Hi Stamping Friends. Last week we had a special gathering of a few Girl Scout Daisies and their moms to earn the Card Making Badge. These are the cards we made. We also made a little flower on a stick, I don't have a picture of. The girls did real well (so did the moms).
The ballerina card is so cute (no not my design--it's a CASE). The skirt is made using 2-1/2" x 11" vellum strips, covered with pretty in pink ink (either a brayer or ink pad direct to paper). Once dry, punch out five of petals from the Build A Blossom punch (largest and smallest sizes) which are attached with the mini glue dots on the top. The bodice portion is punched using the Tab punch, and scooped out on the top to make the neckline. The stamp set for the dress is Itty Bitty Bits in melon mambo, certainly celery and pretty in pink. The 1/8" old olive ribbon works well for a belt, and the pompoms are a great addition (although they are no longer available). Rhinestones create a necklace and add a little bling to the skirt.
The shirt card is made using origami technique in this video. The tie is stamped from the Best Dad Ever stamp set and cut out.
Do you have a local Girl Scout or Daisy group that is looking to earn their card making card, feel free to email me.
