My Groovy Slimline Birthday Card

 My Groovy Slimline Birthday Card

Hello Crafty Friends! It's Laurie here! I am sharing my Groovy Slimline Birthday Card using Doll Detectives by Paper Nest Dolls for my Design Team Inspiration Card. This bundle comes with 6 digital stamps including 2 boys, 2 girls, a dog, and a van.

The Details of My Card

For my card, I decided that I would create a CAS (clean and simple) slimline card to fit all my cute characters. So, I layered my PNG stamps in Word to create my scene and then coloured them with my Copic markers.

I thought it would be fun to add some flowers to the sky to add interest. So, I took my digital van and blew up only the flowers, coloured them and fussy cut them out. You have to love being able to do that with digital stamps! Once they were cut out, I outlined them in a black multiliner to cover up any areas where my fussy cutting wasn’t perfect. It also allowed them to pop from the page.

For my sentiment, I decided to cut it up to fit on the side of the van like a banner of sorts with another flower and a sequin. The only die I used was the stitched one to cut out my scene. My finishing touch was a couple of other sequins.
