Happy New Year!
It's hard to believe that my great granddaughter,
Lahna, will be one in a few days.
Here's the birthday card I'm sending her:
The papers are from a new paper pack from The Paper Boutique called Wild and Wonderful.
The animals in the pack are adorable.
I found a diagram of a card base in the shape of a number '1', which I followed. Before cutting the indented area on the right, I die cut the word 'one' along the edge. I traced the card base shape onto patterned paper and then cut within the line 1/8" all around. I stamped a small banner across the upper corner before it was embossed and then attached to the base. The koala was a circular embellishment that came with the paper. I fussy cut and then popped it onto the base. The die cut 'Happy Birthday' was added next. The flowers around the koala received a bit of shine with a Wink of Stella brush. And finally, I added liquid glass to the koala's nose and eyes, the dot over the 'i' in Birthday, and the center of three of the flowers.
Here's a recent picture of my little cutie.
