- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- I’m adding a few other cards I did with this same pattern.
