Pretty Little Studio: Bring on the Magic

Sunday, December 30, 2018

Morning, y'all!  With 2019 being right around the corner, I thought it fitting to create something magically paper-crafted in honor of such.  I LOVE to combine Pretty Little Studio's array of gorgeous collections; and this bitty one, which happens to be up on the Pretty Little Studio blog today, encompasses no fewer than six.
I started this card by anchoring a 5-1/4" x 4" piece of the Gold Metallic Confetti print, to my 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" white cardstock, card base, with gold-threaded, straight, machine stitching.  Using the teal Sprinkles Bookmark as a template, I then hand-cut a Celebrate 3x4 Pocket Card and "Bring on the Magic" Magic 3x4 Journaling Card to the same size.  The left side of the latter, which happens to serve as my sentiment, was dressed up with a "CELEBRATE" Party Hat Word Flag...
and "2019" Hugs & Kisses Mini ABC Stickers...
before securing all three pennants together with gold-threaded, straight, machine stitching, which frames the hand-cut bits, as well as a length of white string, tied in a bow, and popping them up, with foam tape, over a snippet of cheesecloth for texture.
A scattering of die-cut, from a happy mix of It's Your Birthday Collection prints, stars, as well as a couple handfuls of Golden and Clear Skies Sequins, completes the look.
Thanks so much for visiting!  Have a safe and memorable New Year, friends!  I'll see you next year!  XOXO
