Soooo, tonight I would like to share a card I made as an order from my friend, Liz. My brief was 5 year old girl, very pink, and I think I have succeeded in fulfilling that brief:
I decided to make an easel card, as these are always popular with kids.
I used a pink blank and covered the outer and inner with my new digi papers from Nit Wits - their Naughty or Nice Christmas collection. I love the vintage feel to these papers.
I love the little details on the inner paper, such as the Christmas tree in the bottom right-hand corner.
Before attaching the papers I inked the edges with brushed corduroy distress ink using my ink duster brushes. I also used the ink dusters and brushed corduroy to ink the edges of the petals of the pink poinsettias, which I die-cut and embossed using some marianne creatables dies, and finished with a pink or purple gem as the middle.
I used the ink dusters with victorian velvet to ink the edge of the image, which is an LOTV mini masterpiece from last Christmas, and is the girliest one I could find. I also inked the tags, which I stamped using black versamark ink and the LOTV Christmas tags sentiment stamps. I love this set, as even if there is no room for a 'proper' sentiment, I can always find room for a little tag or two.
I also added some glitter to the stars on the image and the crown, together with adding liquid pearls to the falling snow.
To put the card together, I attached the image to some craft gauze and attached this to the card, tucking a die-cut pink glitter flourish behind.
I made a little bow out of lilac ribbon, to match the image, and tucked two tags behind, one of which I had added peel-off to, which I had coloured pink, saying 'niece'.
I also attached the smaller poinsettia to the font front of the card.
Before attaching the paper to the inner of the card, I had wrapped some pink ribbon around it and attached a button brad. Again, I attached a tag and the larger poinsettia.
To finish, I spelled out the recipient's name in gold glitter peel-off letters.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
