Awesome Otters, General Cards

Awesome Otter Birthday

It’s Friday! Yeah, I made it through the week!  And to celebrate, what better way than with a bright and cheerful Birthday Card using the Awesome Otter Stamp Set.

I paired the Awesome Otters Stamp set with the a new bright and fun set of Designer Series Papers called Sunshine and Rainbows.  Both of these products are part of the FREE Sale-a-bration event that is happening NOW and ending on February 28th.  You can choose either of these products as your FREE item with a minimum purchase of $50.00.  (There are more details about Sale-a-Bration below!)

Plus this is a great therapy card as you get a chance to do a little bit of coloring!  I chose to color with my Stampin’ Blends Markers, but you can also color with pencils and a blender pen.

I thought this polka dot paper was perfect to use as I could match the otter’s little hat to the paper too by coloring that my Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Did you notice that I added a little texture to the background by using the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder.  It’s a subtle pattern, but it adds a little interest to the card.

If you’d like to make this card, you will need these supplies:

  • Awesome Otters Stamp Set
  • Layering Circles Dies
  • Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder
  • Punches: Banner Pick-A-Punch, 2 ¼” Circle Punch (Retired)

Don’t forget that the outside of the card isn’t the only thing that your recipient will see….they will be checking out the inside to see your message, but first they will have to rip open the beautiful envelope.
