It's my niece Kate's 18th birthday today..Happy Birthday Kate!...... and this is the card that I made for here. I used a layout inspired by a sketch (TESC104) from here and papers from Dovecraft. I went with a purple & green colourway with a white embossed panel for the name. I cut the model out of black card and then the clothes were cut twice, in purple handmade paper and green fabric-effect paper. The purple piece was cut down to create a sleeveless top which was then adhered over the whole green piece. I added a necklace made from silver cord and a square jewelled brad, and some silver pearls around the neck and around the waist for a funky belt. I added some more cord around the wrists for bracelets and added some more tiny silver pearls for earrings. The completed model was adhered to the card front with foam pads. I added irridescent purple ribbon and a bow with a green jewelled brad in the centre. 'Kate' was cut from purple glittercard and adhered with foam pads in the white panel & '18' was cut from green glittercard & adhered in the smaller blue panel. The card was completed with some gemstones on the name panel and a simple sentiment inside cut from purple glittercard.
Model- Forever Young
'Kate' , '18' & 'Birthday Wishes'- Lyrical Letters (Jumbo font)
