This is for someone who has a birthday at Halloween. I began with a square card and cut it so that a semicircle was formed on the part of the card that was away from the fold. The top of the card was then scored to form an easel card.
I covered the base and the front of the card with a happy birthday designer paper and attached orange peel off around the edge of the base. A circle of co-ordinating patterned paper was matted onto orange card and fixed to the centre of the base. 'Best wishes' was cut in an arc and also matted onto orange card and then attached with foam pads to form the stop for the easel. Five card candi were added to the edge of the inner circle.
The image from Joanna Sheen's House Mouse Happy Birthday set was coloured using Promarkers and then cut out using a Spellbiners scalloped circle die. A blend of distress inks were used round the edge before the die was removed. A similar shape was cut from orange mirri card and this was attached behind the image on a slight rotation. This was then matted and layered onto the brown patterned paper and orange card and attached to the lower half of the card front.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Joanna Sheen - so sweet
I Love Promarkers - orange and brown
Papertake Weekly - 2 by 2 ( 2 characters, 2 candles, 2 designer papers)
QKR Stampede - anything goes with circles
Stampin with the Dragon - circles
Without words - pumpkins (the colour)
