Hailey's Bday Card



This is the birthday card I made for my daughter, Hailey, this year. I gave it to her already so I can post it now. I bought this Sarah Kay stamp years ago from Stamper's Dream because it reminds me so much of her.....artistic, beautiful, and sweet. Yep, that's my girl. {{big proud mama grin}}

It's a long card because it was holding a gift certificate to her favorite hair salon. I went with brown and green to match the colors on the gift certificate. It measures 4" x 8.5" and fits in a regular #10 envelope. The image is stamped on Cryogen Poison Ivory CS, colored with Copics, and I added some Stickles to her belt and white dots on her cheek. The main image and sentiment are both up on foam tape.

Have a great day!

Adorable card and such a sweet image. I really like the idea of the long card but how do you get a 8.5 card? Dumb question, I know.
