Hello Kitty for Holli......

My great-niece Holli is 2 today. Happy Birthday Holli! I wanted to make her a Hello Kitty card but what can a gal do when she don't have the cart?! Well, she turns to t'internet and SCAL that's what she does! I put 'Hello Kitty free font' into Google and the Hello Kitty website came up with 2 free fonts-an image and a font- which I downloaded into my laptop and I used it to create the Kitty with balloons. I cut it once in outline in black then in blackout in white (I paperpieced the clothes & balloons)She's approximately 5 x 4" in size but of course with SCAL you can make her any size you want. I downloaded a Simpsons font too so I'll have to see what I can do with that!
The card base is a z-fold made from a piece of A2 card cut in half length wise. I then folded it in half,then folded the front of the card back on itself. I used Dovecraft papers for decoration and a floral circle embossing folder for the pink panel. I cut a large no 2 from pink star paper and shadowed it with dark pink pearlised card.This was adhered flat to the card. Happy birthday was cut from pearlised card and 'HOLLI' from pink glittercard. 'Holli' was adhered to the no 2 with foam pads.I added a flower to Kitty's bow to complete the card.
Carts used:
