h(appy) b(irthday)

Hi everyone!  The My Favorite Things team is back today with samples of our new à la modes set, Big Birthday Wishes.

I’ve paired this fun set with MFT’s new High Rise Alphabet Lowercase, Fishtail Flags STAX and Open Zig Zag Border Die-namics.

My h and b were die-cut from tablet backing then the striped paper. The thicker letters were then layered atop the blue die-cuts to create a shadow.

After coloring the girl’s shirt with Copics, I used a Wine Copic 0.1 Multiliner to add the dots.

On the inside, I used scraps of patterned paper and the negative edge of the Open Zig Zag border beneath the blue patterned strip.  Waste not, want not.  😉
