Birthday Card for 11-Year Old
Today I have a card that I made for an 11-year old girl birthday this week. I am sew outta the loop as to type of card, let along sentiment to put inside . . . Sew, I pulled out my trusty Cricut Rock Princess and made my card from there. Must confess that I started with the "hint" or suggestion in the front of the book but didn't think a skull with a bow on its head was appropriate - call me old or a fuddy duddy but . . .
ü Black cardstock cut at 6 x 6-inches
ü Pink paper cut at 5 x 5 – inches
ü Black paper cut at 4 x 4 –inches
ü Pink paper cut at 3 x 3 –inches
ü 3 ribbons from my stash with pink and black to coordinate
ü High-top tennis shoe cut at 2.75-inches with grey as shadow, white as next layer, black as next layer and pink for the checkered part - sounds confusing but it all worked!!!!
ü I had started to emboss with my Cuttlebug, but with all the layers, it only got embossed on the outer edge
The jury is still out for the sentiment on the inside but hoping for the best. My buddy, Michelle Ferris suggested "Put your high-tops on and jog into your teens" which is a great sentiment. Hope you enjoyed my card for today and I’m sew glad you stopped by!!!! Please leave a remark along with what you think would be a great sentiment!!!!!
God Bless you and thank you for following along with me!
Hugs, Love, and Pixie Dust
