I love making birthday cards for the young women at church. It is fun to find an image that looks similar to what they look like and color matching hair and skin tones and the clothes in their favorite colors. I really like the navy and coral combination that Hailey likes.
I stamped the image from La-La Land Crafts Love You Molli onto Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, which is Copic friendly and colored the image with the markers listed below.
Once I was done coloring, I then scanned and imported it into the Silhouette Cameo to cut around the image. Almost as good as a matching die, just takes a little more time, but faster than fussy cutting.
I cut a rectangle from the same white cardstock using a My Favorite Things Wonky Rectangle and then ran it through the Big Shot with the Cuttlebug Cross My Heart Embossing Folder and adhered the focal image using 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape.
An A2 top folding cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock. To make the focal image pop on the white cardbase, I used Gina K. Designs In the Navy 120# cardstock, which was cut 1/8″ larger than the embossed rectangle and adhered using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.
The sentiment is from the Simon Says Stamp Brush Stroke Message set and was stamped on Vellum with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder then wrapped around the focal image panel and adhered to the back with Scotch Tape. Darice Sticky Back Foam was added to the back of the panel and then adhered to the cardbase with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.
