A cute kids card with a distressed background paper
The background paper for this card was part of a calendar my sister gave me years ago and I created another card with the other half a few days ago. I embossed this one with a polka dot embossing folder and used an ink pad to highlight the texture. I did all the edges as well. I found this tag that worked with it so went looking in my images stash to see what I could find that was the right size. I found this cute image of two little fairies in a tea cup which worked perfectly!! These stamped images were given to me by a friend quite a few years ago and it is fun to use them and remember the connection!! I watercoloured the image, trimmed top and bottom with scalloped scissors and then pierced the scallops with a push pin. I adhered it to my tag and then worked on a layout!! I used the red scrap I had trimmed off the background just below the image and over the bottom of the tag and then layered a cute little laser printed greeting with triangles before adhering it to my large element. I added a large brad to the hole in my tag before gluing the whole thing to a turquoise card. Really like how this one turned out - not the typical kid's card!!
