Seize the Birthday - Animals

Hello and happy Seize the Birthday Thursday :)!!! 


We have ANIMALS as our Toppings Option for the new challenge! Of course you can link up any newly created birthday card, if you want to.

I chose cats as my animals!


I used the fun cat stamp from Art Impressions which I have for a while. I decided to make a front panel with the cats' backside and stamped it on a white card stock in A2 size. I stamped the faces of the cats on a separate cardstock. I used Memento black ink for Copic coloring. After done with coloring I cut out the window. I used a square as my guide, which I cut using a Double Stitched Square Die from The Ton. I then glued the face side on the back of my front panel. I cut out a square from my card base using the same die and glued the front panel flat on the card base. The sentiment is from the same stamp set. I stamped it in Memento black and drew a wooden panel hanging on the wall and colored it with Copic markers. For the inside of the card I cut a panel with Double Stitched Rectangle Die, stamped the balloons and the fish from MFT and colored them with Copics as well. 
To finish off the card I added a strip of a washi tape under the cats to give them something to stand on. 


Still I think this card looks too empty, but I don't know what I can add to :)! Maybe more colors like ink blending or dry embossing?

Hope you will join us at Seize the Birthday! Stop by the challenge blog to see the gorgeous projects my teammates and our surprise party guest Cathy Roffey from Cathys Card Spot created to inspire you!

  1. This is truly delightful TaeEun and I adore those gorgeous cats and the inside is such a surprise with their cute faces peering out at you. The wall panel with the lovely balloons and fish works and the hand drawn panel round the sentiment is an inspired idea too. x
