Sorry that it seems as though I have been M.I.A. for a while. I have been working on cards for a couple of family members, whom of which follow my blog. So I can't very well go getting excited, and post them before their birthdays. LOL.
Any Who. Here is one of my latest projects, and I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. I began with a 5"x7" card. I decided to use the old ballerina cut that was already laying around in my misc. pile. It was cut using the Joys of the Season cart.
I really loved how the ballerina looked on this paper. In the top left-hand corner, it looks as though the sun is shining down on her. And the flowers and swirls, make it seem as though she is standing in a garden. I thought it looked very elegant.
I used some pink tulle for the skirt of the dress, and then attached silver adhesive gemstones all over the tulle. The front "Happy Birthday" sentiment is from the Inkadinkado stamp "Just Saying" stamp set. I cut the layered cartouche from the From My Kitchen cart--the pink cartouche @ 2.5" and the white at 2.75".
I used glitter glue on the white cartouche to match the glittery flowers on the paper. I pop-dotted the sentiment and used the adhesive gemstones again.
I printed the sentiment on the inside from my computer. It says "Throughout your life, I hope you always choose to dance! Happy Birthday!" I used brown ink, French Script font, and more adhesive gems.
Overall, I thought it turned out to be pretty. (:
