Hi everyone! Happy Friday!!
I am SO excited to be a part of a Birthday Blog Hop for sweet Bar today!!! I have the pleasure of being on the My Favorite Things Design Team (still can't believe that!) with Bar, and she is as sweet as she is talented!! I am ALWAYS in awe of her perfectly executed creations!!
Did you make your way here from my sweet friend Christina's Blog? If so, perfect! If not, please head on over to the fabulous Tammy's Blog! She is the mastermind of today's hop!!
For my card for Bar, I started with Pure Innocence Something Special Just For You from My Favorite Things. I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X Press It Blending Card and colored her with Copic Markers. I cut out and embossed her with Petite Oval Nestabilities and then added some crystal glitter to her crown and the bow on the package she is toting. I also added a Swarovski Crystal to the buckle of each of her shoes.
I paper pieced her dress with the same paper I used on my card, Summer Days from Echo Park Papers and I added a border with the new Double Scallop Border Die-Namics. I embossed the Berrylicious Cardstock panel with the Seeing Spots Embossing folder and added tons of machine stitching. I used Razzle Berry Cardstock for the card base. MFT cardstock is super sturdy (100 lb)...LOVE it!
I created a little tag with the Notched Tag Die-Namics. The frame around it, from the Notched Tag Stamp Set, was stamped in Pink Passion and the sentiment, "HB Bar" was created with the Banner Day Alphabet. I finished off the front with some saddle stitch ribbon, a big bow and two white brads.
For the inside, I stamped this sweetie again, this time in Cool Caribbean, and added another strip of the same Summer Days patterned paper. I love this sentiment, "May every part of your birthday be happy" and I stamped it over the silhouette a bit. Some more machine stitching completes the inside.
Here are the Die-Namics I've used on my card today:
Bar, I hope you have a WONDERFUL Birthday filled with love and laughter!
The next stop on Bar's Birthday Hop is at the amazing, fabulous, awesome Kim's Blog (and I am not just saying that cause she's my boss...grin!).
