And Happy New Year!!! Hope everyone had fun ringing in the new year! Here's a long 9 1/4" x 4" card I made for the latest MFT guest designer challenge which is to paper piece! My birthday was yesterday (yes, on New Years' and yes, my mother calls me her hangover and no, we're not going to discuss what age I am now! ha!) so why not make a birthday card?! The PIs I used are Hello Cupcake, Crazy for Daisies (inside) and Aim High. The sentiment and little frog are from the Feeling Froggy PI set. I used the Flat Bottom Clouds dienamics to cut out the blue dp then filled the cut outs with white corrugated flat bottom clouds. The Branches with leaves dienamic was perfect to have the Mini Pennant "Happy Birthday" banners hanging from, which is stamped using the Banner day alpha.
Now for some detail shots... here you can see that I stamped the cherry onto textured cardstock and added glossy accents to make it shine. I also hand cut every. single. sprinkle. on that cupcake! The frosting was stamped onto a "chocolate" textured cardstock then layered on the polka dot dp cupcake "liner".
Her shoes were also stamped on and cut out of textured cardstock. The "grass" was cut out using the medium simply scallops dienamic.
This sweet girl has two different dp's used on her dress and look! Her socks match the top half of her dress, then I pieced her white shoes on top of those and added more glossy accents to them so it looks like she's wearing some darling patent leather shoes. Also, you can see that sweet little frog has also been paper pieced and has glossy accents on him because after all, frogs are shiny, right?!
And now on the inside I used the First Class Friend dienamic for the sentiment which is accented by a line of silver pearls.
Little Miss Crazy for Daisies has her dress paper pieced using two different dp's, as well. Her shoes were also cut out using textured cardstock.
Silver brads on the front and faux stitching inside and out finish everything off. Thanks a ton for stopping by! Here's to a CRAFTY and EXCITING new year!!!
