Wow...2 in a row! Amazing huh?? Last night I finally got a chance to finish up the card I started Monday night for the second challenge for the SIYJ party that night. I was really inspired by Charlie's card here that she made for her daughter. I remember how much Julia loves spinner cards, and thought it would be fun to make one with our cute little Ice Skating Sophia - January's Stamp of the Month! (To get her before everyone else, be sure to sign up for the Stamp of the Month Club before the end of December...otherwise you have to wait until February 1st to order this little cutie!!)
I started by stamping Sohpia on some watercolor paper and coloring her in with reinkers and an aquapainter before cutting her out. I then added some stickles to her cape, used my sakura clear glitter pen on her skates, and some liquid applique for her muffs. I then put her aside to dry.
Next, I assembled the card itself. I used some designer paper from the SU! Holiday Happenings hostess bundle for the background. I adhered it to a slightly smaller piece of cardstock to give it some more strength. Then, I punched 2 holes with the Word Window punch, one from the top and one from the bottom. Next, I connected them using the punched out pieces as a guide for my craft knife...this made a little Z for Sophia to skate along. Before adhering my pennies on either side of the snowflake piece with a dimensional I stamped the greeting, then added lots of dimensionals to the back to stick it to my Pink Pirouette base. Finally I Stock Sophia on the top penny with one more dimensional, and moved her along!
I had forgotten how much I like making penny cards. Julia's 3rd birthday invitations were penny cards, and she loved them...so I know she'll love this one! Later this week I'll show you the card SHE made with this set on Monday night during the party...it's another beautiful Julia Original!
Oh...and if you haven't checked out our new Paper Pretties blog, written by none other than the Amazing Jodi Collins, be sure you do! On Tuesdays she does a great article highlighting some of the products from the boutique, and this week you can get Angel Wings Sophia on sale!
