I was told they were re-decorating Cohen's room from a "little baby" jungle theme to a "big boy" vintage surfer theme. I decided to make him a surfer birthday card and Name Frame. The image I used is called Surfer Edwin from the Magnolia Stamp Company. I did draw a little smile on my Surfer Edwin because I wasn't sure if the "no-mouth" thing would be weird for those that don't know about Magnolias, haha!
The paper on the card came from the DCWV Tahiti Beach paper pack. I colored his skin and hair with Copics. Then, I paper-pieced his wet suit from some blue paper in the Tahiti paper pack. I colored his surfboard with Martha Stewart Glitter Pens and Office Gel Glitter Pens (from Walmart). I added Close To My Heart Liquid Glass to the wet suit to make it look shiny (kinda hard to see in the picture). I found the sand at Basket Warehouse (an outlet for Hobby Lobby)...a huge jar for only $1.00.
The sentiment was printed from the computer, outlined in Office Gel Glitter Pens, and edges distressed with Tim Holtz distress ink in Vintage Photo. I adhered the sentiment and Edwin to the card with Pop-dots. The picture below shows the card from the side so you can see the dimension. I added pop-dots to the bottom rectangle piece also. The flowers at the top of the card were cut from a sheet of DP in the Tahiti Pack and orange buttons glued to the top. All 3 flowers are on pop-dots too.
I saw the Magnolia Stamp Lovers blog is having a challenge here to use Edwin so I'm entering this in the challenge. The deadline to enter is this Saturday, August 14th....wish me luck!
Have a great week and thanks to all of you who leave me comments! They really lift me up and are very much appreciated! Stay tuned for my next post with the Name Frame using Surfer Edwin.
