Special Delivery Boy Birthday Card

I had so much fun with this card, I just love this adorable little Happy Mail stamp set.
So this card layout again is based on the Tuesday Morning Sketch challenge.
The pattern papers are from some old CTMH scraps.  Plaid piece is cut at 5.5X4.25 for the brown layer I used my largest stitched rectangle die from Simon says stamp bundle of stitched shapes.  I then used a straight stitched scallop edge die to cut it down to the size I needed for sketch, I love how awesome that looks.  The blue diamond pattern paper I used a stitched postage stamp die.  The sentiment stitched flag banner I did the same thing with the straight stitched scallop die to cut it down to the size I wanted, leaving enough room to stamp HB2U in blue ink.  Stamp is from Craftin Desert Divas - Short & Sweet Tags
Ok on to the little adorable mailman/Delivery boy, such a little cutie!  I popped him up on foam tape. I am doing my best to learn to use my Spectrum Noir markers and I am feeling a little more confident each time.  I will do my best to list my marker colors for you.....
Skin tones - FS2, FS3 & FS6  Hair - Canary, Golden Yellow & Sand   Shoes - Sand & RB2  Mail Bag - RB2 & RB3  Pants, Shirt & Hat - TB1, & TB3  Pant Cuffs - TB1, TB3 & TB5   Envelope - IG1 & Blender  Tie & Hat Label - IG1 & IG2

The special delivery envelope and sentiment are from this same Happy Mail stamp set.  I used IG1 and my blender pen to shade these envelopes also.  I cut a shadow layer in black to back the larger center envelope.  The other 4 envelopes with black shadow layers are from Cricut Doodlecharms.  I had my Explore draw the outline of each heart on those 4 envelopes in blue Cricut pen and then I colored the hearts in with TB1
The adorable banner over his head is from a different stamp set - Puppy love birthday.  I again stamped in blue ink.  I used my scanNcut to cut out that banner with an outline.... I love that machine! ❤️  I also inked the edges of each item before adhering down with walnut stain distress ink.
For the inside I used some Kraft card stock cut with my Simon says stamp bundle of stitched shapes using the largest stitched rectangle die for the bottom layer.  Next I took a leftover scrap of blue diamond paper matching the front and used the Simon says stamp bundle of stitched shapes stitched rectangle just to get the top and bottom stitching cut in. The I the took the straight stitched scallop die to trim Down each side.  Then using a brown pattern scrap I used a stitched rectangle die to cut it down to the size to fit this fun Birthday stamp from HOTP called Birthday Greetings.  I stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with fine white embossing powder.  I colored in the cute snail from the Happy mail stamp set.  Markers used on snail - Body ~ Colorista Sand & RB2  Shell Colorista Daffodil, Sand & YG1
