You're So Special

Hi everyone!  This is a clean and simple card I created for my friends twin girls birthday.  The cute patterned paper was a holiday gift from my niece.  The image used on today's card is the Ballerina rubber stamp by Penny Black.

My card base is Close Cocoa layered with White Cardstock then strips of Nellie's Garden patterned paper. The image was printed on White Cardstock then layered on a Close to Cocoa tag finished with DMC White. The sentiment was printed on White Cardstock and die cut using the File Tab die. To embellish the card I added tons of stitching and a small copper brad in each corner.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!

  • Stamps: Ballerina (Penny Black), You're So Special (Hero Arts)

  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Copics E00, E25, E27, RV32, RV34
