Hi everyone!! We are all so happy to have you hopping with us today!!
Here is the birthday card I made for Jen!! It has LOTS of purple... after all, she is the Purple Scrapbooker! :)
The card is shaped like a cloud. I've been obsessed with shaped cards lately, I don't know what it is but they are so fun to make!! As you can see, I used my Gypsy to weld two cloud shapes together. When I do this, the overlap creates a flat side on the card base when it's folded, so I always cut an additional top layer to cover the entire card body.
Here's the little butterfly I added to the cloud. I put Glossy Accents and Stickles on the butterfly wings as well as placing a few dark purple rhinestones to represent the flutter trail. The wings are curled up and propped up with pop dots while the butterfly's body is glue straight to the card.
I just freehanded the trail and spacing for the rhinestones. I used cute plaid paper for the cute but uncommon purple cloud! :) Here you can see all the little stitches I doodled on Jen's card.
I stamped the "happy birthday" sentiment on a scrap of the purple polka dot paper and used a square punch to cut the little "v"s to create the little banner shape. I layered up the sentiment and had to punch each layer as I built it up. This banner is added with pop dots.
More stitching and another stamp for the inside.
