What do you think? Love her as much as I think you do? I stamped her out onto Ultra Smooth Premium White Card stock for Alcohol Markers which is the best paper I have found for my Spectrum Noir markers. Of course I colored her with my Spectrum Noir markers. Then I fussy cut the colored image. Here are the marker colors I used: LG1, LG2, LG3, LG5, FS1, FS2, FS3, FS5, FS8, PP2, PP6, LV1, LV2, LV3.
I thought that she would look cute sitting in the opening on the front of my card so I dug out my die cutting machine and some fun shaped dies. First I grabbed one of my new Darice embossing folders -Flower Frenzy Background. I put some green card stock in the folder and ran it through the machine and embossed the paper. These embossing folders give such a deep, clear embossed image! Love them!
Next I layered the embossed green card stock onto some pink patterned paper. I used a die to cut a shape through both pieces of paper. Then I took the die I used and the next larger size die and cut out the purple "mat" for the opening. I used the larger die to also cut out a coordinating piece of patterned paper for the inside of the card that shows through the hole.
I wanted it to look like she was holding this birthday banner so I stamped out Happy Birthday onto the pink patterned paper and layered it onto the green card stock. Then I trimmed the ends to make it look like a banner. (I showed this technique on a previous post HERE.) I adhered it to the card with double sided adhesive foam squares. The patterned paper I used came with a sticker sheet of flowers. I layered several of them and used some of the same dimensional foam squares to pop up parts of them. I topped them with a button and a couple of gems that I colored with my Spectrum Noir markers for that perfect custom color look. I finished by adding a sentiment from the Flora stamp set to the inside of the card and giving things a little sparkle with Stardust Stickles.
Now remember...keep this between you and me. (lol) Thanks for stopping by and looking today. Until next time...happy scrapping!!!
