I typically stick with the good ole standard A2 card size. But once in a while, I will try something new to me. Then, I wonder why I haven't done this sooner.
So this cutie I have had colored, in a stack of die cuts for some time now. She is a fairy I purchased from one of my favorite Etsy shops for digital stamps, Prettygrafikdesign. She is colored with Copics, layerd on a couple of pieces of cardstock that I sprayed with shimmer mist.
I added a layer of of white cardstock that I used my New Bo Bunny die. I then layered all of that on some Recollections purple patterned paper. I added that same patterned paper to the sides. I also used my new Lawn Fawn stamp set to make the balloons and cut them out with their coordinating die. I used the Happy Birthday sentiment from the same set. This I centered at the bottom of the card using my Perfect Stamp positioner. ( I so am in love with that stamp positioner!)
I learned how to do the Center Step Card by watching the tutorial over on Splitcoast Stampers. You can watch it here. While I was making the card I had to make cuts from 1 inch to, I think 6 1/2 inches one inch from each end of the card. This became a challenge because I have completely rubbed off the 1inch mark and any marks up to 2 inches on my a paper trimmer. So I just had to guess where the 1 inch would be. This means I need a new trimmer, right? 😉
This makes a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card, which means I need to make an envelope to hold it. But it is such a stinkin' cute card. I am so happy with it.
I did color the balloons with copics also. I added some clear Wink of Stella to add shimmer to the balloons. I couldn't resist sneaking in 3 Nuvo drops in silver to add a bit of something extra.
I am entering this in Creative Craft Cottage Challenge #83: Shaped Cards or More than one Fold.
