…your birthday. Okay, so I didn’t really forget a birthday, but I thought I’d follow up last week’s grumpy little girl with another grumpy, yet equally adorable girl. I turned Bossy into a belated birthday card by adding a Norsk Stempelblad AS sentiment. I guess I need to start forgetting birthdays, huh?
I colored my image years ago, so I have no idea which Copics I used. I added more contrast to the image at some point last year, but that doesn’t mean I remember any more. My memory’s pretty good, but not THAT good!
I rummaged through my blue scraps of patterned paper for this card. The dark blue one is from the Muligheter collection by Papirdesign, and the paler blue is from the Denim & Friends collection by Maja Design.
I chose stitched STAX sets from My Favorite Things (Stitched Rectangles STAX Set 2 and Stitched Circle STAX) to diecut all the panels on my card except for the blue circle I used as a mat for my sentiment, I used a Spellbinders die for that, it was the only “oddly” sized circle die I found in my stash, and it fit perfectly around my other circle with a 1/16″ border, which I happen to think is the perfect border size!
I glued my matted sentiment circle to the card using foam tape, and decided to add a few dark blue Papirdesign enamel dots to add more circular elements.For once I decided to put something on the back. I don’t usually do that on my simple cards, but I really wanted to use that pale blue diecut strip I’d made, and I really love that Norsk Stempelblad AS sentiment (What? Aren’t you older?) that I stamped in Papertrey Ink Enchanted Evening ink.
