I made another card with Chi Chi Memories ‘Hello Girl’ this time in the form of a birthday card, and using a more conventional hair colour!
coredinations cardstock in sky and pale blue, black onyx sparkle cardstock from AMD
black micron pen, white pigment gel pen, half pearls, stripy ribbon , black ribbon, red ‘sew lovely ‘ papermania paper , black and white bexley black papermania paper
chi chi memories ‘hello girl’
happy birthday stamp from forever friends
2 label dies from sizzix sizzlets
8×8 square card base
we ‘r’ memory keepers crop-a-dile corner chomper
3D foam pads
spellbinders lacy circles
sizzix circles #2
AMD white 300 gsm stamping cardstock
anita’s tacky glue
SU not quite navy ink pad
promarkers – sandstone, gold, mustard, pastel yellow and buttercup for hair
burgundy, crimson and cardinal for headband and shoes
true blue ,azure and sky blue for the dress, and black, cool grey 5 and 4 for tights
I layered the light blue cardstock on top of the black, leaving a couple of mm gap between card blank edge, black , and blue and cut two equal sized pieces of red paper to fit at both sides. for the central piece , I layered black cardstock again with the bexley black/white paper, and rounded the corners on the right hand side using the 1/4 inch corner chomper
I then stamped the sentiment on to some white stamping cardstock, and cut it with the smaller of the two largest label dies , placed near the top as i was only using the top edge.
I then used the largest with the sky blue coredinations cardstock to layer behind it. this i glued slightly behind the middle section on the card
I made a hand tied blue and adhered a black ribbon strip first to the bottom edge of the middle section. I glued the stripy bow onto this using silicone glue
I cut out a sky blue circle using one of the spellbinders lacy circles, and a plain white circle to fit inside it.
once the image was coloured, I fussy cut it and placed it onto the white inner circle, and added a couple of strokes of promarker pen around the feet to ‘ground’ the image.
I glued the image to the white circle and that in turn to the blue circle. I put 3d foam pads on the back of that one and adhered it to the card.
I finally used my micron and white gel pens to faux stitch around the edge panels, the sentiment and the circles the image was on, and added 3 half pears to the top left corner and the bottom right.
hope you like it,
