This card was super simple.
First of all I stamped my happy monster and then coloured him with Copic Markers. I tried water colouring but I couldn't get the depth of colour I was after. I then fussy cut my monster, which really wasn't as hard as I thought it would be.
I cut out his tummy with a small circle framelit and covered it with acetate using the fine tip glue pen.
I used a small amount of foam tape around the circle on the back of the acetate.
I then cut a circle the next size up using Daffodil Delight cardstock.
I placed my monster face down with the foam tape on top and then put in my small sequins and beads. I then placed the slightly larger circle over the top to seal it.
I stamped my greeting, from the stamp set Big on Birthdays from the Occasions catalogue. It is bold and beautiful. I used Archival Black and then instantly heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. It is amazing that we are able to emboss with all the Classic Stamp Pads - it makes them so versatile and great value for money - think of the opportunities of embossing with all those fantastic colours!!!
I used dimensionals to adhere my monster to the Daffodil Delight cardstock and voila it was finished. I did stamp a nice big greeting on the inside and also heat embossed that too!
