Hi, everyone! Another Wednesday means another Mo Manning cutie on my blog. This time I’ve turned Two Jill into a belated birthday card. She’s adorable even when upset, so I thought she was perfect for a belated birtday card. Not that I tend to forget birthdays, I’m pretty good at remembering them, so I’m not sure when I’ll get to give this one away, but it’s still nice to have on hand.
I colored her up on X-Press It blending card with my Copics. It’s been a while, so I don’t recall which Copics I used, but I’m guessing I chose the R80s for the pink and the E40s for the brown.
I decided to diecut my colored piece using one of the rectangle dies from My Favorite Things with faux stitching. I also ran a white cardstock panel through a We R Memory Keepers embossing folder to give some interest to the background. I glued the dry embossed piece to the pink (Hibiscus Burst cardstock from Papertrey Ink) cardbase, and added my stitched rectangle on top of that with some dimensional adhesive.
I needed a sentiment that matched my image, so I decided to go with a belated birthday greeting from a Huldra designstudio stamp set. I heat embossed the sentiment on some pink cardstock and diecut it into a banner using a die from My Favorite Things. I added another fishtail banner behind it in brown and popped them both up from the image with some dimensional adhesive.
Here you can see the dimension, with the stitched rectangle popped up from the background, and the banners popped up from the stitched rectangle. I decided to add a few Papirdesign enamel dots as a finishing touch.
