Pretty Little Studio: Two-Year-Old Birthday

Tuesday, October 3, 2017

Morning, y'all!  I'm up on the Pretty Little Studio blog today, sharing the card that I made my nephew for his second birthday.  Enjoy!
 
I started this card by anchoring our Shine from Within and Beach Bum prints, onto the white, cardstock, card face, with bright-blue-threaded, straight, machine stitching.  I then adhered the Pirate Anchor Mini Word strip, trimmed down to size, along their combined, vertical, left edge.  Everything was then topped with the I'm Two Today Vintage Die Cut, popped up with foam tape...
and anchored with both a "what a special day" I Heart You Die Cut...
and Spring Fling Animal Die Cut, both of which were popped up with more foam tape.
Before the large I'm Two Today Vintage Die Cut was adhered in place, I also wrapped the entire card face, along the vertical, right edge of the Pirate Anchor Mini Word strip, three times with a length of white string, tied in a bow near its top edge.  A Fluffy Clouds Die Cut, Spring Fling Animal Die Cut butterfly, and GeoTag Sticker complete the look.
And just for good measure, I couldn't resist including a different angle to showcase all that fabulous dimension and wrap things up.
 
Before I run, I also wanted to share October's exclusive freebies.  They're designed by Melissa herself and available with any $24 or more purchase.  Go get yours today!
Thanks so much for humbling me with a visit, friends!  Be blessed!
