Let's Taco 'bout Your Birthday

Here's my card for the current Lawn Fawnatics masculine themed card challenge.  I used a trio of Lawn Fawn's stamp sets for this fun birthday card.

Let's Taco 'bout Your Birthday card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn
My focal image is a cluster of images from the Year Nine, Let's Toast, and So Smooth stamp sets.  I colored the images with Copic markers, then cut out the images with the matching dies or with my Scan 'n Cut machine.  For the background, I used a mix of distress inks and distress oxides to create a gradient of colors from coral red to orange to yellow.  The images were arranged on the inked panel using foam tape for dimension. I stamped the birthday sentiment from the Year Nine set on strips of narrow red cardstock and adhered them at the top of the panel.  After accenting the cluster of images wtih a trio of matte enamel dots, I adhered the finished panel to an orange card base.

Materials Used:
Year Nine, Let's Toast, and So Smooth stamp sets, Let's Toast and So Smooth dies (Lawn Fawn); Memento Tuxedo Black ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); markers (Copic); Abandoned Coral distress oxide, Mustard Seed and Dried Marigold distress inks (Ranger); Orange Zest cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Red Punch cardstock (Recollections); red matte enamel dots (Eyelet Outlet); foam tape
