Snappy Birthday Wishes {Avery Elle}

 Hello friends, 

I have  a card on the Avery Elle blog this week featuring the new Oh Snap stamp set, Hooray Elle-ments die and Easy Layers 1 Elle-ments die. 

I just adore this snappy crocodile. He's so festive and we have lots of celebrations planned for this summer. To make the card, I die cut a panel of Neenah Solar White card stock with the large stitched die from the Easy Layers 1 Elle-ments set. Next, I blended the die cut panel with two shades of Distress Oxide inks- Worn Lipstick and Dried Marigold. I spattered the panel with white ink and set it aside to dry. 

I stamped the crocodile with black ink, colored him with Copic Markers, and die cut the image using the coordinating Elle-ments die. I blended a small rectangle of Distress Heavystock with more Distress Oxide Inks- Worn Lipstick, Dried Marigold, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron and Salvaged Patina. I die cut the Hooray Elle-ments from the blended panel. 

I adhered the Hooray die cut at the bottom of the large blended panel and set the crocodile on top of the die cut. I pulled out the Speech Bubble stamp set and created a speech bubble to hold the "It's Your Birthday" sentiment. I added a few flat star sequins and attached the completed panel to an A2 card base. 

Thanks for stopping by!
