Just for you - girl in silhouette shaped pink card - Day 84 of my 366 day challenge


Just for you - girl in silhouette shaped pink card - 
Day 84 of my 366 day challenge

Hi Craft addicts!

So for today's blog, I have again used the toppers and cards from the "Shadows and Silhouettes" card making kit from Kanban.

Just for you - girl in silhouette shaped pink card
I first of all decided to use one of the pink shaped cards provided in the kit which is approximately 7.5" x 5.5" and one of the larger "girl" toppers. I also used one of the embossed/patterned backing papers provided in the kit too and after gluing it to the topper cut round it following the shape.

I then glued 3 flowers (2 paper and 1 resin) to the right hand side of the card and a strip of pink ribbon (with a pink button) to the left using my hot glue gun. I also used some "Bling Flourishes" from the Magnolia Lane collection from Ultimate Crafts to add a bit of sparkle to the card.

I wanted to try out the new Clear Nuvo Crystal drops (from Tonic Studios) as I had seen that they dried clear. I added some to the card and allowed them to dry overnight.

I had at first, thought it was going to be ok left with no message but decided to add one - this reads  "Just for you" and I have coloured it with a pink alcohol marker and stuck it to a black layer and shaped it to the shape of the sentiment. I also added some more clear drops to each side of the sentiment to look like brads.

This card isn't my normal style but it came out better than I thought it would....and you can buy this card on my website here and...
