* Easel-y semi sweet! *

Written on Thursday, June 4th, 2015

   Today’s card is a birthday card that I made with a little friend of mine in mind. Her birthday isn’t until January though. It all started with the stamp from Tiddly Inks, and then I saw that purple paper.

This little girl is called “semi Sweet” by Tiddly Inks. I just LOVE her! I figure it would be perfect for a little girl who is trying to figure out who she is.

   I used the print and cut feature on my silhouette to leave a small white border around her. How did I ever craft without that thing? The papers are from 3 different Doodlebug Halloween 6×6 paper pads. Each piece was matted with a 1/16″ border so it was easier on the eye to transition from one pattern to another.

I just love how this came out!

   For coloring the girl, I tried some new styles of coloring. I wanted the cupcake frosting to look shiny and I feel like it does.

   For the “inside”, I needed something to make the card an easel card. Christy always adds extras into her digital stamp sets. So, I printed, cut, and colored one of the extra skulls. I added this with a double layer of glue dots so it would actually catch and hold the front of the card. For the sentiments, I wanted something that I’d say to a preteen girl, so I used this stamp I got from an online craft sale on Facebook. I believe it is by Unity Stamps. The next sentiment is from WPlus9. Can’t have a birthday card without it saying “Happy Birthday” somewhere. I embossed these using white embossing powder for that contrast against the black.

   That’s it for my card today. I really do love how it came out. It is going to need a custom envelope though. It’s 3.5″x6″. Hope you like it! I’d like to enter it into the Tiddly InksTake it Easel-y” challenge. Thanks, guys!
