Elyssa’s Birthday card

March 6, 2017

My gorgeous granddaughter Elyssa turns 9 today.  She is growing into a lovely young lady.  We have a lot in common – she loves to cook and is always helping me in the kitchen when she is here.  We also share our love of memory keeping and she has album full of her memories already!  We had a lovely day out together to buy her birthday present, although we did have to take Pop with us which slowed us down a little.  We also enjoyed lunch together to finish off our morning.  Today I am sharing with you the card I made for her.

I cut a square of Whisper White card using one of the Layering Squares Framelits Dies and used Old Olive and Bermuda Bay Watercolour Pencils to add some light colour to the card.  I used my Aqua Painter to move the colour and create a background. elyssas-9th-birthday-2 I attached the Whisper White square to a Bermuda Bay scalloped square cut using the same dies and attached it to scored and folded Thick A4 Whisper White card.  I stamped the greeting onto the card front using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I stamped the image from the Beautiful You stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured the image using Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral Watercolour Pencils and a Blender Pen.  I cut the image and attached it to the card front.elyssas-9th-birthday-3

To decorate the inside I used one of the images that can be used to colour the dresses of the images in the Beautiful You stamp set to create a background for my greeting.  The image is stamped onto whisper White card using Bermuda Bay ink which I have stamped once onto scrap paper first to give a lighter image.  I stamped the greeting from the Beautiful You stamp set over the top using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I attached the stamped card to Bermuda Bay card before attaching the panel to the inside of the card.

I especially love this particular image from this stamp set as it creates such a happy, carefree feeling.  It also fits perfectly with Elyssa’s wish to grow up to be a dancing fairy princess.  I hope she always lives her life with passion and fulfils her dreams.

I’d love to know what you think of this card.
