Mimi and her Icecream


Todays card has been created from one of Janet Roberts new Pink Gem stamps http://www.pinkgemdesigns.com/ , this one has been designed from one of Janets gorgeous photos of her beautiful granddaughter, I do so hope she likes what Ive done with it, and I hope you do to.

Ive stamped the image onto white card and coloured it with my Faber-Castell pencils and then because I couldnt find a die big enough to cut her out, I decided to use the spotted frame and cut and put the image behind it. The frame was cut out then Ive used a white inkpad to bring out the spots around the edges. Ive then stuck the stamped image behind ready to stick to my card. The greeting is one of my stamps from Flourishes.

Anyway Ive then made a base card from A3 card and cut it to and 8"x 8" size, for the first layer Ive used pale blue pearlescent card and then one of the red papers from the Bearly Mine Extreme Designs Cd, and onto this I have put 3 layers of paper, two of red pearlescent paper and another of the Bearly Mine Design papers, but I have layered them up alternatively but first punched along the edge with my Martha Stewart Border punch, to give a frilled edge to them. Around the whole thing I have stuck a flowered ribbon, and then stuck my stamped image on top. The greeting was then punched out with one of the ribbon labels from Spellbinders, I have then stuck some brads through the holes and attached it to the card with foam.

The flowers are some of the Prima Hydrangea petals with a brad through the centre and a rose stuck on top of these. I have also hung a heart charm from the bottom flower and this is one that I purchased from Mandy's shop . Ive then punched out some leaves, then with some silicone glue attached them to the card before sticking the flowers on top.
