Happy Birthday Smart and Beautiful Jessica

I am always looking for great images for birthday cards for the young women at church.  When I saw this image from Lily of the Valley call Jasmine Studying I knew it would be perfect for Jessica.  She is such a smart young lady whose favorite color is red.

I printed the image on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock using a laser jet printer.  It was die cut with an A2 My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle STAX.  The image was colored with Copic Markers E35, E33, E31; YR24, YR21; Y18, Y15, Y13; C7, C5, C3; R89, R37, R17; R39, R29, R24; B26, B24, B23; B99, B97, B95; E51, E50; E35, E53, E50; B000, B0000; E11, C01, E000, R20.  I wanted the desk to look like wood and so darker woodgrain lines were added with E35.

The sentiment is from Penny Black’s Sprinkles and Smiles and was stamped under the desk with Hero Hues India Ink Black.  Darice Sticky Back Foam was cut 1/8″ smaller than the focal image rectangle for added dimension.  A rectangle of red cardstock from my stash was cut 1/8″ larger than the stitched rectangle and the focal image was adhered using a Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.

A top folding A2 cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock and the focal image was adhered to the front with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive and the card was done.
