I created this card about a year ago for a submission. I am kind of glad that it didn’t get picked so I have something to share with you today. Sorry I have been so quiet lately. With the long labor day weekend followed by another bout of migraines (we had a rain front moving through), I didn’t get much stamping done lately!

For this card I printed out Tiddly Inks Toasting Properly on Neenah Classic White cardstock. The image was cut and embossed with a Grand Rectangle die and colored with  Copic Markers (Skin: E000, E00, E01, E11, BV00   Hair: Y26, E35, E37, E47   Dress: V04, V05, V06, V17, V09   Crown: Y13, Y15, Y17, W3   Bottle: YR21, YR23, YR23, W3, YG01, YG03, W3    Ground: W3, W5, W7, W10    Background: BV0000, BV000, BV00, BV01    Background spots: BV000, BV00, BV01, YR21, YG03)  . The image was adhered to a piece of black cardstock, cut and embossed with a Grand Scallop Rectangle Nestabilities die and the edges were paper pierced. Some dots were added with Stardust Stickles around the girl to make the background sparkle.

A 3″ x 4 1/2″ piece of Phantom Pink Paislee patterned paper was adhered to a 4 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ piece of the same paper pack. The bottom corners were rounded and a border was stitched around the edge. White organdy Ribbon was colored with Copic Marker V06, tied around the horizontal strip  and topped with a black button, tied on with Silver Curling Ribbon.

A sentiment from Whimsy’s Friendship ticket sentiments was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with Spellbinders retired Five in one Tag die. The embossed part was colored with the markers I used for the image background. The sentiment was tied to the bow with the same curling ribbon that was used for tying on the button.

The layers were adhered to the card base, a 4 3/4″ x 11″ piece of white cardstock folded in half. Parts of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl were adhered above and underneath the the bow and three Baby Bling Rhinestones on the lower left corner finish off the card.

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