I hope you all are enjoying your summer! It's Candice back with you today sharing a wonderful hippo birthday card perfect for those summer birthdays!

I used these Reverse Confetti products for my design:

I began with a 6 1/2 x 5 card base.

For the background, I trimmed a piece of Bristol Smooth a little smaller than my card front, inked with salty ocean and tumbled glass, and splattered with white paint and gold shimmer using a damp paintbrush.

While that dried, I inked a couple more pieces of Bristol Smooth, one with worn lipstick, and the other with worn lipstick and spun sugar. I cut the letters with the worn lipstick piece and the ombre one with the 'Happy'.

Next, I stamped the tropical leaves, hibiscus, hippo and accessories, colored them with copic markers, and used the coordinating dies listed above. I arranged them all on the card either with glue or foam tape giving lots of dimensions. I finished with the sentiment on a banner and some clear domes and pink jewels!

I hope you are inspired to mix some of the new release from Reverse Confetti with their adorable older sets!

Thank you for stopping by!

Candice
