Happy Birthday

Hi stampers,

I have another card that I made using the current CAS(E) this Sketch! layout. I actually made this one before yesterday's card. This one took a little longer as there are more layers and I used a craft knife to cut out the windows of the bus.


This is such a fun and cute stamp set by Avery Elle. I stamped the bus and it's party goers, and the other images using Memento tuxedo black ink and colored them with Copics. After cutting everything out using the corresponding set dies, my plan was to pop them up over the cloudy paper. I decided it would look great if I cut the windows out. It wasn't difficult, just took a little patience. The orange panel is cut with the Avery Elle Burst Elements die. I used a Die-namics Stitched circle die to cut the circle in the Burst die. The Stitched cloud die is from Lawn Fawn.

I'm also posting this birthday card to the current Seize the Birthday challenge, where the topping is Vibrant Colors.

The inside is super simple with a piece of the cloudy paper and a sentiment from another Avery Elle set.

  1. Oh, this is so fun! Fabulous take on the sketch!

  2. It seems the critter friends are having a great time! Awesome mix of the dies for the background and the open windows make a big difference!
