COPIC COLORING VIDEO: Birthday Swissies - C.C. Designs


Hey all!! Happy Friday!! I have a fun birthday card and Copic coloring video for you! I don't know about you but I am in serious need of some birthday cards and we are only a couple months into 2022. I can't even believe my son will be 16 in just a few days! While this card is not for him haha! I did want to use these cute, cute, CUTE Birthday Swissies Clear Stamp Set from C.C. Designs for a fun card. 


I actually used the mirror image/reverse stamping technique for the little Swissie holding the cupcakes. I wanted her body closest to the sentiment and center of the card. It just seemed more balanced to me that way.  You can find my video for the mirror image/reverse stamping technique on YouTube if you have not seen it yet. 


The sweet little Swissie on the other side of the sentiment I left original because she had elements on both sides so it didn't matter really how I stamped her. I actually colored some little flowers on her cake to add a bit of detail and fun to her cake. I was really half tempted to color her little dress like Charlie Brown because of the little chevron and I thought it would be fun and cute. However, I did already have a theme going with the BG family for the card.


I wanted to stack the word Happy and add a cut out birthday to it. But, looking at the sentiments of the stamp set, I thought the large Birthday would be super cute just stamped and fussy cut out. I stacked 6 of the Pool Party cardstock of the Happy and 2 of the Whisper White cardstock. By the time I was done gluing it all together it was so thick but super fun!

After that I will admit I was a little lost as to what I wanted to do. I KNEW I wanted to make a slimline card with this, but I didn't want to take any of the attention away from the girls or the sentiment. That is when I decided to make it a shaker card. I just did a small shaker bit behind using a slimline rectangle cut, but it did the job! 


My son is the one who actually picked out the little shaker bits, along with the background paper. I think he did a perfect job! The last thing he told me I needed to add was dew drops. It was so great making a card with him, as that is not his "thing" anymore.
