Pretty Little Studio: HB2U

Saturday, September 2, 2017

Welcome to the weekend, y'all!  I'm up on the Pretty Little Studio blog this evening, sharing a birthday card I made for my sister-in-law.  It utilizes lots of goodies from our Blooming Hearts Collection and a number of glorious, gold accents from With All My Heart and Here Comes the Sun.  Love!
I started this card by securing a couple strips of Cherish Vellum Tape, just left of vertical center, to a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Dream Big's Shine patterned print and, in turn, anchoring the patterned paper, to the white, cardstock, card face, with gold-threaded, straight, machine stitching.  A Picture Perfect Die Cut Polaroid frame, backed with an Our Story Journaling Card, cut to size, as well as a snippet of cheesecloth for texture, and popped up with foam tape, forms the foundation for my "HB2U" sentiment which was created from Gold Metallic A to Z Die Cuts and a single Gold Metallic Number Die Cut and popped up with more foam tape.  A "live in the moment" I Heart You Die Cut was hand-cut into a pennant and tucked between the lettering.
The top half of the Polaroid die cut was crowned with a Picture Perfect wreath, dressed up with a number of Blooming Die Cuts; hand-cut, from With All My Heart's Metallic Gold Lovely print, flowers; and a scrumptious, double, white, seam binding ribbon bow, studded with a single, white pearl.
A sprinkling of Snowcone Sequins bring out a touch more of that soft peach color and complete the look.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful weekend, friends!
