Today was grand-niece Madelyn's 2nd birthday - and the family gathered at her house to celebrate this grand occasion and I, of course, made her a personalized card! This is a photo of Madelyn that her parents took during a recent trip to Disney. I just printed it on a piece of white cardstock and cut it out.
I started with a piece of kraft card and stenciled it using a WV Check Mate stencil with WV Archival Pink Peony Ink. Then I sponged the edges with Ranger Distress Tea Die ink. I added Idea-ology Chit Chat Stickers, Remnant Rubs/Botanical and Label letters.
I outlined the Chit Chat Stickers with a black Stabilo pencil then rubbed over the lines with a wet finger to smudge them. I added 3 wood veneer stars from Studio Calico. I cut a 2 using a PTI number die. The banner was cut with a die from Winnie and Walter. The Happy Birthday is from Keep It Simple Birthday II from PTI.
I made this just a card front - and adhered a die cut easel to the back so it can stand up on a shelf for display.
My niece loved my card for Madelyn - and we had a wonderful family gathering to celebrate her day.
I'm linking my card to the following challenges:
The background is stenciled, I stamped on the banner, I added rub-ons, stickers and a banner.
