I created this card as a submission for the Norwegian magazine Ett Trykk. I used one of the images from the June Stamp Kit- Fun in the Sun. I stamped her twice in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, once on Neenah Solar White cardstock, once on Whiff of Joy Patterned Paper Fruehlingserwachen.

The dress of the image on the patterned paper was colored with Copic Markers (BG72, BG75 and BG78), cut out and paper pieced to the main image, which was colored with Copic Markers (Skin: E000, E01, E02, Hair: E97, E99, E19, Shirt: YG01, YG03, YR15, YR14, E99, Shoes: YG01, YG03, Book: E41, E42, E43). The main image was cut out as well.

A piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock turned into a frame by cutting and embossing it with Classic Circle and Lacey Circle Nestabilities dies. Another piece of the Paper Fruehlingserwachen was adhered behind it. The image was adhered to the frame with dimensionals.

The edges of a  1 3/4″ x 4″ strip of Fruehlingserwachen paper were slightly sanded and adhered to a 4″ square of the same paper pack. White Melissa Frances Lace was adhered underneath the strip before the layers were stitched to a 4 3/16″ square of Whisper White cardstock.  Next everything was adhered to a 4 1/2″ square of textured Kraft cardstock.

I dyed some off-white seam binding with Frayed Burlap Distress Re-inker and water and tied it into a bow with the Bow Easy.  The sentiment is from the same stamp kit and was stamped on a tag that had been cut with a retired Spellbinders die. The tag was airbrushed with Copic Marker E42. A jump ring was added to the top of the tag and it was tied to the bow with embroidery floss and a My Mind’s Eye button. Three Silver Kaisercraft Rhinestones were adhered above the tag and a Recollections Rhinestone swirl was adhered to the upper right hand side.

The card front was adhered to an Easel card base, a 4 1/2″ x 9″ piece of textured Kraft cardstock, scored at 2 1/4″ and 4 1/2″.  For the inside of the card the edges of a 1 3/4″ x 4″ piece of patterned paper were sanded, then adhered to a 4 1/4″ piece of White cardstock. More of the white lace was adhered on top of the paper strip and the edges were stitched. Three buttons were stitched to the lower right hand side of the layer before it was adhered to the card base.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
