A few week's ago my boys and I attended a dear friend's birthday party for her adorable Evangeline. Turning 5 going on 20, she is one smart little cookie and such a beautiful child inside and out. :)
For her birthday, her mother planned an elaborate party in the "Vintage Circus Room" of Pinkitzel in Oklahoma City. It has to be the fanciest cupcake destination on earth! They have rooms decked out in such beautifully decadent decor, it almost takes your breath away. (If you ever come to OKC, it should definitely be on your destination list.) Check out the photo gallery of this place, if you get a chance.... and be prepared to drool!
For Evangeline's card, I wanted it to serve as an embellishment for a big "E" I painted to garnish the top of her kraft wrapped packages. My mom had recently purchased me the Cricut Lite Carousel Cartridge, so I figured it was time to bust out the Cricut and put it to some much needed use. The images on this cartridge are so fun, I found myself cutting out all kinds of circus imagery. I finally decided to use the ferris wheel in the background and the elephant in the foreground to accentuate the "E." Coupling the images with My Mind's Eye's Kraft Funday/Happy Days/Everyday Collections and some twine, I think everything tied together perfectly.
Supplies I used are...MME Kraft Funday Happy Day Layered Stickers, Die-Cut Borders & Icing Paper, MME Kraft Funday Everyday Fun Wood Banners (I love these!), Luxe Cocktail Dress Mojito Paper, Colorbok Wine Cardstock, Maraschino Twine from the Twinery, kraft paper, red/yellow tickets and certainly not least the Carousel Cartridge. As for the "E", I recently scored appx 350 letters and numbers at a sale...they are vintage marquee letters ranging in size from 8-10" tall. Pretty cool, huh?
I hope this card/gift presentation has inspired you to create this weekend! Check back soon as I will be having a giveaway in celebration of my 100th post!
