Post 134: Happy Birthday Card (Breakfast In Bed)

Hi friends!!

I'd like to share a fun, happy and cute birthday card I created in the morning. The lil scene is that of a breakfast in bed for the birthday boy/girl :) Who doesn't like a fresh cupcake with some hot tea ? 
This is a side folding standard A2 size card.

Synopsis of the Process:

I stamped images from the Lawn Fawn Best Pun Ever and the Lawn Fawn Love n Breakfast stamp sets onto snippets of iris cardstock with Ranger's Archival Jet Black ink. Wanted the images to be bright and cheerful so colored directly with zig markers. Then fussy cut the images. A fancy border was punched into the front of the card base by using a martha stewart chevron fence punch. Some ink blending was done onto the card front to create a soft blue look. Then the fussy cut images were arranged and pasted onto the card front with Tombow glue. (I added the flowers to the kettle to make it look bright and cheery and in keeping with the spring theme) The sentiment is punched out alphabets from the martha stewart alphabet punch, they were adhered in a fun zig zag way. To finish off, a few sparkly sequins were added. 

List of Supplies:

1. Lawn Fawn Stamp set - Best Pun Ever
2. Lawn Fawn Stamp set - Love N Breakfast
3. Martha Stewart Alphabets Punch
4. Martha Stewart Chevron Fence Punch
5. Iris Cardstock 250 gsm
6. Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens

8. Tim Holtz Mini Distress Inkpad- Peacock Feathers 
9. Dress my craft- Angel mix sequins
10. Tombow Mono multi glue

Here are a few pictures of the card:
