Happy Birthday to a Book Lover

Morning all.
Over at Cardz4Guyz we have a brand new challenge for you, celebrating -


We in the UK had this a while ago but the rest of the world appear to celebrate it tomorrow!
Anyway whatever the day we should all celebrate books and reading so here is my card for your inspiration.

This little chap was printed out then the frame was cut around him using a rectangle die, his feet remain on the outside of the frame. I coloured him using Copics and finished cutting him out. 
The background was stamped with a Happy Birthday background stamp from Hero Arts, I think, the stamp is very old and the packet long since disappeared. Because the background panel suggests birthday I didn't feel the need to add another birthday sentiment.
For more book themed inspiration check out the rest of the DT here.

Use die cuts

As You Like It Challenge
Fave colouring medium
It has to be Copics, just love the control you get with them and they blend fabulously and the colours are so clean looking. I just get lost in the process and time just slips by!


  1. He's so cute Julie. I love the clean and simple look to your card. Love Dawn x

  2. This is a fantastic design Julie, love that fella (perfectly coloured) with his pile of books. Guess What? The rain is back, just when we made the decision to allow the horses 24 hour turnout. Never mind!! xx

  3. What an adorable guy with that big stack of books! Love the background. Great design Jules! xx

  4. Sorry this is late, Julie. I love the total design of your card. Your use of partial die cutting is so well done. Thanks for joining us at Simply Create Too Challenge. Cheers, Janelle (DT) :)
