Hippo Bird-Day

The card I'm sharing today looks like a shaker card and could've easily been made one too but I decided not to add the acetate and see how it turns out...I love these cute hippos from MFT Stamps and I have tried my best to keep the focus on them by not creating a busy background as well as adding some dimension using foam tape....

I started by deciding the space where I wanted my rectangle 'window' and die cut it from a white top layer...I then lightly marked that space on the card front and sponged in some Distress Inks to create the background...I have used twisted citron and squeezed lemonade ink shades..

I stamped the sentiment on the top panel and then adhered some adhesive foam tape behind this panel and adhered it to the card front...

On a separate piece of white cardstock,I stamped and coloured in the images of the Hippos,the cupcakes,the balloons as well as a little bird...I cut these images out and adhered most of them using liquid glue and the baby hippo using some adhesive foam squares...

I then adhered small clear star sequins all over the background and a few clear confetti sequins to embellish the top layer...


Thank you so much for stopping by to take a look at my card today...Hope these Happy Hippos made you happy too...Happy crafting...!!
