I love correspondence.  When I was young, my mum and I would sit on the porch toge64 hellother and write cards.  According to my mum, it is bad form not to send ‘thank you’ cards and reprehensible to not correspond in general.  I made this card to participate in a challenge hosted by Neat and Tangled because I like creating cards.  But I needed this card because I’m quite delinquent in saying ‘hello’ to my grandmum.  (Reprehensible indeed.)  😉

To make this card I used my MISTI to stamp ‘Bonjour’ and then began stamping the flowers into a wreath.  The image of the little girl is actually longer and she has an eiffel tower on her head.  I masked portions of her off before stamping her in Memento ink onto the A2 panel.  IMG_1031

With all the stamping complete I pulled out my copic markers!  I used E70, E74 and E79 on her hair and E0000, E000 and E50 on her skin.  Her dress is a mix of BG10, BG13 and YG23.  For the flowers I used  a combination of Y000, YG21, YG03, YG17, RV13 and RV21.  Finally, I placed removable masking tape across the card panel horizontally to create the stripes “behind” the focal point – I colored these stripes in using G20.


To complete this card I cut down my card panel along the top and bottom to allow some of the white card stock beneath show through.  Using some irRESISTible pico embellisher and white gel pen, I filled in the centers of several of the flowers.  Finally, I adhered my  panel to a card, added some glossy accents to the heart on her dress, and was done!

I hope you enjoyed my card!
