Octopus Birthday Card
Now that Father’s Day is behind us we can move up to some summery birthday cards!
The inspiration for this card came from that great nautical themed patterned paper by Fancy Pants called Down by the Shore. When I saw all thos sea critters I knew the perfect stamp set to coordinate it with, Lawn Fawn’s Critters in the Sea of course! I started with Gina K. Design’s Cranberry Tart card stock. I love that deep red.
Isn’t that octopus adorable? I stamped him onto red card stock and cut him out. I used the birthday hat from Hats Off To You and stamped it onto patterned paper and cut it out. I added red stickles to the hat for a little shine. I then used Spellbinders circle dies to cut it out.
The sentiment also comes from the Hats Off To You stamp set. I stamped it onto white card stock and cut it out and the blue mat using My Favorite Things dies. I added a bit of rick rack for some texture and was done.
I hope you enjoyed today’s project. Thanks so much for stopping by!
