A Card for Two Challenges - Mo's and Cute Card Thursday
Todays card has been created for two challenges, Mo's Sketch and Cute Card Thursday they want Pink and Grey, so I think that this card will cover both of them. Ive used this lovely teenager from Mo for my card and Im actually making it for my eldest granddaughter, she will be 15 this year, and like most teenagers she looks amazing like the image so I felt it was exactly what I needed to create this card. Ive printed her out onto a piece of white card and coloured her with my copic pens, after which I used my oval Nestabilitie die to cut her out, now you might be asking how did I get her right leg to hang over the edge, I cut this out first then popped my die under the cut out bit and then ran it through my cuttlebug. The scalloped oval as also punched out and I mounted them to together with some foam tape. The sentiment is also done in the same way.
My base card is a 8"x 8" white card with a first layer of grey card, with one of four designs I picked from one of the Nitwit Downloads I have, sorry I carnt remember which one Ive used for this card, anyway the first layer is a pink, green, grey and white strip one, which I have stuck to the grey card. The second and third layers have been cut in strips and with my daisy border punch Ive used down both sides theyve been stuck down the left hand side, over this I have stuck my last mount a pink strip with another pretty pink patterned paper stuck on across the bottom, but I did put a pink ribbon across this as well.
After I did this I positioned my mounted image to the right handside and my sentiment to the bottom left, then punched out some flourishes and stuck the to the top on the left with some pink pearls scattered amoung the swirls. To finish of Ive created two flowers from some of the left over paper and popped pink pearl brads through the centres with some silver flower spacers, from the bottom one Ive hung a heart charm. Before fixing them to my card I punched out some leaves and arranged them in a circle the positioned my flowers on top.
