Fun Birthday Card

Hello Again! Today I have a cute card to share that I created using a stamp set from a company called InkyAntics. These stamp sets are themed and have several images on them that can be used for cards, layouts, just about any way you choose. In coordination, the set includes an image that is made to stamp on special honeycomb paper to create a fun 3D effect on your project.
For the front of this card I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder to give the yellow layer some dimension. All papers are Recollections from Michaels. The Elephant image is from the stamp set and colored and cut to "peek" from the frame, then popped on foam tape.
Look at the inside! Here is the honeycomb paper with coordinating stamps to make a balloon. Isn't that cute? All the images on this card came in one set. I used colored pencils for coloring the images in. So fun! There are several of these InkyAntics stamp sets as well as a variety of colors of the honeycomb paper as well. When closed, the card is only 1/8 of an inch thick, so it still fits perfectly into an envelope without any added bulk. I hope you enjoyed this card. Have a great day!!
