Harv Has a Birthday

This is Harv.  He’s a fun old geezer who’s sending birthday greetings to a guy friend.

I made a shaker card with my Impression Obsession All-In-One Frames – Square and filled it with confetti-colored beads.  The frame has a sort of ombre appearance which is the result of Copic coloring, starting with the lightest blue in the center and working outward with one step darker for each frame section:  B0000, B00, B01, B02, B04, B05.

Aside from Harv, what really dresses up this card and makes it super fun is the Die-namites Hanging Presents.  I’ve developed a serious crush on Die-namites dies lately.  Have you taken a good look at them?  Dies R Us has pages and pages of Die-namites and they’re all simply fabulous.  Cute or pretty, take your pick.  You can see the whole lot of them here.  I made my Hanging Presents colorful with Copics and added an enamel dot to each ribbon knot.  I also went over the ribbon parts of the die cut with clear Wink of Stella.  Very fun and shimmery!

Inside is this sentiment.

The inside sentiment is by Inkadinkado.  Harv is an Art Impressions Golden Oldies stamp.  I’ll sum up all this card’s ingredients in the recipe further down.

Just a reminder that there’s still time to play in our “Stitching, Real or Faux” Challenge.  Create with that theme and any die cut and then link it up.  Pretty easy!  Have a happy day!
