As promised, I have the second of my three special family cards for you today. This card was made for my 4 year old daughter, who loves everything sparkly and is very attached to her bear, Poppy. This adorable image from All Dressed Up was a perfect fit!
I had a background paper in mind, so steered away from too much pink, opting instead to colour the image with a range of turquoise Pro-Markers. I used the print and cut option on the Silhouette to print the image in this lovely oval frame, then added a little Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to soften the edges. After hunting through my ribbon collection, I came across some leftover 3mm satin ribbon that I used for some wedding invitations last year – it threaded through the frame so easily and, for once, the bow landed well too! I added a little Glossy Accent to the big star sentiment and also to the stars clips in her hair, then a little Stickles magic along the edge of the tutu and on some of the gifts.
The paper is from a First Edition Christmas Joy paper stack – not sure if you can make it out from the photos, but there is a striped snowflake pattern running through it. The snowflake border is from Hobbycraft – I’m not sure what to call it, as it’s not ribbon or paper or card, but is stiff and almost crunchy feeling…if you know what I mean!
I based the layout around Sketch 276 from Sketch Saturday, just flipped it over to suit my card.
Id like to enter this card into the following challenges:
