A Little Birthday Wish for Lizzie

This card was made for a wonderful young woman in my church named Lizzie whose favorite color is blue.  When I’m making cards for the young women in the ward I try and find a stamp that looks a little similar to them in length of hair.  This stamp is a digital image from Paper Nest Dolls called Cupcake.

I printed the image onto Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with my Brother Laser Printer, which allows you to color the image without the lines bleeding. Colors used: B97, B95, B93, B91; BG49, BG45; R46, R43; E55, E57, E31; E11, E02, D01, E00, E000; C6, C4, C2; Y26, Y23. Once the coloring was complete I die cut around the image with the PIXScan Mat and the Silhouette Cameo. I placed the image on some Darice Sticky Back Foam, traced around it with a pencil, fussy cut the foam with scissors, the added it to the back of the image.

Since Lizzie’s favorite color is blue I found some blue patterned paper that matched the colors in the image and die cut it with an A2 My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle. I decided I wanted to have a raised frame around the image and so I placed a Gina Marie Designs In & Out Stud Dot Rectangle in the center of the paper and cut it using the Big Shot. 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was cut to add to the back of the frame.

The image and frame were placed on a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock to determine where to stamp the sentiment. The sentiment is from the My Favorite Things Birthday Greetings stamp set and was stamped using Distress Oxide Faded Jeans. The backing was removed from the foam tape and the frame was added to the font of the of the card. The image was then adhered using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive and the card was done.
