A Little Princess

Tuesday, October 29, 2013

I have a great niece who is having a tiara party for her first birthday in a few weeks, so I made her a sweet tiara birthday card. :~)
The image was colored with Copics and gussied up with Stickles. The border of the circle die cut was embossed with an Enhancing Elements Spellbinders die, painted with silver paint, and blinged out with more Stickles. The yellow layer is a Nestie die cut that I dry embossed, but before embossing it, I inked the embossing folder with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink to give it a letterpressed look. The white flowers came from the bargain bin at Michaels. I gave them a touch of pink with Spun Sugar Distress Ink and Diamond Stickles. I stamped the solid gray base with a rose image in white ink.

On the inside, I stamped the rose image again on the gray base, and before I cut the white personalization panel, I inked the die with yellow ink to give just the embossed edge of the die cut some color. The rose image on the panel is the same image I had stamped on the base. The sentiment is a freebie I got from Verve in my last order.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
