Here's what I came up with~
- card size: 5 1/2 x 5 1/2
- stamps: Birthday Party Emma, TAC Birthday Blessings-retired
- paper: Basic Grey Lemonade, SU cardstock,
- ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, SU creamy caramel,
- others: copics, copic glitter pens, CTMH ribbon, SU punches, diamond glaze, flowers, Dress It Up Light Sapphire crystal, Diamond stickles,
I stamped my new Sweet n' Sassy Birthday Party Emma onto my cardstock with Memento ink and colored her with copics. Of course I had to have some sparkle so I added some accents with my copic glitter pens to her bows and the bag.
Once I decided on what papers to use, I cut them out and then thought about how I was going to add sewing. hmmmm.... While deciding I sponged SU Creamy Caramel on all the edges of the papers.
I decided to be brave and use my sewing machine for the sewing...eek, I hope I remember how to change the thread and bobbin...hehehe! Sadly I didn't and couldn't find my manual..thank goodness for online manuals!!
I then decided on my sentiment, punched out my ovals, sponged ink on them, then adhered everything down and finished the card by adding embellishments and some diamond glaze to the balloon. The flower center still looked too bare after I added the crystal so I filled it in with Diamond stickles and also put a drop or two on the two tabs on the side.
