*cute chick with nice hare*


Here's a fun card I made for my little niece, Jazi. She gave my daughter, Livi, the cutest pink t-shirt. It had a chick and a bunny on it, and beneath them it said "cute chick with nice hare". It was the perfect shirt for Livi! She has tons of beautiful, long hair. Her cousin, Jazi, is cute as a button... a little towhead with baby fine hair. She just loves Livi's hair, so when she spotted the shirt and was told what it said, she insisted on getting it for Livi. How sweet! I love making kids' cards, and it was fun to create this one to match Livi's new shirt.

I was on the demo side of the Stampin' Up website the other morning, and I watched a short video that showed a fun technique. The demonstrator stamped a flower onto vellum and then flipped it over to the backside and dry-embossed it. It gave me the idea to try something similar on cardstock. I knew that if I colored my images with copic markers it would bleed through to the back and I would be able to see where I had colored the images. I embossed the balloons, the bow, the bunny's eyes, and the bunny's tail. I think I pushed a bit too hard, but with a little practice I think it would be a cool effect.
