Belated Birthday Card // Mint Owl Studio Stamps

October 06, 2016

Hello friends! It has been a long time since I have shared a card with you all, so today I wanted to share one with you. This fun little card is for my father's birthday which was earlier this month, but we celebrated it after his actual day. I thought that this was the perfect chance to try out these brand new stamps from Mint Owl Studios. I purchased this little punny stamp set from Tupelo Designs LLC. The set features a few moose themed sentiments and could be used for many occasions!

This card starts out with a base of 110 lb. white cardstock cut to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4" on the long side. This is the size for a standard A2 sized card. Next, I cut this fun yellow-orange polka dot paper from My Mind's Eye to 5 1/4" x 4". This allows a small border along the outside edge. Then, I got into stamping!

I stamped all of my images on to some more 110 lb. white cardstock using my Staz-on Jet Black ink. This ink is ideal when you plan on watercoloring images, but there are some alternative non-water soluble inks. All of the stamps I used are from the same Mint Owl Studio stamp set. I can't wait to stamp more of these little critters for more cards! I didn't do any fancy watercoloring on these pieces. I just used two shades of brown on my little moose and then tried to match the present images to the colors of the card. 

I layered a 4 inch doily from Wilton, then a really bright blue tag on top of that to give some interest behind my stamped images. I like how both of these elements in particular add different textures to the card. I considered possibly using some foam adhesive to add some dimension behind some of my cut out pieces, but thought that it would make it a little too busy.

To complete the card, I added a few of these white pearls on the top left and the bottom right. It adds some more movement to the card and adds some more elements. That pretty much sums up this adorable birthday card. I hope you enjoyed it and got some inspiration. How often do you find yourself making belated birthday cards? Thanks for stopping by!
