A beautiful little girl we know turns 4 next week and this is the card I’ve made for her. I hope she likes it!
I’ve used the emboss resist technique for the butterflies from Priceless. If you are on my monthly newsletter list then you will receive a tutorial on how to do emboss resist. One of the many advantages of joining my monthly newsletter!
The close-ups below will do the card greater justice …
I’ve used the colours Almost Amethyst, Lovely Lilac, Tempting Turquoise and Basic Black. I love the textured card stock – it looks great! I used Best Friends numbers for the number 4 and then my Lovely Lilac marker pen to write the “th”.
I also love the Stampin’ Up! Rhinestone brads … these look amazing!
And I tried a new way to use my marker pens! I used my Tempting Turquoise marker pen to colour the edge of my grosgrain ribbon. What do you think? Yet another great use for Stampin’ Up! marker pens!
I’m very slack … I have been meaning to make this card for a while. It is for a lovely friend who has had an operation recently. Except she’ll be well on the mend by the time she receives the card!
Anyway, a long while ago during a training session I had the chance to use someone else’s Paisley background stamp. Finally, I decided to use it! The rest of the card just grew from the old olive Paisley stamp on Whisper White card stock and the need for a Get Well card. Of course, Fun & Fast Notes provided me with all I needed then. I had fun with my new aqua painter, water colour paper and, naturally, I couldn’t help but use my crop-a-dile!
I really like Old Olive and Regal Rose together … and the ribbons are just fabulous in the new catalogue! Enjoy your day and thanks for looking!
