Hi Friends. Today’s project is a great card for a teenage girl. That’s what I had in mind when creating it. In fact, I thought that some of the cards from my Project Life by Stampin’ Up! kit would be perfect. I used the kit Everyday Adventure. Okay, I say teenager, but really I am thinking of my 13 year old niece who is more like 13 going on 21. Ugh- why do they have to grow up so fast?? And is 13 really a TEENAGER? Oy vey!
So to start, I used my Melon Mambo card stock as the base and then cut layers of black and white. I embossed the black layer using my Big Shot Machine and the Alphabet Textured Embossing Folder.
Next, after adding some layers and Silver 1/8″ Ribbon, I used the Scallop Edge Border Punch on a layer of Melon Mambo. Do you have this punch? I definitely think it’s a staple in my craft room.
So the scallop layer was glued behind the 3×4 card from my Project Life by Stampin’ Up! kit. I works perfect, don’t you think? I also took the wood pendant piece from the accessory add-on kit- Everyday Adventure. I pressed it against the Melon Mambo Classic Ink Pad to turn it pink.
Lastly, I stamped the sentiment in Melon Mambo from the Perfect Pennants stamp set. But first, I lined it up using my Stamp-a-majig. This is DEFINITELY a staple you MUST HAVE! I love it for lining up my wood stamps so that I can stamp them and have them not be crooked!
