Hi again! I’m back today with a really fun Reverse Confetti birthday card celebrating all this sun we’ve been having where I’m at.
For today’s card, I started by stamping the images I knew I wanted to use from Hippo Pool Party and colored them with my copic markers. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and switched gears to figure out my background.
I also knew that I really wanted to create a little scene in the middle of the Center Circle Cover Panel so I pulled that out and ultimately cut it from yellow cardstock. Then I used my Trinity Stamps embossed edge circle stack to cut a couple circles that fit inside. The larger one from white which I inked up orange, and another from light blue which I inked up with the Newton’s Nook waves & splashes stencil for a little texture.
Moving in to assembly, I cut another blue panel to cover my white card base that matches the blue waves circle. I popped the frame up with foam tape. Then I glued the circles together and added them to the frame with foam tape as well. Last, I added my images with a combination of foam squares and liquid glue. I stamped a wonderfully punny sentiment from the Hippo Pool Party set and cut it with a Pink & Main sentiment strip die and added it to the card front with foam squares.
I finished my card off with some glossy accents on all the necessary places, like the beach ball, glasses, umbrella dots and, last but not least, the hippo’s eyes.
This is such a fun card and just perfect for summer birthdays that you might have coming up very soon!
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
