This little digi is not free, but I like her anyway. She is from the Saturated Canary. I am loving the ditial stamps!
Why am I making so many birthday cards? you may ask. We are having a monthly birthday party for all of the girls at work, and then as close to their birthday, I am giving them each a unique card in their color(s) of choice.
As my friend's birthday is on the 13th of Feb, so I ended up using this little girl with hearts and colored her with copics. The colors are askew here, I see. I can tell as the boots look red, but are really a rusty-brown. I added glossy accents to all of the hearts. I cut out the frames from Elegant Edges on my Expression and then ran the outer part through my Big Shot with a CuttleBug folder. The texture really changed the look of the whole thing! The red portion is SU! card stock and the inner portion with the flowers is a Glitz paper. I went digging in my goodies and found those red skittles? I added some gold cord around the frame where the two pieces meet. That was the hardest part of the whole card! I then added some flowers as it felt a little naked.
I used rub-ons for the Happy Birthday (now only about 2 million rub-ons to go! lol!) and then cut out two layers with SU! punches. The background paper is "funkadelic" and I wish I knew who's it was. I liked it so much I picked up two pieces of it one at two different times from my stash to use while making this card! lol! I used a white marker on the brown for stitching and brown dots on the kraft card stock.
The inside has been cone as well. I am happy with the overall look of this card!
If you stop by and have a challenge blog or know of a fun one, please let me know. I find it a wonderful opportunity to force myself to keep going! The challenges are a lot of fun and I'd love to come play along with you!
