Hi! My name is Alishia and I am a KraftaholicMommy!
It has certainly been awhile since I typed those lovely words! How has everyone been?!?! I have been working away on several projects that couldn’t be shared until they were given. Now, I am still working on my lovely mom’s birthday party, it is now just under a week away and I am so excited!
With that being said, as I am writing this another amazing person in my life is celebrating a birthday today, my niece! It is so hard to believe that she is already ten years old. I remember getting the call on this day ten years ago that my beautiful sister-in-law had gone into labor. The rush of excitement as I drove to the hospital was out of this world. The wait seemed like forever, but by the end of the day, I was holding and giving my heart to a beautiful baby girl. She has certainly changed our lives and made them far better. Since the day she was born, we knew that she was a special girl. Sassy with a big beautiful heart and not afraid to show the boys that a girl can get in the dirt too. She has grown to be such a smart and kind girl. Baby girl if you are reading this, Aunt Alishia loves you more than words could ever describe!
Now, for my niece, I had made quite a few ideas and then changed just about every one of them, except the card. The card is sassy with a whole lot of fun. I started by taking a piece of hot pink card stock and cut it at 8.5 inches by 5.5 inches, and scored and folded at the 4.25 inch mark. I then took a nice light pink color and cut that at 5.25 inches by 4 inches. I did that piece twice. I turned those pieces into my own designer paper and a piece was placed on the front of the card and the second piece was placed inside the card. For the two small rectangles that are kind put at angles on the front, I used black and hot pink. Both are cut at 4.25 inches by 3 inches.
The ribbon at the top was tied into a square knot and then placed on the card using a glue dot. The other piece of ribbon was simply shaped to make a “V” and then using a glue dot, I placed it on the back of the black scalloped circle. I layered on top a light pink circle with the stamped happy birthday sentiment.
On the inside of the card, I layered my designer paper with a piece of light pink paper so I could write my message and stamp a pretty flower to tie the front to the inside. Once I was finished, I stuck ten dollars in the card and called it a day. The look on my nieces face when her mom told her that I had made the card was priceless. I absolutely loved making this card and I really loved watching her open this card. It brings me such joy to do these things for my loved ones.
The inspiration for this card came from a wonderful woman that I have mentioned on here before, Mrs. Angie Juda of ChicNScratch. She has a YouTube channel as well as a website. You should definitely check her out! I absolutely love the amazing work that she does!!
This card was so much fun to make. I got the paper, stamps, and ribbon from JoAnn Fabrics. I got the ink from Stampin’ Up. I got the adhesive from WalMart.
