Pretty Birthday Girl Card

Here's some pretty birthday girl cards. I used the Stamping' Up! retired stamp set: Hey Girl. This is the perfect stamp set for my consignment shop cards. And I love that I can customize the girl's skin, eye, and hair color if anyone asks.

I colored in her skin with a copic skin color marker and used SU water based inks for th rest of the image. I used the traditional method of squeezing the ink cartridge and using the residue on the top inside area with my water brush, which is very easy to get gradient color. Popped a rhinestone on her hair bow and finished!

Handmade Papercrafts by Laura Cardmaking Tip

When it comes to embellishing a card, make sure that the buttons, brads and flowers are not too thick. Otherwise the Post Office will charge you more postage based on weight AND your envelope and card may be ripped in the mail. Trust me, I have made this mistake!
