I had planned to make an elaborate !st Birthday card but as usual time moved on but I didn't. I knew I wandted to make a girly girl card and so I purchased one of the Sister Stamps (available now at Ben Franklin Crafts) because I thought it would give the card a local look. The day before I started this card, Cheryl (Life is Sweet - http://pinkydots.blogspot.com/) sent me a 'magic' card. (She will be doing a demo of this type of card at the Pearl City BFC paper party next month.) I've always been intrigued with the mechanics of 'magic color' cards, so I inspected Cheryl's card. It took me awhile, but I figured it out without (LOL) taking Cheryl's card apart. Since I was already late with the card, I kept it simple by just attaching the sliding envelope to a printed cardstock (Best Creation Inc.) card. Copic markers (sold at Ben Franklin Crafts) were used to color the image. The addition of a ribbon, rose, and Martha Stewart cardstock Birthday banner completed the card. For a first time and without instructions, I am fairly pleased with the results. Oh, one thing I would do to improve the card would be to use a stiffer acetate piece so it would be easier to slide the image in and out. Well, that's it for today. Happy Birthday Nykki !
