Happy Birthday with Vanessa

Hello everybody! Vanessa here with another card using the new cute stamps and die-cuts! 

I can't help it, if something is as adorable as the little creatures from the new Evelin T Designs sets, I have to use it again and again. Here I created a fun background with the Typecast: Cary Numbers Cutaways for my focal image:

I like the subtle look when die-cutting something from a panel and adhering it to a card the same color. After I had die-cut the numbers from Kraft cardstock and adhered it to my Kraft cardbase, I stamped the giraffe from Welcome to the Family with Evelin T Designs and the balloon from LS Exclusives: So Tweet with Evelin T Designs onto white cardstock. Then I colored them with Copics and die-cut them with the matching dies. I adhered them to the card with foam tape. Now I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of yellow cardstock, trimmed it and adhered it. Finally, I added sequins to the card.

I hope you like today's inspiration! Thank you so much for stopping by!
