Happy Birthday KaraLee

KaraLee is a delightful young woman at church who recently turned 16, which is such an exciting age.  Her favorite color is turquoise.  She has beautiful long, blond hair and big blue eyes.  I used the Make It Crafty Jacinta Sitting and Thinking Digi Stamp for her birthday card this year.

I printed the image with my laser jet printer onto Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock.  This allows for coloring with Copic Markers without the lines bleeding.  Markers used were: BG18, BG16, BG13, BG11; G24, G94; E35, E53, E50; E11, E01, E000, R20, R21; C0, C1, C2, C4, C6; B12, B000.

Once the coloring was complete I used the PIXScan Mat to cut around the image with the Silhouette Cameo.  I traced around the cutout image on some Darice Sticky Foam, cut it with scissors and adhered it to the back of the focal image.  A rectangle of the same white cardstock was die cut using a Gina Marie Designs Scalloped Rectangle Die.  The focal image was then adhered to the front using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

A rectangle of green patterned paper was die cut using an A2 My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle Die and the Scalloped Rectangle was adhered to the center using Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.

The sentiment is from Gina K. Designs Birthday Greetings and was stamped on a strip of vellum with Distress Oxide Peacock Feathers Ink and then heat embossed with Hero Arts Ultra Fine Clear Embossing Powder.  The vellum sentiment was then wrapped around the green rectangle and adhered to the back with plain old scotch tape.

A top folding A2 cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock and the focal image panel was adhered to the front with the same dotliner adhesive and the card was done.
