Ist Birthday Card

Well I had all my housework done at the beginning of the week and so I got some time to craft.

My friend's granddaughter is 1 today and she asked if I could make her a card so I set to and came up with this little one.

The card is 6x6 tent fold in 300gsm cream card.
The back ground paper is doublesided, so I covered the right side with the dot design and the slim left side in the square design. I ran both through an embossing folder first with a daisy design and then inked over using Antique Linen.
I used a MS boarder punch on some MME paper and added some pink ric rac ribbon. I used a SB die to cut the central design out of the same MME paper and inked that too. I made a faux mat for it.
 I inked up using pink in to brown on my Verve "twinkle twinkle" stamp and embossed in clear powder. Again I used a SB die to cut it out and then made a mat using Story Book cartridge. I used Don Juan to cut the hearts, a stamp was used to make 3 flowers of one I trimmed it back to layer on top of the other and added some glitter. I added a little peeloff teddy and a button and a brad.
The sentiment I printed out on my pc and then cut out using a SB die.
I think this card hit the spot as when I handed it over to my friend she cried.
Thanks for looking in today and I hope you come back soon.
