Hi out there! I made this birthday card for my goddaughter Sawyer. It was her 9th birthday the other day. I chose real girly colors for her. I LOVE the Bella Stamps; so I inked up Billboardabella in adirondack espresso and stamped her onto PTI white cardstock. THen I colored her with my new Ciao Copics markers. Next I picked the paper colors that I wanted to use: I went with Stampin Up perfect plum, pale plum and the Designer Paper prints pack from SU. I like the double sided dp paper and I wanted to make sure that both sides of the paper showed in the card. I used the scor-pal to crease the paper over with a crisp look. I used the merci stamp set to stamp the image in the background with my versa mark pad. I also stamped the flower from the friendship blooms set and added a bauble.
Sawyer did not believe that I made the card ( I guess that's a compliment from a 9 year old), it took some convincing. I offered to have a card making demonstration and project session with her Brownie Troop- she was excited about that! The teacher in me would love to share the joy of stamping with them.
