There's another challenge going on over at the "Magical Monday" challenge blog HERE. The challenge is to make a project with some die cuts in it. Nina May is our digital artist for these challenges. You can see her work here at the Paper Cupcakes store. She has lots of cute images to choose from. You will want to add some of her images to your collection. They are perfect for all kinds of celebration projects you may need to create. The image I used for this project is called "Tea Party Princess". She reminds me of my grandaughters. They are so "Girly Girl" sometimes...... and it's really cute when they are. This is an easel card with a little twist. Below is how the card looks in the "easel" position.
I wanted the image to extend above the main card; therefore, I changed some of the measurements so the the card would still fit into a square envelope.
The image is colored with colored pencil and copics and glitter gel pens. I doodled a little in the two corners of the image. The flowers are the die cuts that I used here. They are Sizzlets from Sizzix. Then I shaped them and added stickles to the daisys and a green paper center with glitter to the other flowers. The leaves are done with a MS punch and put through the crimper. The DP is S.U. prints pack. The CS is S.U. "Certainly Celery". The ribbon is from Paper Trey. Gems and white paper is from my stash.
Here is the card when it's fully closed. The borders were created with a Martha Stewart punch. And below is the card when it's opened up. The sentiment is from Stampin Up. I also doodled around 2 of the corners on the sentiment panel.
