First Birthday Card, Dressed Up Style
Here is a card that I made over the week-end for my daughter to give to her friend. Her friend's daughter is turning one in June. I asked her what the invitations looked like and she text me a picture of this adorable little girl in a purple t-shirt and a pink tutu! I knew immediately what kind of card I wanted to make for her! I've seen similar cards like this on Pinterest. I didn't have any pink tulle, so I used the 5/8" Flower Trim that is in the Spring Catalog, 2013. If you that trim, you'd better get it because it will not be in the new Catalog in June! I took a Pink Pirouette marker to color the trim with and attached it to the dress part with Red Tape. I used a scrap of 1/8" Taffeta ribbon for the belt and a rhinestone for some bling! Now on the invitation, the number one was in pink glitter, so I used my Oval Framelits and used some glimmer paper for behind the dress. I used Very Vanilla and Wisteria Wonder card stock too. Oh I also used Red tape to adhere the dress form to the glimmer paper and behind that used some dimensionals for some depth.
Well, I'm doing this post on Sunday night, between storms, so I need to sign off for now, have a great day! Mary
