Pretty in Pink

Here’s an adorable little girl image from Scrapbook Stamp Society.  Isn’t she cute?  First I colored her up and then,  I made this card using wonderful paper from Paper Temptress. YUMMY!  I usually tend to color my images first, then go through gorgeous papers to find that Oh So Perfect piece of paper that matches!

The base of the card as well as the card the image is printed on  is Neenah Solar White 80lb.  It’s a nice versatile white paper, it’s also great for running through my printer as it’s stiff, but not TOO stiff.  I can use it for cards like this, when I am adding additional layers to my card since the additional layers will add strength to the weight of the card.  The 2nd layer was added for color, it’s a gorgeous pink that matched both the transparency and the copic markers, it’s Poptones Razzleberry.  The Hambly Overlay used here is Magenta Brocade.  Totally gorgeous.  Look at the wonderful background it makes on this card.

I have had a couple people ask me about how to attach these see though overlays onto the card.  You can hold it in place using many methods:  brads (like the dragonflies above), well placed glue dots, colored paper clips, colored staples, certain adhesives (esp if used in covered area like behind the stamped image), punch a hole and use ribbon, take a full card size piece and simply use ribbon to hold the card together, or find a clever way to hide the adhesive holding your layers by adding a decoration on top!

Hope this sweet smiling little girl makes you want to create something today.

Cheers, Holley
