Girls Birthday Card with KaiserCraft Candy Lane
I hope you like pink lol. My daughters fave colour is pink. We are going to her friends birthday tomorrow and my 8 year old dd wanted to make her a card just from her :). So I was thinking the Authentique Uncommon pad. My dd saw the Kaiser Candy Lane and we were off and running lol.
We used the largest Lifestyle Crafts Blossom die to cut the card base. As you can see in the pic we folded the card base and hung a petal over the edge of the fold to create and opening card. Around this dd blended Worn Lipstick Distress Ink.
She then chose the orange with pink foil paper for the next layer cut with the next size down Blossom die. On top of this we layered another pp with cupcakes and cherries on it. Out of the teapot pp we used a punch to cut some butterflies and stuck them around the outside of the circle with matte accents.
With a green flowered pp we cut a small circle and she Chose the Happy Birthday sticker to go on top. The sticker in the middle of the middle butterfly was originally on the circle but it fell off and got lost for a bit so dd decided on some pink hearts instead :) (I found it and stuck it in the middle of the pink butterfly)
We put the circle on the card to see how it looked and didn't like it. We cut a plain circle and the butterfly circle from Spellbinders. Of course after we embossed the butterflies with the tan mat dd had to have the butterfly circle as her mat. She inked the edges with more worn lipstick and then stuck the pp circle on top. She then used some foam tape to lift it off the page a little and front of card was done :)
A coordinating stack, a few stickers and dies make for a quick and easy card :). Not bad for an 8 yr old at all...
Thanks for stopping by.
PS here are a few pics dd took :)
