Happy Birthday, Amelia!


Our granddaughter's birthday is at the end of the month. This is the card I made for her.

I had cut a background piece with my Cameo Silhouette and I decided to use it as a stencil. I sponged pink ink through it. I matted that with pink, also. I used two small Cuttlebug folders to emboss the crown and the "Princess." I matted that piece with pink, also, and mounted on Dimensionals. The letters are pearls - they came as letters. I actually bought them with the intention of cutting them apart, but I just came across them and thought they would be great for Amelia's card. I added the ribbon - which is a bow that I tied attached to a ribbon across the front. I used a piece of thread to tie around the ribbon before I attached the bow.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

This is so pretty, Lynette - absolutely fit for a little princess in pink! Love the step-by-step too. It's a delight.

Thank you for your kind words - we just have to contain ourselves in patience and wait for a new date. Not knowing the date is the worst because of not being able to make practical arrangements before I go in, but hopefully we'll hear something by the end of the week. It just can't be helped. I feel a lot better about it now than I did.

Oh, your background is great! The princess embossing is super sweet and the pearl letters are such a pretty way to personalize it. This will have to be a keepsake!

Love the background and Amelia's name - I guess your Cameo is working again??

This definitely could be framed and hung on the wall!
