Sassy Lady Birthday Card
My friend, Eileen, has a birthday this week and I wanted to send her a card that would make her laugh. I think this sassy lady will do the trick. I made sure she had lots of bling!
I've had this stamp for quite awhile and just love adding all the 3-D embellishments that make her so fun.
RECIPE: I stamped the lady twice on WC paper, painted with re-inkers and a small brush. After she was dry, I cut her out and started laying on the glitz. I poked three holes and pulled through the fiber around her neck. I added glitter for her earrings and Crystal Effects to make her lips shiny. I cut out the flower on her hat and her sunglasses and popped them up. I also added some black glitter and gel pen to make the glasses really sparkle. I used Nestabilities to cut my mats and make the lady appear as if she was popping out of the frame. I didn't have any brightly colored feathers, otherwise I would have added those to the plummage on her hat.
This was such a fun card to make. I wish I could see Eileen's face when she opens it.
Happy Birthday Eileen!!!
Til Next Time,
