S ponging the background really pops those meerkats with the Gang's All Meer.
Bermuda Bay 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at half
Sahara Sand 5 1/4 x 4
Whisper White 5 x 3 3/4 and 1/2 x 3
and 5 x 4 for the inside.
Stamp the meerkats and a cacti on a piece of Whisper White in Memento Ink. Color with the Stampin' Blends. Cut out with the paper snips.
Sponge the Whisper White background.
For the bottom, start with the Sahara Sand and go upwards. Use the Crumb Cake towards the bottom.
For the sky, start with Balmy Blue and then blend in the Bermuda Bay towards the top.
Wrap the Bermuda Bay Baker's Twine around the sponged paper and tie in a bow. Adhere this to the Sahara Sand and then onto the card base.
Adhere the strip of Birthday Bonanza to the card front above the bow.
On the small strip of Whisper White, carefully stamp just the Happy Birthday in Bermuda Bay. Trim down to size and adhere with mini dimensionals.
Place three tiny drops of Multipurpose Liquid Glue, one by the Birthday and two on the ground. Use the Take Your Pick tool and place sequins on the dots.
On the inside piece of Whisper White, stamp the underground meerkat. Color with the Stampin' Blends. Add a party hat in Bermuda Bay. Sponge some ground around the bottom.
