World Card Making Day

Happy World Card Making Day...like many of you I just love making cards!  It's so great to put a smile on someone's face!  I get such joy out of creating cards!

It wouldn't be right without making a card today, so here it is!:


Isn't it cute?  I got the "Create a Critter" cart last month and hadn't used it yet, so that was one of my goals!  My little girl's friend is going to be turning one soon, so I thought I'd get ahead of myself and create a card for her birthday already!  After creating it, I think I'm going to have to make one for my little girl as well!

I cut the flowers out and painted them with "Tickled Pink" Creative Inspirations Paints to add some beautiful shimmer!  I then used VersaMagic Chalk Ink "Pink Petunia" around the endges of the flowers and lightly crimped them.  And lastly added some bling to the middle using my i-rock! (I love that tool!!) I used pop-dots to add some dimension to the flowers and really like how they ended up turning out!

I added CI Paints "Onyx" to the black cardstock after I cut the zebra's body out. I used my Candy Cane Stripe Cuttlebug folder to emboss the white cardstock of the zebra. Again I used pop-dots to have the zebra raised.

 And lastly I added CI Paints "Tickled Pink" the the shadow on Fab!

These paints really add such a great touch to any card.  They add such a great complete touch!

HAPPY CARD MAKING DAY!
