Meet Steph

This is Steph.
Isn't she cute?

As soon as I saw this image, I had to have it. So sweet, so girly.
You can find her over at InStyle Stamps, along with lots of other great images.

This was a really quick card to put together, so I thought I'd show you how I did it. The first thing I did was choose what papers I wanted to work with. I found a great pattern from the "Hopscotch" collection by BasicGrey and paired it up with a fun polka dot cardstock by BoBunny. I decided to use a pink base to pull off the girly look that I was going for. Then I colored my image to match with Copic markers.The next step was choosing a layout. This is usually the most time consuming part for me. Once I picked something that I was happy with, I cut my papers. For this card I cut a 3.5" circle and a 4" x 5" rectangle. Then I adhered them to the card with the rectangle overlapping the circle.I added the image panel on top and popped up the phone and part of Steph's hair with dimensionals. Don't ya just love pop dots?! Next up was some embellishing to finish it off.
Voila! Girly card completed!
Thanks for stopping by to peek at my project today. I'll be back tomorrow with something fit for a princess.

What a cute card!! I love the fun papers you paired with this adorable image. I had to laugh...a lot of kids today will wonder what she's holding on her ear, lol. We used to have a "Harvest Gold" wall phone in our kitchen...aaaahhhh, memories, lol. This is too cute for words Mackenzie -- I like your new profile photo too! Have a great day :)
