Happy Birthday, Chrisi!!!

It's my second daughter's 22nd birthday today! Yay!!! I made a card to send her the other day. Here are some shots of it along with the matching bookmark and envelope. Sorry I didn't get back to the computer to post them yesterday.... got caught up with other stuff!







I was able to borrow Kat's scrapbooking markers (thanks, Kat!), so now we've got some fun, vibrant colors goin' on. Woohoo!! Anyway, this stamp set is soooooo Chrisi!! I had bought it originally because it seemed to match my girls so well... and I was right!Chrisi changes her hairstyle quite often, so both the long hair and the short worked for this card. I used the slit punch on the bottom right corner of the yellow layer and added a button for some interest.




I took scraps of the yellow cardstock to paper piece onto the two purses so they would have some fun texture. I also grabbed some textured red cardstock for the gift she's holding.








I popped the cell phone onto a dimensional to give that some "oomph" as well.











The circles containing the purse and cake are on dimensionals. Since I don't have a bigger circle punch (long story) to layer the 1" circles, I just used a dauber to sponge some color on them instead.







Here's a side view so you can see how the bookmark is "attached" to the inside of the card. It's one of those over-the-page magnetic bookmarks. The image I used for the front of it is the same long-haired girl with the cell phone; just no dimensionals so it won't get wrecked in the book. You can see the front of the bookmark up in the next photo. I also made one with black hair for Kat. That photo will be up later...







Oh yes, and I did remember to stamp a little flower inside the card to carry the theme through.











Gotta head out now. Kat's got an internship task today! I really hope Chrisi likes her card. :)
