Hi everyone! Happy Friday!
A few weeks ago was the end of Meredith's soccer season, and I volunteered to make a thank you card for her coach, from the whole team, to thank him for all of his time and hard work! I wanted something really personalized and so I decided to make a card and represent each and every one of the "Little Ladies".
I decided to create a stair step fold card and I found an awesome tutorial right HERE on SCS. I started with a card base of Blue Raspberry and once I had my lines scored and folded, I stamped eleven little girls using Pure Innocence I Get A Kick Out Of You. I masked all of their hands so that I could also stamp the soccer ball. They were stamped onto X Press It Blending Card, colored with Copic Markers and then fussy cut out. Using a Copic Multliner, I wrote each of the girls' names on their shirts to personalize them.
Before attaching the girls to the card, I added strips of "grass" cut with the Fresh Cut Grass Die-Namics cut from Gumdrop Green Cardstock. I also added a sun cut from Lemon Drop Yellow Cardstock using the Sunshine Die-Namics, and clouds cut from Sweet Tooth Cardstock using the Flat Bottom Clouds Die-Namics, as it was either cloudy and freezing or sweltering hot for each game this season!
Here are individual shots of each row of girls. For Meredith's friend Lexi in the middle of row #1, I drew in some glasses with a Copic Multliner. Her mom loved that I added that little detail. I added a banner cut with the First Place Award Ribbon Die-Namics to the front and I stamped "Little Ladies '12" using the Mini Banner Day Alphabet.
Here is a closeup of the second row. You can see my little Meredith portrayed in paper in this row.
And finally, the last row. Meredith sat with me while I colored all of these cuties, making sure I colored each girl with the appropriate color hair.
Here are the Copic Markers I've used on this card:
Here are the Die-Namics I've used on my card:
Since my Avery took the spotlight on Wednesday with my MFTWSC card, I had to give equal blog time to my precious Meredith. She just turned six and is the light of my life...here she is playing goalie. Isn't she a cutie pie? LOVE my girl. LOVE her.
Thanks SO much for stopping by!!
