Hello and good morning! It's Gloria with you today. I made a pretty, pink birthday card to share. I don't get to use much "little girl" pink, since my children are young adults and none of them like pink! I let out my inner grandmother today and made a sweet pink card!
To create this card, start out by inking the birthday sentiment from the Birthday Shape Set with cupid pigment ink. Cover the inked chipboard with bubble gum scented embossing powder and heat set. (Yes, I said bubble gum scented embossing powder! And it really does smell like bubble gum, even after it's heated and cooled!)
Ink one of the shapes from the Little Dancers set with pepper pigment ink. Allow the ink to dry.
Create the card base by cutting one piece of black cardstock to 8" x 6". Cut a second piece of black cardstock to 8 1/2" x 6". Score at 1/2" from the top edge. Fold and burnish on the score line. Attach strong, double-sided tape to the 1/2" tab. Attach the two pieces of cardstock together to create a top-fold card, 8" tall and 6" wide.
Cut dark pink cardstock to 7 7/8" x 5 7/8" and attach the panel to the card front. Cut pink dotted paper to 7 3/4" x 5 3/4" and attach the panel to the card front. Glue the birthday chipboard sentiment to the top of the card, approximately 1/2" from the top edge.
Use a stitched die cut template to cut textured white cardstock to approximately 5 1/4" x 4" and attach the panel to the left side of the card. Use a stitched die cut template to cut dark pink cardstock to 4 3/4" x 3 1/2" and attach the panel to the white cardstock. Use a stitched scallop die cut template to cut printed cardstock to approximately 4 1/2" x 3 1/4". Attach the printed panel to the dark pink cardstock.
Attach the large doily (Intricate Cardstock Doily Set) to the card front as shown. Glue the little dancer shape to the left side of the card.
Glue a selection of flowers to the card, overlapping the doily as shown. Place two decorative pins into the top right section of flowers. Place pink and black sequins onto the card as desired.
Cut two pieces of dark pink cardstock to 7 7/8" x 5 7/8" and attach them to the inside panels of the card. Cut two pieces of white cardstock to 7 3/4" x 5 3/4" and attach them to the dark pink panels. Stamp a sentiment onto the white panel on the inside of the card with black ink. Cut strips of pink dot paper and attach them to the top and bottom panels.
Thanks for looking!
