Today's card was inspired by the Can You Case It? birthday card challenge!
I'm a sucker for cute little animals and MFT Stamps has had some real winners come out recently. I decided to combine some sets to create this cutie! I stamped each animal from three separate sets and cut them out with my Brother Scan N Cut 2. I colored them with my Copics after they were cut. I cut my film strip from some white cardstock and set everything to the side.
Next, I heat embossed my sentiment in white on a card panel. I used 3 separate colors of pink distress ink to blend my background in an ombre pattern. Because my sentiment was heat embossed, it resists the ink I sponged over the top! I adhered my animals into my film strip and then used foam tape to pop up the whole piece on my card panel. I added a sprinkling of sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and used some clear Wink of Stella to finish the whole thing off.
If you look closely, you can see the shimmer on the balloon, heart, and icing on the cake!
I'm also going to be adding this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge and Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge. Both are Anything Goes!
