Hey there! Yesterday was my soon to be daughter-in-law's (or our new daughter as we prefer to say) birthday! I was lucky enough to get to spend a couple of days with her this past weekend, as she brought her wedding party and close female family up to our house to enjoy a weekend "bachelorette party"! What a blast that was! That may be a story for another day, though if some layouts get created about the fun times we had! Today I would like to share the birthday card that I created for her.
Christina loves pink and I opted to dig into my Simple Stories DIY Boutique 6x6 paper pad to create this card, because it features two fabulous shades of pink.
I have been on a bit of a shaker pocket kick lately, so I created a simple rectangular one for this card by die cutting a stitched rectangle with my YNS dies and sandwiching pretty SpiegelMom Scraps sequins between acetate and a second, albeit simple, patterned paper with the help of some foam tape.
I stamped my sentiment onto the acetate with Stazon ink. I bought this stamp set way back when I began papercrafting and while they are a fun stamp, they are pink rubber - thus not see through - and I always struggled to use them since I am not the best stamper. Thanks to my Mini Misti, I love this stamp all over again!
After assembling the card, I began embellishing with stickers, chipboard and ephemera from two different Simple Stories collections. I have to say, I love the way this card turned out!
