I made this card using my gypsy, Smiley Cards, George and Basic Shapes and Forever Young carts. I started with the HA-P B-DAY phrase from Smiley Cards. I welded a rectangle from George to the phrase and this became the card base. I cut the base out of white cardstock. Then I cut the phrase again at the same size as the 1st but in light pink and with out the rectangle attached. I cut the girl from Forever Young. She is actually holding a purse and I think has a flower at her waist but I chose to hide those on my gypsy and not cut them out. Sometime at this small size it can be difficult to get a nice, clean cut. Also my cutting mat is on it's last leg. I have a couple on order that I hope to have by the end of the week :)
Now to put it all together. I layered the light pink phrase right over the white. I dressed my girl in her little green dress and added stickles to her pink trim and a rhinestone to hair for a touch of sparkle
White cardstock - Georgia Pacific
Light Pink, Dark Pink and Brown cardstock - DCWV
Green cardstock is shimmery but I'm not sure who makes it. It came in a paper stack that I loved so much, I only have scraps left.
Pink cardstock (dress trim) - LYB
If anyone is interested in the .gypsy file, leave me a comment and I can send it to you.
This was really a challenge for me. Usually the only time I would use Pink and Green together is with flowers and leaves. I am proud of how this turned out! I would love to hear what you think too.
