I stamped the image in Versamark on mustard cardstock and heat embossed with Teddy Brown. I took an Aqua Pen and filled it with bleach and colored the leaves of the image. I cut and embossed the card front with Spellbinders Fanciful Lattice. The image was then stamped again on white cardstock and I colored just the animal areas using the following Copics: E33, R20, YR21 and YR24.
The big cat area was cut out of the embossed image and the same part of the image was cut and embossed from the white image, using Spellbinders Standard Circles Large. The white image was placed in the "window" and was taped down from the back.
I then edged another piece of mustard cardstock with 3/4" Tear-ific Tape, after removing the protective backing, the latticed card front was centered on the edged piece and Goldenrod velvet glitter was applied to the exposed sticky edges.
I continued cutting and embossing the other little animals and they were attached in their places with Dimensional Dots.
The happy birthday was die cut and then heat embossed with Teddy Brown. I attached the sentiment with Dimensional Glue. Friend was cut and embossed and then I ran Memento Cantaloupe ink over the top, before heat embossing with some Clear Detail to give it a bit of a shine, like the happy birthday. This was also attached with Dimensional Dots.
The card front was layered on a mustard card base and a strip of Diamond Mesh was attached to the left hand side for some autumnal bling and to complete the card.
I enjoyed putting this card together for Donna! Happy Birthday dear Friend!
