Birthday Wishes for Digi Doodle Studios

Hello friends!  🙂   Happy Labor Day!  I hope you’ve enjoyed your weekend and I hope you get a nice relaxing Labor Day Monday included with it!  I’m enjoying a nice relaxing long weekend hanging out with hubby.

I have a very sweet card to share with you today using an adorable image from Digi Doodle Studios:


Awe!  Such a cute pup, isn’t it?!  I love how sweet this one turned out with the colors which I thought would be great for a little one’s birthday.  I have used this adorable image called Jasper’s Cupcake for my card plus some really fun digital papers from the Let’s Celebrate Digital Background Paper Collection!

I based my card around the colors of those papers and I just love the little pops of blue in them, so I found some cardstock to match up with them and started to put together my card design.

I layered the “Birthday Streamers” paper over a piece of blue cardstock and then sprayed it with some “Shimmer Craft Spray” (Which I’ll be sharing in an up-coming video so stay tuned!)  Then I mounted these layers onto a pink A2 sized top folding card base.

I then took a strip of the “Birthday Chevron” paper and wrapped some white organdy ribbon around it and attached it to the front of the card base.  I added my colored image panel onto a piece of blue cardstock and then mounted this over a piece of pink cardstock that was cut out with a stitched scallop rectangle die.  Lastly I added a sentiment and punched it out with a circle punch and added a punched out scallop circle in pink behind it and popped it up with foam tape over the design.  As you can see both of the image panel and the circle sentiment was sponged around the edges very lightly with some blue ink too.  (I almost forgot that I took some white ink and sponged around the blue edges of the cardstock too!)

I then added my ribbon bow to the right side of the card and glued a pink pearl in the center of it and added on the sequins randomly over the card.  I really like how that blue frames this design and picks up the blues from the papers too.


Here’s a closer view of the image and how I’ve colored it in!  I just adore that pup and it looked like he needed a few extra “spots”, so I added one on his back and then gave him a darker colored tail and a different colored paw too!

After coloring this up, I took a glitter pen and covered the pink balloon as well as the frosting on the cupcake for a bit of shimmer.  You’ve got to make that frosting look sugary right?!  I wish you can see the shimmer more in the background because it looks really cool!  You can sort of see it at the top of the photo.  However, if you check out my up-coming video, I’m hoping the camera will do it justice!


I hope you’ve enjoyed my little party pup card here today!
