I am using the cute little Tucan from the Bonanza Buddies Bundle today. This bundle is found in the Birthday Bonanza Suite in the January-June Mini Catalog. Let’s look at
Mango Melody – 7-1/4″ x 5 1/2″, scored and folded at 3″
Whisper White – 2-3/4″ x 5-1/4″ (inside)
Smoky Slate – 2-1/2″ x 4″
Ice Cream Cone DSP – 2-3/4″ x 5-1/4″
Animal/Present DSP – 1″ x 5-1/4″
This was such a FUN card to make! I used the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper (DSP) to decorate the majority of the card. Stamping was limited to the tag that was die-cut with the Bonanza Dies and the sentiment from the Bonanza Buddies stamp set. After die-cutting the tag, I stamped the sentiment, then the balloon strings and finally the Tucan, all using Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I stamped in this order to make it easier to line-up the bird’s beak with the balloon strings. I punched-out the three “balloons” with the 1/2″ circle punch then used mini dimensionals to attach them to the tag. After adding a small length of black twine, (from the Country Club Twine Combo Pack), I attached the tag to the card front with dimensionals.
You can scarcely see the inside sentiment but it reads, “I’m glad it’s your birthday so I can tell you how wonderful you are!”
Although I usually add finishing touches, the bit of twine was added to the tag before attaching it to the card front. I thought you might like to see a close up of the Tucan and the only coloring I did on him. I used the Dark Daffodil Delight, Dark Bermuda Bay and, the Dark Calypso Coral Blends to color his beak.
Have fun creating a Tucan birthday card to give to that little someone special!
