Hi! I’ve got what I believe to be the simplest birthday card I’ve ever created today. I had to go with Bee Mine from Mo’s Digital Pencil, colored during Cathy Racoosin’s last 30 day challenge back in June.
I colored her with my Copics in the colors shown at the bottom of this post, and diecut her using a stitched rectangle die from My Favorite Things. I added her with lots of foam tape to a piece of Papertrey Ink Aqua Mist cardstock that I embossed using a quilted backdrop die from Lawn Fawn, and added some 2 mm Kort & Godt pearls to the background for a little bit of extra interest.
I diecut my sentiment using a small stitched circle die, also from MFT. I punched out a 1″ circle out of some Aqua Mist cardstock that I glued my stitched circle to. I stamped a Norsk Stempelblad AS sentiment in a combination of Doll Pink ink from Simon Says Stamp and Autumn Rose ink from Papertrey Ink. Neither of the colors matchet my image on their own, but together they were perfect.
As you can see from this photo, my main panel is popped up from the rest of the card, keeping the focus on her.
