Birthday Wishes by Karen Day

Hello Ai fans!
I have found myself in need of a handful of masculine cards recently!  I pulled out one of the Ai clear stamp sets called Birthday Wishes (Sku #AICS36) who has this cute fella as one of the images, and made three similar cards:
 The houndstooth print was perfect for paper piecing, so I tried it out for both his top and shorts:
 I popped up a couple of the images & sentiments with pop dots, and left one flat for easier mailing.  I added some blue epoxy bubbles and some zigzag stitching with my sewing machine, and that was it!

 Copics used: E13, E11, E00, E000, R30, W3, W1, W00, B26, B24, B23, B21, Y26, Y21, E50, R22, YG95, YG93, YG91.  Happy stamping!

  6. Wow, you busted out an old paper pad!! I haven't used that one in years but I'm re-inspired now! You know how I love masculine cards so I think these are great! (and yes, I know busted isn't a word but it seemed to fit here! lol!)
