I ask you, is there anything more sweet than a first birthday? I'm sure there are many things, but a first birthday is pretty sweet. So much possibility ahead, right? Well we have some close friends and their daughter is turning one next week and I had an idea hit me me for a card, in traffic again, and whipped this card up over the weekend.
The oval and the #1 I cut out with my Plantain Schoolbook cartridge. I actually cut out two ovals. One at 4 3/4 and one at 4 1/4. The bigger oval I stuck scor tape all around the back of and that's how I adhered the tulle. Then I trimmed the excess tulle off. The second oval, I went crazy with the adhesive and stuck it to the back of the first oval, to help hold the tulle on.
I used pop dots to pop the oval up and then added a lot of Martha Stewart glitter to the #1. I think this is the perfect card for a sweet one year old girl! And I'm totally going to do this "tulle around the shape" thing again! Can't you see tulle around circles? Black tulle? Awesome.
We have parent teacher conferences tonight so no grocery store like normal :) Do you have anything exciting planned for your Thursday? I'm working on a little organizational project that I am hoping to share tomorrow. I've been feeling very lucky and grateful lately. Lots of negativity out there, especially at my work, and it really makes me grateful for Mike and the girls and the life we have together. I'm so glad I'm able to come here to my blog and share my little cards and talk to you each day, it feels good when there is so much ick out there :) Thanks for stopping by today and I'll see you tomorrow. Have a fantastic and beautiful day!
