C.C. Designs Swiss Pixie Sunflower Lula Birthday Card

For young girls I think little people stamps make cute birthday cards.  I created birthday cards for the young women in our church who range in age from 12-18.  It was time to create some cards to have on hand for upcoming birthday. One of the girls favorite colors were orange and black. The image from C. C. Designs Swiss Pixie Sunflower Lula was great for creating a card with that color scheme.

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, since I would be doing Copic Coloring, on Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock and ran it through my Silhouette Cameo with the PIXScan Mat to cut an outline around the image.  The Copic Markers used were: YR09, YR07, YR04; YR12, YR14, YR15; W7, W8, W9; YR09, Y19; W9, E49, E59; E49, E47, E55; E00, E00, E01.

In keeping with the color scheme I die cut a rectangle from Gina K. Designs 120# Black Cardstock with Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Frames.  I found some orange paper in my stash of cardstock that had faint yellow sunflowers and cut it to be just 1/8″ smaller than the die cut rectangle and adhered them together using the Scotch ATG Gun.  I pulled some black and white gingham ribbon from my stash and wrapped it around the background retangle, tying the bow on the left and placing it in the bottom third of the card.  Then the panel was adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Tombo Mono Multi Glue, which gives you a few moment to move things around and center it perfectly on the cardbase.

I wanted the focal image to pop from the page so I die cut My Favorite Things Vertical Greetings Die from 80# White Cardstock and adhered it to the cardbase with 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape.  The focal image was then centered on the vertical greeting die cut and adhered with some more foam tape.

The sentiment is from is from Whimsy Stamps Party Mini Letter Seals.  It was stamped on 80# white cardstock and then run through the Big Shot with a Spellbinders circle die.  Foam tape was added to the back of the sentiment and it was tucked under the ribbon bow.  A little Ranger Multi Matte Medium was used to ensure it remained in place.

The final embellishment was to scatter some Doodlebug Beetle Black, Pretty Pink Posh Charcoal, Doodlebug Tangerine, Pretty Pink Posh Tangerine Sequins and the card was done.
