Happy Weekend everyone! I’m hopping in today to share an extra special card for an extra special someone!
My daughter has a dance team competition today so I made her a special card. They do fun gift deliveries to the kids in their rooms while they are waiting to perform and I try to make a special card each time to tie to a balloon.
To make my card, I started by die cutting the stitched rectangle from Trinity Stamps Slimline Series: Frame and Fold dies. Then I stamped the Awesome Human stamp on it and colored it with copic markers. I chose a coordinating color of cardstock and die cut the card from the same Slimline Series: Frame and Fold dies. I love how many different things you can do with this die set. It’s got amazing potential!
The stamped panel is adhered to fun foam and then adhered to the card for a bit of dimension and interest on a simple card design.
Then, I decided to add a little something fun to the inside of my card too! I grabbed my hello senti-mini stamps and dies and started deciding how I wanted it to look. In the end I chose teal and white cardstock to make the hello from and stamped sunshine below it. This wasn’t quite enough so after digging through my stash I thought it would be so fun to have the cute frog from Puddle Jumpers hopping off the word hello.
This made me giggle for 2 reasons…it’s Leap Day after all! And because my daughter is always bouncing around and loves all things critter just like her mama. 😉
For finishing touches on the front I did a combo of all the things! I started with Wink of Stella glitter brush pen on the word YOU, then moved to yellow Stickles on all the stars. Next I added white gel pen to the banner and then finished it off with glossy accents on HUMAN.
Super fun card and I’m really excited to give it to her! This is the second of four competitions they have this season and my ideas are already turning for what to make next time!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Enjoy your weekend and have a fabulous day!
