Little Dot's Birthday

This is my most detailed card to date but I love how it looks.  It is also the 1st card that I have done where I have done the inside aswell.  This card I have made for my mum and dad to give to my little girl for her 1st birthday at the end of the month.  When I saw her, I just had to have her as my mum calls the girls Little Dot to do with our surname,  so this was the only card that really suited them for her.Anyway, here she is

The red spotty paper that I used for the main backing was from My Minds Eye, the spots collection. The red paper is from the Paper Mill Shop  and I thought that it tied in really well with the red spotty paper and also added contrast to it.  As I said before, the image is from the Lili of the Valley and I have coloured her in using promarkers mainly in the red shades to tie it in with the rest of the card.  I placed a strip of the red card along the bottom of the card to create a ribbon effect and also I wanted to add the Granddaughter sentiment to the card and this was the best place to attach it.  I then stamped the 1 from the crafters companion numbers collection in the matching red and stamped today onto that to show up when placed on the card. 

For the inside of the card, I used the same red spotty background. I then cut out 2 circles, one in red and the other in white so that they would have somewhere to write on the inside of the card and also to stamp the Lili of the Valley verse on the inside to.  I cut the circles out using the Creative Memories Cutting System and they give a perfect circle everytime. I love them.  Along the middle of the inside, I also did a ribbon effect with the card just to break it up a little bit.  Hope you like her as much as I do as I had so much fun making her. 

Love Bex xxx
