I made the card base with an acetate sheet.
For some reason my dad really likes hippos. Personally, I think they are very scary. But as long as Daddy likes them I will make a card for him with hoppos. =P The pair of hoppos represent me and my dad. Hehehe. My dad is super skinny in real life though.
The happy birthday sentiment is actually stamped on the inside of the card. I love how acetate allows you to do that. I used a light blue coloured card stock for the inside of the card so that it looks like the sky when the card is closed.
This is a close up to show the details. The water and grass is actually placed behind the acetate and the hippos are on top. It's difficult to see in this picture. I used a stylus to crease wavy lines in the paper before inking (or buffing) it with Distress Inks in Broken China and Tumbled Glass.
