Have a Slothsome Birthday Card

My oldest son will be turning 26 next week, so I created a fun sloth-themed card for him using a stamp set by Art Impressions. I used an old Spellbinders die set to create the shaped card and the tree the sloth is hanging from. I colored the tree leaves and the stamped sloth with Ohuhu Honolulu alcohol markers and adhered him to the tree. I used a cloud stencil by Trinity Stamps and 2 colors of blue ink to create the background. 

For the inside of the card, I used 2 sentiments from the AI sloth set and die cut them with light blue die cut mats behind them. I think my son will get a chuckle out of the “I love you slow much” sentiment! I think that’s my favorite sentiment in the set!😂

Challenges I’m entering: Thing 1: Kraft card base Thing 3: sloth Thing 2: entered Crafters Cafe Challenge (2/4; ends May 29) ATG (3/5 for the week; 5/10 for the challenge; ends May 24)
