Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday! It's week 66 of our WSC Getting Sketchy (April 4 - April 10). We have another fabulous sketch for you this week! Meet MFTWSC66!
My friend Lisa asked me to make a card for her friend who had a little girl. When Lisa had her daughter I made her a card and she keeps it her little girl's baby book. I was excited to create a card for her friend...I love to be able to personalize a card!
I started with the darling Pure Innocence Girl and Baby and stamped her onto X Press It Blending Card. I colored her with Copic Markers and paper pieced her dress with the same papers I've used on the card, Victoria Park from Lily Bee Designs. I cut her out and popped her up onto circles cut with the new Circle STAX 1 Die-Namics and Circle STAX 2 Die-Namics, and I added a rhinestone circle for a bit of shine.
For the vertical panel of the sketch I used the fabulous new Fishtail Flags STAX Die-Namics, which are seriously swoon-worthy. I added a bit more interest with a small panel cut with the Simply Scallops Die-Namics tucked next to the flag.
I used the Mini Banner Day Alphabet to stamp out the baby's name onto a panel cut with the First Place Award Ribbon Die-Namics. It only took two tries to line it up correctly! LOL. I added a layered flower cut from patterned paper using the Pretty Posies Die-Namics and topped it off with a button cut with the Button Quartet Die-Namics. I added some Flax Twine (this color is SO delish) as well.
For the inside I added more patterned paper, another border cut with the Simply Scallops Die-Namics, and a sentiment from Pure Innocence Girl and Baby. A bit more Flax Twine ties it (pun intended) into the design on the front. I used Bubblegum Cardstock for the cardbase and Kraft Cardstock for the main panel.
Here are the Die-Namics I've used on my card:
