This is a very exciting moment for me, as this is my first time hosting a challenge with Little Red Wagon. I'm glad you can't tell how nervous I am. My first challenge is called "CHILD'S PLAY" and I would like to see projects that are for a child. Birthday card, Valentine's, Easter, or just because, any occasion is fine! New baby, toddler or even teenager, they all work! This week is all about the kids!
January has been a very busy month for my girls and birthday parties. I have spent nearly every weekend running one or the other, and sometimes both of them to parties for their friends (usually on opposite ends of the city, with overlapping times). So of course my card for this week is a birthday card.
Since I am quite tired of what seems like a mountain of snow outside of my house, I wanted to have a card that really had me dreaming of warmer weather. For that I turned to one of my new Kraftin' Kimmie stamps called Summer Swingin! The paper is Little Yellow Bicycle "Hello Spring!"
Of course this isn't just any card. I decided to have a bit of fun and made an easel card.
|Card base is 11" x 4.25 (scored at 2.75" and 5.5"). The card front is 4.25" x 5.5"|
The image is coloured with Copic markers. I also re-stamped the image on the pink background paper so when I fussy cut the Copic image, you can still see some of the detailed swirls underneath.
The inside sentiment is from Stampendous "Birthday Wish". The bottom portion of the card is raised up to support the card front. I die cut the flowers from pattern paper using My Favourite Things Layers Rose. I ran the pink flower through my Xyron and sprinkled it with Glitter Ritz fine white glitter. The Sweetest Wishes sentiment is from Tiddly inks set "Sweets for My Sweet".
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will play along with this week's "Child's Play" challenge. Just pop over to Little Red Wagon to link up your creations and remember to check out what "childish" projects the other Girlfriends have created this week.
