Soooo, this is card I made some time ago and just haven't got round to blogging about (I'm slowly catching up!).
This was an order from a friend for his goddaughter, Abigail. All I knew was that she had blonde hair, but I think I can always rely on my trusty LOTV art pads to provide an image that everyone will love.
I decided not to cut down the image panel, as to no do so meant that I could add Abigail's name to the image, as well as stamp 'goddaughter'. Not cutting down the image meant that I needed to use a large 8x8 card, but I don't mind that. I like using them for special cards - you can get some much detail and embellishments on the,. I also added some stickles glitter to the fairy's wings and skirt, although it doesn't seem to show up too well in these photos.
I used pink sparkly letters for the name and age, and as I had used so much pink, I realised that pink would be needed in the backing paper, bit also with a contrast colour to distract from the pink. Step up, LOTV perfect pair. I just knew that this patchwork paper would be perfect. I took the rest of my embellishment colours from this.
I used some bright green ribbon and topped this with some pink spotty ribbon and wrapped this around the paper. I the added a bow made from the left over pink spotty ribbon. I added pink or green gems where I could and to finish I stuck a happy birthday sentiment to some pink card and added this to the card.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
