Clean and Simple | Tropical Birthday ft MFT and Mama Elephant

Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.

Today I wanted to share another card that I created using the smaller stamps in a set. This one is a mashup of My Favorite Things and Mama Elephant. I wanted to create something clean and simple but still fun, and who doesn't like to think of their birthday as a mini vacation? I know I do.

So thinking of a mini vacation makes me think of somewhere warm and tropical and so naturally it just came to this.

To begin, I stamped the parrot from MFT's "Polynesian Paradise" and the branch from Mama Elephant's "Lunar Extras" with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock, coloured them with Copics and fussy cut them out.

I used Tumbled Glass Distress ink to sponge a background directly to the front of my standard A2 sized card base and stamped the birthday greeting with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Once the background was dry, I adhered the branch flat on the panel, then raised the parrot up on some foam tape and placed him on the branch.

To finish it off, I added a few enamel dots in coordinating colours around the stamped images.

I hope you liked today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't already, please follow me on the right side bar or over on Facebook, so you don't miss any future posts. Drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.
