Magnalicious Birthday Card

I have fallen in love with Magnolia Stamp's Edwin and Tilda. As such I ordered several items from them. I have used Edwin wants a Hug and Sweetie Tilda on this card. Here they are decorating for someone's birthday. I thought that it looked like Edwin could be holding something, so I wanted to try this idea. I had to make this a large card because everything wouldn't fit on the 4X6 size. Here's the pic:


I don't have the wonderful coloring techniques that the Magnalicious DT use, but it didn't turn out too bad. The background paper was double-sided. I cut an inch off of the bottom and reversed it to look like a wall and floor. I used the brown side of a double-sided ribbon to imitate wood trim. The sentiment is a chipboard shape that coordinates with the Art Philosophy cricut cartridge. I colored it with a copic marker (G94). The stamp also comes with the cricut cartridge set. I added distress stickles for dimension. The gift is just a square of shiny paper. I added ribbon to it so that it would like like a present. The banner is hand-cut pennants. I used small alphabet stickers from Creative Memories. I cut holes in the pennants with my Big Bite and strung them on bakers twine. I glitter embossed a brad to make the banner hang on the "wall". I used foam squares to pop everything up for dimension. It looked better than just putting them flat on the card. For the Crafty Boots challenge there are stars, stripes, and dots on my card.
Here are the challenges that I found to enter:

WOW, this is a great 'scene-captured' card, what a great idea to use the stamps in other way (I love when people think different about obvious things while crafting). You've put so much work into this card! Very inspiring! Thank you for joining us at the Celebrate the Occasion challenge and hope to see you back again. Hugs
