Dim Sum Birthday Card

This card is for a no-frills kinda gal so I kept it simple.  My new Mama Elephant dim sum stamp set was a perfect fit.  I started by texturizing the light blue green background with a Sizzix embossing folder.  I think the woven texture looks a bit Asian and reminds me of the woven tops of dim sum steamers. Because the cute dim sum characters were left white, there was very little coloring to do. However, I did have to do a lot of fussy cutting as I don't have the matching die set.
I decided to decorate the inside of the card too.  After a bit of searching, I found my old Lawn Fawn stamp set with the fortune cookie stamp, fortune strip, and chopsticks.
Because I had extra stamped and colored food characters, I decided to make a mini calendar.  (It saves time to stamp and color extra pieces for a later project.  I store them in the stamp package.)  I circled the birthday girl's birthdate.  Yay! I used up another calendar, only a few more to go. *wink*wink*  Hope this post gives you some inspiration for a quick local style card.  See you again....soon!
