Have you checked out the Awesome Otters on page 11 of the Sale-A-Bration brochure? They are so cute. For my first card I’ve combined a few techniques – masking, blending and fussy cutting – to create this fun birthday card.
I got the design idea for this card from page 26 of the Annual Catalogue. Using a scrap piece of grid paper I roughly torn it in two and adhered it to my card front with temporary adhesive leaving a big gap in-between to create my ‘river’. I applied Pacific Point and Pool Party ink with my Blending Brushes in the ‘gap’.
I originally stamped, coloured and cut the otter lying on his back then thought he looked a bit lonely so stamped, coloured and cut out two more friends to join him. I then went back and directly stamped the two otters coming out of the water on my ‘river’ and adhered the coloured images on top of the images stamped. Their party hats have also been fussy cut and adhered on top.
For the inside I stamped directly to the card and coloured it. I’ve gone with Ivory Stampin Blends for their tummies and Crumb Cake for the rest of the body. The water is outlined with Pool Party.
