A Frosty Happy Birthday

Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing 2 similar Happy Birthday cards with the cute Snow Angels from Mama Elephant.

For both of the cards, I die cut the Happy Birthday out of Neenah cardstock. For the background of the card with the bears, I used Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass and Mermaid Lagoon. For the other one I used Mermaid Lagoon and Peacock Feathers. To create the effect of snow, I diluted white acrylic paint and made splatters on the background. To create shimmer spots, I also sprayed shimmer spray through the snow day stencil.

While the backgrounds were drying, I stamped all the images on Perfect Colouring paper and colored them with my copic markers:

  • Polar bears: YR20, YR21, YR000, YR01 , E50, E51, E53, B93, B95, B97, B00
  • Cat and fox: YR20, YR21, YR24, YR27, YR000, YR01, YR02, BG72, BG75, BG78

After coloring. I first adhered the Happy Birthday to the background and decided where I wanted my images to go. Then on those spots, I stamped the snow angels with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. To create the magical sparkle look of snow, I put Glossy Accents on the snow angels and Happy Birthday and tipped Prisma Glitter on top. Once that was dry, I adhered my images with foam squares. As a final touch, I added Stickles Frosted Lace to the scarfs and hat.

I hope you like these cards and it gave you inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!
