Something for a little girl...

One of my daughters-in-law, for whom I make cards as part of her Christmas gift, asked me to include more cards for kids. I haven't gotten around to doing too many so far this year, and now I'm going to have to do a little scrambling. I want to make enough for those families of mine who have little ones who still go to birthday parties. I made one today to get that ball rolling.

If you're like me, you not only have some kind of electronic cutting device, but you also have a 'manual' one. I love my Big Shot. And while I'd like to have almost everything put away in my craft room, I love having my Big Shot out where I can just plain use it. Some of my favorite dies are from My Favorite Things. Quality and variety (you should see my wish list...). And their stamps - more of my favies.

Today I used the sketch from MFT's Wednesday Stamp Club Sketch Challenge. When I happened to look at it, I knew right away which stamp I wanted to use as my focal point. And hey Darnell, it's a NBUS!!  Here's the sketch:

And my card:


In my world, it works really well for a little lady. All the stamps are from MFT, and there's even a bit on the flower; x's & o's. SU black ink, and all the papers are various scraps! (except for the Bazzill base, of course). A bit of copic marker on the nose, and under the glitters, and the cupcake paper was highlighted with an SU light green marker. One pink pearl from ZVa Creative. I cut the scalloped border with my Cameo, and embossed it with a LC folder. The darker pink part of the flower was cut with a Sizzix die, and the lighter pink has been punched with an ollllldddd punch. That's it. Happy dances everyone!

Sweet! Love that it's not too girly-girl but still pretty and fun!

Oh my...what a sweet little bunny! I love her and that giant cupcake, yummy with all those sprinkles, so sweet for a little girl!

That's such a good idea to give cards to family as gifts. Only problem is - my daughter thought they were so nice she hated to send them. lol I told here there would always be more. Your bunny card is just perfect for a child - or child at heart.

This is just darling. Any little girl would be happy to receive it. And, that cupcake looks so yummy with all that shimmer. Cute sentiment, too.

Not only is this card absolutely awesome because it is CA-UTE as ever...but you utilized a whole bunch of your tools & supplies to create it! Great attention to details - the pink nose, the glittered icing, the sweet pink/white and green strips that border the scalloped edge, awesome flower & banner embellishment too. Yep, some young lady is going to go ga-ga over this card!

In my world, too, this is perfect for a little girl! Cutie-patootie bunny, and your special touches are perfect! My sister-in-law has asked me to make more kids' cards, too (and baby ones), which means we're on a similar journey. More shopping to come!! Have a fabulous, delightful Monday!
