Fire Fighter Birthday

>> Monday, July 8, 2013

Happy Monday! Hope everyone enjoyed the weekend. I just got back from a week in Virginia visiting family for Independence Day. And I had a wonderful time, especially with my two grand kids!!

Today I have a Birthday card that features our Fire Fighter Gear.

I started by stamping my image in Memento Black ink, coloring it with Copics, die cutting it with a nestie, sponging the edges while still in the die with Real Red ink, then added a red and black layer. I stamped the image a second time, but only colored the fire fighter hat, then fussy cut it and added it to the image for some dimension. The background was created by stamping the Easy Dot background in Real Red and Barely Banana inks. Some banners were die cut and added beneath the main image. The birthday greeting was stamped in Memento Black ink, die cut with a nestie and layered on red and black banners. Some tiny red stars were added to finish the look.

There's still time to join this week's Summer Fun/Sun challenge!! You can see details here.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Until next time,
