Pretty Little Studio: Wild Thing

Sunday, April 28, 2019

Morning, y'all!  Happy Sunday!  I'm super excited to share, with you all, the sweet, birthday card, that I recently made for my nephew.  It happens to be up on the Pretty Little Studio blog today; and believe it or not, this tiny canvas utilizes elements from seven different collections.  Check it out!

I started his card by anchoring a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of an old, Pretty Little Studio, black and white, polka dot print, to the white, cardstock, card face, with gold-threaded, straight, machine stitching.  I then set it aside to trim the bottom of a Just Relax 3x4 Pocket Card with a portion of a woodgrain Shine 4x6 Card.  Their combined edges were framed with more gold-threaded, straight, machine stitching; and their connection was wrapped, three times, with a length of white string, tied in a bow.
It was then popped off the surface of the prepped, card surface with foam tape and topped with the precious Amos Cowboy Vintage Die Cut, popped up with more foam tape.
A Cactus Die Cut, which had a Fall Away Arrow shot right into its pot, was tucked behind the cowboy's left side.
His right side was topped with "HAPPY DAYS" Feeling Blessed and "BIRTHDAY BOY" Party Hat Word Flag Cut-Aparts, as well as a "wild thing" Good Things Black Word Sticker, which I used as the main sentiment for this creation.
A kiss of Glossy Accents gives a little, extra shine and dimension to the apple; and a trio of Spain Star Die Cuts complete the look.
Thanks so much for humbling me with a visit!  Have a blessed week, friends!
