Tomorrow my oldest granddaughter will be eighteen years old. It is hard to imagine it has been that long since our beautiful blue eyed baby girl was born. But, I did just attend her high school graduation last month and she will be off to college very soon.
Purple is her favorite color, so I incorporated it into the making of this 6 X 6 birthday card. DCWV Flower Shower Spring Stack 2010 was used for the 6 X 6 base and the 5.5 X 5.5 mat. The corners were decorated using the WRMK Corner Chromper Cloud punch.
It has been awhile since I have used the Cricut Imagine. I used it along with the Lori’s Garden cartridge. That is my favorite Imagine cartridge. The butterfly layers (page 11) are print/cut at 1.3 inches and the toadstools layers (page 12) are print/cut at 3.0 inches.
The butterfly is embellished with Black Diamonds (antennae) and Platinum (back wing) Stickles. Recollections Rhinestones were used on the body.
The birthday sentiment is a Sylvia Yu stamp using TH Distress Dusty Concord ink. I then heat embossed it using clear embossing powder and the Ranger Heat It tool. I cut it using a Fiskars scallop punch. The edges are inked with TH Distress Dusty Concord ink. It is adhered to the card using the Recollections Foam Squares.
