It's my older brother's birthday today! Happy Birthday, Ge! He doesn't enjoy celebrating his birthday as much as I do, but then again, I love celebrating ALL birthdays! I made this card featuring the two of us on a rooftop with a pig balloon. He was born in the year of the Pig. When I was a kid, I wanted to adventure onto the top of our roof... and become the ultimate Fiddler on the Roof. My brother helped me achieve that goal. He figured out a way to climb out the bathroom window. We had two levels of roofs... a shorter one and a taller one. I asked him to give me a boost to the top roof... but I don't think it was very successful because I was laughing the whole time. We ended up staying out there for 5-10 minutes and came back in. So sneaky!
I didn't have a rooftop stamp or die cut that was wide enough for a card, so I decided to use a scallop border die from The Stamps of Life to make my own roof. I paired this with the Carried Away and Lunar Animals stamps from Mama Elephant. Here's the card:
- Mama Elephant: Lunar Animals
- Mama Elephant: Carried Away
- Mama Elephant: Sew Fancy
- The Stamps of Life: Candles4Birthday Stamps
- The Stamps of Life: Scallop Border Dies
- Copic Markers
- Distress Ink:
- Weathered Wood
- Hickory Smoke
- Tumbled Glass
- Foam Adhesive
- Wink of Stella Brush Pen
- Tombow Mono Adhesive Tape Runner
