As many of you know, I’ve been a bit of a mess with the loss of my sweet dog, Biscuit last week. So today, I’m sharing a belated birthday card that I’ve made for one of my dearest friends.
I thought the white rabbit looking at his pocket watch from the Carabelle Studio Alice’s Advetures in Wonderland Stamp Set would be perfect for a belated birthday card. Since only the upper half of the rabbit is depicted in the stamp, I knew I wanted to create something he could pop out of or stand behind. Then I remembered I had the fanciful Katzelkraft Torn Paper Stamp Set.
Taking cues from the fabulous colors of the Cheshire Cat and Alice’s blue dress from Alice in Wonderland, I used the following Copic colors:
Swirly hole: BV01, BV02, RV55
Torn curled paper: B000, B01, B02 and B04
Shadow areas of paper: N1 and N4
Then for the white rabbit, I kept the coloring simple using the following:
Rabbit: W0 and W1 with R30 blush and B01 eyes
Vest and pocket watch: Y35 and YR24
Pocket watch glass: B00
Collar and cuffs: N1 and N2
To create a little dimension, I popped up the fussy cut rabbit up on foam dots, and I used an X-Acto blade to cut out the bottom part of the torn paper hole to tuck the rabbit behind so that it would look like the rabbit was bursting forth from the magical Alice in Wonderland world. Not only to cover up this little surgery, but also to hide the bleed through of the Copic coloring of the torn paper hole, I lined the back side of this card front with some teal card stock.
I hand wrote the card front sentiment, “I’m late! I’m late! For a very important date!” using an Ultra Fine Point Sharpie Marker in Teal (to coordinate with the blue paper curls) and added a super fine shadow to the letters with a Copic Multiliner Pen in 0.05 pt.
Then to finish off the inside of the card, I used stamps from the Power Poppy “Party Time” stamp set. I stamped out the huge cake slice with Lawn Fawn Premium Dye Ink in Hippo and the sentiment, “Happy Birthday” with Momento Tuxedo Black Ink.
