I work at a really awesome place, with some really awesome people. Our boss/director is one of those awesome people. She was a friend before she became my boss.
She recently had a birthday, us teachers always go in with some money for a gift card (she likes to shop and always looks fabulous), a sweet treat and a card.
So this was the card that I made:
This is the stamp Super Mom by Kenny K for Whimsy Stamps. She is rockin'! I adore this image. She personifies power. I wonder what Kenny's inspiration was when he drew this image.
I don't usually make big cards. I like to stick with the A2 size. This one was going to be signed by quite a few people so I needed to make it bigger. I know some people usually make the 6x6 cards, but in the effort of paper conservation, and because I didn't have a 12 x 12 size cardstock of the base color - this card is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2.
I stamped her onto watercolor paper and colored her with Twinkling H2Os.
Other card details:
Base: SU Riding Hood Red
DP: Those beautiful Fall colored DP is from SU called Polka Dot Parade. It makes it look like it's from a comic book.
Other Stamps: "You're Fantastic - TGF Amazing Duo (which I bought from Stamp and Create); Inside Sentiment - PTI:Inside and Out Birthday
The star burst is cut with the Silhouette.
Twine: The Twinery Maraschino
Jewels: Queen & Co.
The above and below pic show where I paper pieced the apron.
The inside I had to leave pretty blank because of all the people that still had to sign..
