Today we’re celebrating the birthday of the FABULOUS Jodi Collins!!! If you’ve come here from Joanne Basile’s blog, you’re on the right track. If you just happened by today, then you might want to hop back over to our hostess Karen Motz’s blog to start from the beginning.
Here’ the card I created for Jodi using SSSC97 (Karen Giron’s Sweet Sunday Sketch from last week.) Click on it to see it larger.
This card is 9.25″ x 4″ to fit in a standard business size envelope and I had tons of fun with it. I even got out a full sized background stamp and used it…yes I said background stamp…remember those? The cute little baker girl is from MFT as is the felt and the rolled rose die (pretty sure I didn’t use that die correctly, but I did end up with a flower of some sort – LOL!) Most of the rest of the card elements (including designer paper and stamps) are SU. To get the strip of punched paper ribbon behind the girl’s legs I just cut slits with a craft knife and slippped it in. The awning is made with the Word Window Punch and 2 different sheets of patterned paper. Final touch is Bisque Liquid Pearls. I just love the new LP formulation! It’s even pearlier than before and I find I don’t have as much issue with it forming little points.
Jodi – I am so happy to call you friend and feel so lucky that I’ve actually had the chance to meet you in person! I wish we weren’t on opposite coasts…and if you were close by I’d really bake something for you…today you’ll have to settle for papercrafted sweets! Have a wonderful day my Long Island friend!
And now it’s time to hop to The Paper Landscaper – Denise Marzec. Thanks for stopping by today!
