Today I decided to break out my Hello Kitty Greetings cart and make something. I'm not really a card maker, in fact, cards scare me. I LOVE to make little 3x3 or 4x4 cards cause they are so cute and small but normal size cards just intimidate me. I guess because I see so many BEAUTIFUL cards out there and to be honest, my love is still scrapbooking so I never really try to "improve" my card making skills.
So today, with my daughter right by my side, I decided to make a shape card. Now, this is a little different than your typical shaped card, this one is welded like a word book but only to make a card so the inside is a little smaller. Eh, just something different. I'll probably send this card to my Hello Kitty loving friend who is having a baby girl in October :)
I used stickles to "bling" her up a bit and I also "faux" stitched around her to make her stand out a little.
Hello Kitty is 6.5" tall and she was welded to a 9" rectangle (roughly, I'm sorry I forgot to write measurements!) but given enough room to where I could score the card at 4.5". This should have been an A6 card but came out slighly bigger :) I was really contemplating selling my HK Greetings cart (especially with the insane prices that they are going for on Ebay!) but I think I might keep her a while longer :) I can clip art to my heart's content on my Silhouette but there is nothing like paper piecing!
On that note.... my son Jacob was super bored today (they go back to school in 3 weeks) so he decided he wanted to cut out different lego pictures and make a cute little art project. I captured a picture of him at my scrap table which is a huge deal since he doesn't believe crafting is for boys! :)
