About You Pocket Card

I created this special birthday card for a sweet little lady about to turn seven years old. The papers are quite an unlikely match, but blended perfectly. The base and the top mat are from Tim Holtz 12"x12" Wildflower paper stash by Idea-ology. (By the way... have you seen their new one coming soon called Dapper? Take a peek here. I love this and have already preordered. I think it will be a winner for cards.)

I still have some of the My Mind's Eye Lost & Found collection from a few years back called Heirloom, and pulled it out thinking it just might coordinate with this Wallflower pattern. What a happy surprise when it did. I fussy cut my little girl from one of the ephemera pieces in the Record It pack. The "7", the dotted banner, and "About You" were in that pack as well.

The lace is a vintage one from my stash. The main bloom is a Petaloo Botanica and the tiny rosebuds are from I Am Roses. I cut the Birthday Wishes tag with Alterations Tiny Tabs & Tags and added some May Arts pink burlap string.

I cut the fern using an Alterations Holiday Greens Thinlits die. I went with a piece of a manilla file folder and colored it with Bundled Sage and Peeled Paint Distress ink. When the inks were still wet, I poured on utee and hit it with my Ranger heat tool (this is that replacement one Ranger sent me. It's working like a dream.)

I fussy cut this heart from the 6"x6" Heirloom paper pad, sponged on Worn Lipstick Distress ink, added the "7" ephemera piece with some 3-D foam adhesive. They went on top of the dotted banner as did a Queen & Co half pearl and a TPC Studio rhinestone.

The tag is decorated with a wide pink eyelet from We R Memory Keepers, a couple of pearl baubles and a jump ring by Idea-ology, along with a wrinkled seam binding double bow.

I hope you had a great weekend and are starting your Monday with a smile!

Thanks for stopping by!

I'd say this is perfectly designed for a sweet 7 year old. I have a 6 x 6 pad of that Heirloom paper that I've never cut into. Gasp! I can't seem to make myself. LOL Hope all is well with you my friend. Hugs!
