Otter Birthday // Card Creations

March 30, 2017

Hello fellow crafters! I am sharing another card with you all today and of course it has a pun! Let's dive into this adorable portrait style card. I used heavy weight white cardstock cut to 4 1/4" x 11" and scored at 5 1/2". Then, I used some DCWV cardstock in a beautiful dark blue. I cut that layer to 4" x 5 1/4". 

I used the MFT otter stamp set for all of the images and the sentiment on this card. I cannot stop using these precious little otters! I stamped all of the images with Staz On black ink using my stamping tool for better impressions. I'm really looking for a new waterproof black ink, so if you have any suggestions please let me know! I stamped them and lightly watercolored each image and lastly I fussy cut them out.

The otter is of course the star of this card, so I raised him up on foam dots. I used this Doodlebug Designs mini doily to give a pop of color behind my little friend. I think all otters should have names, so let's name this one Jerry. He's just waving hello to the birthday pal who will be receiving the card. I just cannot get over how cute this little guys are! To add another pop of color, I decided to watercolor a couple fish.

Lastly, to complete the card I added a sentiment strip. I used Memento black ink for the sentiment to get a crisp image. This was a really fun card to make and again I love the otters! Thank you so much for stopping by!
