My cousin's sweet little daughter, Elizabeth just recently celebrated her 3rd birthday. She is such a prissy, sassy, and feisty little girl. She is the epitome of all things girlie. When I sat down to create her birthday card, I knew I wanted to do something extra special. (Her mother is a scrapbooking diva extraordinaire, so it is really hard to top her beautiful creations!)
Here are the details....
The photo I used was one I took of Ms. Elizabeth on Easter a year ago, just prior to her 2nd birthday. To give the image a vintage feel, I first printed it out in color. Then, I printed directly over the image in grey scale. It muted everything a bit, while still maintaining the "sugar" pink of her tulle dress. Next, I cut out Elizabeth and mounted her on a new photo that was printed in grey scale only. The frame I love. I found it at Target around Valentine's Day. The pink damask pattern is great. As far as the pennants go, I created them using different papers from my stash. I don't know all the brands, but basically some of the pennants were created from scrapbook paper, from flocked specialty paper, & Martha Stewart gift wrap. I used CTMH rub-ons for the HAPPY ELIZABETH. The BIRTHDAY is from Stampin' Up. I created a crown for Lizzie using a stamp from Autumn Leaves, Talking In Circles. To give it some extra pizazz, I used silver embossing powder and cut it out. In addition to these goodies, I used red/white twine by Raffit for the pennant string. Also, at the bottom of the frame, I used a CTMH stamp from the Just For Girls set. I then heat embossed it with black Staz-on and shimmery clear powder. I hope you enjoy, and thanks for looking.
