I decided to make the card for my little cousin, Kate, who is in hospital having her tonsils out & is very angry at the Doctors for what they did to her. All she wanted was her “Mummy” & poor ol’ “Pappy” was so upset that Kate didn’t want anything to do with him!!!! Isn’t that always the way????
I used a lot of pretty colours which I thought a 4 year old would like, including colours that I have not used for so long.
Base Card – Whisper White – 8 1/4″ x 4 1/8″ or 21cm x 10.5cm – Scored in the middled & folded in half
Layer 1 – Pretty in Pink – 5 3/8″ x 3 1/2″ or 13.5cm x 9cm
Layer 2 – Whisper White – 3 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ or 9cm x 4cm
Layer 3 – Bashful Blue – 3 3/8″ x 1 3/8″ or 8.5cm x 3.5cm
Layer 4 – Whisper White – 3 3/4″ x 1 1/2″ or 9.5cm x 4cm
Layer 5 – Certainly Celery – 3 5/8″ x 1 3/8″ or 9cm x 3.5cm
I run Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue & Certainly Celery pieces of Cardstock through the Bigshot using the Embossing Folder – Perfect Polka Dots. Pretty in Pink was adhered to the Base Card – Whisper White, Bashful Blue & Certainly Celery were both adhered to the corresponding pieces of Whisper White & adhered to Pretty in Pink using Multipurpose Glue.
I stamped the image with Staz-On onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock twice, allowed to dry, before colouring using my Stampin’ Up! Markers & Blender Pen. I repeated again for the second image except colouring the skirt only, cut out & put aside.
I punched the image using the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch, adhered to a piece of Melon Mambo Cardstock which had been punched with the 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch & adhered to the Base Card.
I adhered the second skirt to the top of the image with Stampin’ Dimensionals & added little dots to the scallops of the Scallop Punch with my White Gel Pen. Since the photo was taken, I also added Dazzling Diamonds to the top of the sirt with 2-Way Glue Pen. What little girl doesn’t love a bit of glitter? What big girl doesn’t????
