Happy Birthday, Grandma!

Hi All!
   Thanks for stopping in!  Today, I have a birthday card project to share with you.  As you can see from the images below, it was created for my Grandma.  She will be celebrating her birthday on Wednesday - the same day as Ground Hog's Day(I did a spring time feel for this one in hopes of winter being soon behind us-Regardless of this approaching winter storm!! LoL).  Anywho, I think it turned out pretty cute, as my idea was to have the little person holding a somewhat larger-than-life cake as a present to hopefully brighten her day when she opens it.  One of my favorite parts of this card is, when you look at it straight on, you can see the eyes peering through behind the candles.  Stay tuned after the pictures for info on how I made it.


















How it was made:


Background:
Blue cardstock
Grass & bushes cut from Everyday Paper Dolls
I used pop-dots on the grass layer to give it some depth


Person:
Cut at 4.5" from Everyday Paper Dolls
I used corresponding cricut markers to add to bring out some detail
I used a thin black Sharpie marker for the nose, mouth and eyebrows(So wanting Peachy Keen Stamps!)
On the blue jeans, I used my glittery chalks to give depth & highlights, as well as used a gel pen at the ankles


Cake:
Cut at 2.5" from Stretch Your Imagination
I used corresponding cricut markers on the layers
I used pop-dots on some of the cake layers for depth, and for the flames on the candles
I also put some glitter glue on the candle flames to make them stand out even more
Cut "Grandma" from Jubilee at 1"


Inside:
"Happy Birthday" stamped sentiment white ink on black paper, cut out and then pop-dots for a bit of depth
