Today's card is a belated birthday card. Somehow I missed a friends birthday from way back in FEBRUARY!!! I hate that! Anyway, I decided to go with a "fashion" theme for this "unfashionably late" card. Here's what I did:
- The background paper is a pretty pink/grey/black glitter paper from DCWV. I cut it just smaller than the card front so I'd have a white "mat" around it. It looks scalloped, but that is only because I used some scalloped Thin Line Dazzles around the edge (HOTP).
- The focal piece is a white rectangular piece of card stock, on which I stamped one of the prima dolls. I stamped the skirt on a pretty printed vellum piece (HOTP), heat embossed it with fine black powder, and fussy cut around it. I colored the doll's flesh and hair with chalk. The shoes were colored with Smooch ink. The bodice was colored with pink Stickles. I ran the Stickles a little below the waist, and along the lace of the skirt, so it serves as glue to hold the vellum piece in place.
- I used more Dazzles to frame the focal. The Happy Birthday words were silver Dazzles that I colored with a black sharpie. I hand-wrote the rest of the sentiment.
For the inside of the card, I stamped some green "grass" using a stamp from the HOTP Four Seasons stamps set, after stamping the girl & her dog (HOTP Jainie's Girls). I colored the girl & dog with chalks & Smooch inks, and added the hand-written sentiment:
