Directions:

  1. I’ve had this stamp for about 7 years and I always have so much fun with it.  Today I thought she looked too plain so I added a second layer to her dress and her head.
  2. I began by stamping the lady and embossing.  I then trimmed the paper to the desired size (5.25” x 2.5”) and printed happy birthday on the right side of the lady.  I colored in with the paint shown above.  I punched the corners and mounted on grey and then yellow at .25” increments.
  3. I stamped another lady and cut out her gown and head.  Her gown was trimmed with part of the bottom shorter than the full dress.
  4. Her dress was colored with both yellow pens and the smooch was added for more detail.  I used the C3 grey for accent for her hair.  Her necklace was accented with the gold glitter pen.  I mounted the lady on the lattice, grey and black paper(4.25” x 5.5”) onto the card base.  I punched the lattice and cut off the right side and mounted on card.
  5. To add interest to the trim, I took 3 flowers, added three seed beads to the centers of the flower and glued.  The final step was adding the flowers and the gold leaves to the side lattice.
  6. I’m adding a few other cards I did with this same pattern.




    When you make a card be sure to sign the back so the recipient knows the love and attention you showed to them!
