Birthday Dragon Card

Hello everyone!! :o)

Today I want to share with you this Birthday Dragon Card.

I made this card for my niece Nika who's 4th birthday is today. Happy Birthday Nika!!! 

How I made the card...

I used stamps from My Favorite Things 'BB Magical Dragons' stamp set.

I stamped an adorable small dragon on a watercolor paper and colored her in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut the dragon, leaving a thin white border around her. (This dragon is female. :o) )

For a background I used Uniko 'Block Party Birthday' stamp. I inked the stamp with VersaMark Watermark Ink and pressed the stamp on a white cardstock paper panel. Watermark look: LOVE it! :o)

With all parts ready, I assembled the card. I glued the panel on a foam sheet square and glued it on a white top folded card base. I glued another white cardstock paper panel inside the card to make the card sturdier.

Then I glued some foam behind the dragon and placed her on the card. As a finishing touch, I embellished the card with enamel sticker stars. :o)

Card dimensions: 89 mm x 121 mm (3 1/2" x 4 3/4")
