesive tape  
  • UHU universal glue 
  • white water based glue 
  • transparent varnish with extra gloss
