Happy Birthday Lexi :)

Today is my friends daughter's 4th birthday! I made this quick little card this morning before the party and the idea came completely from Amanda at Amanda's Crafts and More. I would love to take credit for it but I can't, I'm just not as creative as her. ;P Visit her blog to see other great projects by her. Here's what I scraplifted. :)

All cuts are from the Create a critter cartridge, can you tell that's my favorite one?? :)

I embossed the pink layer with swiss dots and used a peachy keen face and a little rhinestone for her bow, then finally added white gel pen dots and popped her up.

I inked each one with alternating colors and embossed them with the paisley folder and wrapped matching twine from the twinery for their strings and stamped each one with a different PK face.

For the title I used a stamp from my stash and embossed with recollections embossing powder.. I'm not sure if I like the little white flecks in it, plus as you can see my powder wasn't perfect before I hit it with the heat gun, but I'm still happy overall. You learn from your mistakes. :)

Side view to see the dimensionality of all the cuts.

For the inside I used some cloud paper that was left over and some white paper and inked it with pink so it all matches. :) The whole party was stunned that I handmade this card. :) That's why I do this, for everyone's reactions :)

Thank you for visiting! :)
