Takeo Happy Birthday

A Boy card? ...............well, it just happen to be a Boy card because the card template is from the Silhouette on line store......yup, a card template with balloons already built in!  Now how perfect is that to go with the Sister Stamps Release #8 Takeo stamp with balloons. It is so EASY to just cut this card.  I did change the font and added a contrast background. And, why not also add some micro glitter to the inside frame...............some sparkly is OK for a boy card. The paper is from K & Company Birthday Scrap Kit.: perfect for that festive feel. The Brown card stock base is textured from Bazzil. Neenah white paper is used for the card front - you'll see why further below............yup, it's because the contrast color balloons and frame were using Copics to give then matching color to Takeo. Even the "happy birthday" letters are using a Copic pen which matches Takeo's clothing. 
A closer look at the inside frame with micro fine glitter. I just used a glue stick and applied the micro glitter - it seems to work fine and hasn't fallen off. Original font didn't work for me so I changed it but forgot to make note of the font style......ooops.  A contrast shadow made using the Silhouette was easily made. A Quickie glue pen is used to adhered those really fine letters. No problem to pop up the message with foam tape on top of the micro fine glitter
And here are those balloons that look like the ones Takeo is carrying.
Details of Takeo:
Card inside: message is stamped using SU "Best Yet" and SU Chocolate Chip ink
This Silhouette cut file was done completely using Neenah White card stock. Coloring is done BEFORE removing the card stock off the mat. That's how I got the balloons and the frame to match the colors used for Takeo. The balloon strings were left white color.  I just wanted to utilize the colors and dreaded the thought to have to scour through piles of paper to see what would co-ordinate.
Copic color details:
Takeo hair: W8, W5, W4, W6
Takeo Clothes: Y17, E27, E31, E55 (letters happy birthday)
Takeo Face: R20 E21
Bamboo: E71, E55
Frame, Message mat: Y38
Balloons: Y17, R35, B24 +a white gel pen on the side of the balloon
I hope you enjoyed this card, it worked out fine................have a crafty day!!!
