Party Puffins Birthday Card

 I made this card as a customer thank you card for one of my customers who purchased, among other things, Old Olive stamp pad, Gray Granite card stock, and the Party Puffins stamp set.  I like to make my customers individualized thank you cards using the products they’ve purchased.  I thought the combination of the Old Olive and Gray Granite was a good foundation for a masculine birthday card.

I stamped the puffins in Memento Black and then colored some of the parts in with Stampin Blends.  I wanted the “birthday boy” to have a little extra pizzazz, so I applied some Wink of Stella over his body.  I didn’t want a bow on this card, so I made a knot in some Old Olive baker’s twin (retired) and put it in the upper corner.

This little guy is carrying a nice birthday present for the birthday boy.  I colored him in the same way as I did the other puffin.  The fish present was colored with Stampin Blends as well and then was fussy cut and attached using a mini dimensional for a bit of dimension.

The sentiment was stamped using Old Olive.

The inside of the card features a sentiment stamped with Old Olive as well as a birthday cake that was colored in with Stampin Blends.  I filled in the frosting using Wink of Stella to give it some shimmer.
