Sweet 16 Birthday Card

20110227_9 My daughter turns 16 today and this is the card I made for her.  I decided I wanted to do something a little different for her card. I started with a piece of 4” X 12” hot pink card stock that I scored and folded at 4” and 8”. I used some aqua card stock to cut mats for each section of may card at 3 7/8” X 3 7/8”. I then used the stock square image on my Imagine and cut 5 squares at 4” that were flooded with different patterns from the Yummy cartridge and cut them down to 3 3/4” X 3 3/4”.  For the front I used a cupcake pattern from my Yummy cartridge. I also used a stock scalloped circle image included with the Imagine and flooded it with a light small polka dot pattern and print and cut it at 3 1/2”. I ran the scallop circle through the cuttlebug and embossed it with my swiss dots folder. I then sprayed the circle with some of my Honey Dew Glimmer Mist. I cut the cupcake using the layers feature at 3” and attached it to the scalloped circle with an Action Wobble.
20110227_14 For the inside I used the Happy Birthday patterned paper for each of the three panels. For the left hand panel I used one of the presents on the Yummy cartridge cut at 3”. I also used my new stickles. I used the Glam Pink to bling up the flourish on the package and some Lime Green that I had to bling up the dots on the ribbon. For the right hand panel I used the word Sweet cut at 1 1/2” from the Yummy cartridge and then used my Nursery Rhyme Cartridge to cut the 16  at 1 1/2”. I flooded the shadow of  numbers with a dark turquoise blue and the main layer with a pink from the Yummy cartridge. I used some Yellow stickles to bling up the S in sweet and the new Tropical Turquoise for the weet. I used the Glam Pink for the 16.
20110227_12 The image on the back of the Sweet 16 panel is of a  Party hat also from the Yummy Cartridge. I again used the Scallop stock image that I flooded with one of the pattern’s from the cartridge and cut it at 3 1/2”. I cut the party hat at 3”. I also used some Glam Pink stickles to bling up the pompom balls and the top of the party hat.  I really hope she likes the card.
