Hannah for Lauren...

I picked up the Hannah Montana cart from Cutting Edge Crafts for the princely sum of £15 a few weeks ago. It was an ex demo/workshop cart but who cares?! It works perfectly so I reckon that I got a bargain! I used the Hannah image for this card for my niece Lauren who was 17 last week. I used an 8x8 offset gatefold for the base card and I punched the edge of the largest section with an MS border punch. I used First Edition papers, gems and purple glittercard for the card. The Hannah image was cut first in black cardstock, then a white blackout which I coloured with ProMarkers filling in the face and hands. I hand cut the hair blackout, adhered it to the black cut then adhered the flesh coloured behind it. I thought that the image was a bit plain with a black shirt, so I cut the main image again from patterned paper, then cut just inside the lines to create a t-shirt, which was then adhered to main image leaving a border all round, a bit of a faff but worth it! I adhered the finished cut to a panel which was stamped with a 'Happy Birthday' sentiment, and I added a '17' with purple gems. 'Lauren' was cut from purple glitter card and adhered with foam pads to the narrow section of the gatefold. A trio of gems to the bottom of the panel completes the card.
