happy birthday and many more
My daughter turned five years old last week. When I was deciding what image to use for her birthday card, I came across this Stampavie Birthday Fairy Lee image from Mo Manning and it was perfect!
I paired the image with some patterned papers from My Mind’s Eye’s Just Dreamy 2 line. I stamped my image on copic x-press it cardstock with tuxedo black memento ink. I die cut the image with a petite oval nestability die. Then, I colored it with copic markers. I used these marker colors: W1, W3, E33, E35, E37, BG11, BG13, BG18, Y35, R00, R02, R27, R29, R46, R89, E00, E21, E11, R12, colorless blender. Then, I put my image back in the die and drew around the inside with a black pen.
I stitched my layers together and wrapped some cream crocheted lace and red satin ribbon around them before adhering them to my card base with glue dots. Then, I added a red scalloped oval (die cut with a petite scalloped oval nestability die) to my image and adhered my image and sentiment (from Catslife Press) to my card with foam adhesive. I added some prima roses and some greenery punched with a Martha Stewart branch punch.
I used a Sakura Gelly Roll pen to add a little sparkle to my fairy’s dress and wings and to the stars and sprinkles on the cupcake.
Have a great week!
