Pretty Little Studio: Happiest Birthday

Wednesday, February 1, 2017

Morning, friends!  Tomorrow is kind of a big day around our house.  Kaden is turning three-years-old.  Sigh.  Give me a minute.  Sniff.  Sniff.  So, I thought it would be fun to put Pretty Little Studio's Ed Elephant Vintage Die Cut to work on a card celebrating his big day.
I started this card by trimming the bottom edge of a piece of Woodland's Blue Sky patterned paper with an angled piece of Tinsel Town's Gift Wrap print.  Before securing them both, to a white, cardstock frame, with white-threaded, straight, machine stitches, I overlaid the bottom print with a piece of clear cardstock and stuffed it with lots of sequins, including our Crystal 4mm and Gift Wrap Sequins, and a few Summer Night Die-Cut stars.  A length of gingham ribbon was wrapped between the prints; tied, in a bow, near the left edge of the prepped piece; and embellished with a turquoise button, laced with Baker's Twine, tied in a bow.
The sky portion of the card was then stamped, in Jet Black ink, with the "happiest birthday" sentiment...
and the center was filled in with that sweet, little Ed Elephant Vintage Die Cut mentioned above, which I dressed up with a kiss of glitter, before adhering the entire prepped piece, with foam tape, to the white, cardstock, card face to complete the look.
Now, I'm off to get my little bear's birthday packages wrapped.  Thanks, as always, for stopping by!  Have a wonderful Wednesday!
