Happy Zombie Birthday card

Happy Tuesday!  Happy birthday to my friend Carol!

Well, many of you are thinking I probably lost my marbles: a "Happy Zombie Birthday" card?  For those of you that do know me, you all know that I lost my marbles a long time ago.  :)

The card theme was actually a request from Carol's husband.  He told me he wanted something different and fun.  After a discussion, the zombie theme was approved.  It definitely is different but I honestly think the stamp is cute and the colors chosen emphasize the funny nature of the card.  The zombie stamp set will be creeping in (no pun intended) on future birthday cards.  This stamp set will be perfect for fans of the series the Walking Dead.

A few details about the card that I enjoyed doing: the blood splatter on the background and the dripping gift (both techniques compliments of crafter extraordinaire, Deja) and the tattered washi tape banner.  I had good time doing the splatter.  I felt kinda like Dexter when he practices the splatters in the lab.  (Hmm...I think I have been watching too much TV lately...two TV references in one blog.)

Materials used:

  • Art Gone Wild zombie stamp sets Zombie Birthday and sentiments
  • Distress inks Barn Door, Black Soot, Tea Dye
  • Copic markers
  • Distress stickles, Barn Door
  • Spellbinders Deckled Rectangles

Thanks for stopping by!
