Hello Beautiful

Hello crafty peeps!

We all need a card just to simply let someone know they are beautiful just the way they are!

I am back today to share a slimline card I created for my second project as guest designer for The Greeting Farm. This gorgeous image is called ‘Dressy Ebony‘. She worked out perfectly on a slimline card by adding a sentiment to the bottom of the card.

I printed this little sweetheart on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with the following markers.

~Copics~
Skin: E13, E11, E21, E00, E000, E0000, R20, R30, R00
Hair: E55, E53, E51
Dress, Shoes, Headband: RV99, RV95, RV93, RV91, RV000
Flower: RV95, RV93, RV91, RV000, YR24, Y15, Y11
Jacket: YG97, YG95, YG93, YG91, W0

The beautiful flowers I used on my card are from I Am Roses.
R2-839 – Mini Mixed All Green and WHITE Paper Flowers
LY3-188 – Pale Lilac Mini Lily Crafts Paper Flowers
S10-15 – White Small Craft Paper Flowers
T1-15 – White Mini Artificial Paper Crafts Rosebuds
R2-15 – Mini White Paper Flowers
R4-15 – White Artificial Small Arabian Jasmine Craft Flowers  
S10-921 – White with Soft Pink Center 2 Tone Small Flowers

I planned the card layout before I started coloring to be sure I was printing the image at the correct size.  I wanted to be sure Ebony fit inside the scalloped oval die cut, and that there would be room for the flowers.  Once all my coloring was complete, I fussy cut her out and glued her directly to the oval.  The flowers were added last.

There is so much cuteness to be found at The Greeting Farm…how does one choose…lol!

Until next time…crafty hugs!!
