Card Cupids challenged us to use a color scheme of red, white, and blue. This card turned out totally different than what I had envisioned at the beginning. I really wanted something more elegant. But that didn't happen! Instead, she turned out a little more fun and playful.
I used a sketch from Papercraft Star. This is the first time I've worked with a sketch and I found it challenging. I'll have to do this again to become more comfortable with it.
The digital stamp is from Pink Cat Studio. She is colored with Prismacolor pencils.
I took some white tissue paper, scrunched it up, and then spritzed it with my homemade glimmer mist. I then adhered it to blue cardstock and then used a Martha Stewart border punch. I really like how it turned out. I also used it on the pocket.
I didn't think I would ever use those tiny flower dies that came with my cuttlebug but that's exactly what I used to make the flowers for her hat. I seem to be on a feather kick these days; I stuck one in her hat and then used pop dots to adhere the hat.
There's Crystal stickles everywhere, even in her eye shadow!
The tag is embossed with a cuttlebug heart embossing folder and edged with metallic red outline stickers. The fun red fibers are threaded through a heart eyelet.
