Meerly Birthday Cards

Although the inside of my cards are usually blank, there are images that fit nicely inside. Take a look for yourself:

All of the following cards show these meerkats smiling together. Perfect when a card is being sent "from all of us."

Here is the front of this card:

Meerly a Birthday #2

   The Gang's All Meer

   Soft Sky A-2
   Basic Black 5-3/8 x 4-1/8, Scraps
   Irresistibly Yours DSP 5-1/4 x 4
   Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4, Scraps

   Archival Basic Black
   Soft Sky

Watercolor Pencils:
   Early Espresso
   Whisper White
   Basic Gray

   Die Cutting
   Fussy Cutting

   Basic Rhinestone Jewels
   Well Written Framelits Dies
   Water Painters
   Blender Pens
   Fine Tip Glue Pen
   Paper Snips

First, I watercolored the Irresistibly Yours DSP panel using Soft Sky ink. Once it dried, I wiped it down with a paper towel, adhered it to the Basic Black panel and glued it onto the card base.

I stamped several meerkats on scraps of Whisper White. I colored them with watercolor pencils and used the blender pen to blend and enrich the color. I then fussy cut them and attached them with dimensionals.

The sentiment was die cut using the Well Written Framelits Dies and scraps of Basic Black. These were adhered using the Fine Tip Glue Pen.

I added a few rhinestones for balance and bling.

I made three cards using the same ingredients. I did change the ink color of the background and the card base was changed to match it. Everything else was constant. So, card #2 above used Soft Sky, card #3 used Daffodil Delight, and card #4 used Smoky Slate.
