My niece had a birthday way back in April!!! WOW...I am LATE! But, I did want her to know I really did think about her on her birthday. To save total face, I did send her a Facebook note with a birthday image on her day. . .but let's face it, that's not like getting a handmade card in the mail! So, I am catching up.
I chose a card I started at a Stampin' Up cardmaking event hosted by the dynamic duo. . .Dara Peterson & Luci Kirschbaum. This card was createded by Luci and uses a Splitcoast tutorial called the folded skirt as part of its design. I re-created the card with a few modifications as follows: I added a third layer for more color, using Melon Mambo, and I reversed my sentiment cut-out to the right side of the card and my flowers to the left. Luci's design idea is really lovely. . .don't you just love that skirt design. Since starting this card at the event, I have now seen other cards with the skirt design and some even have three pleats instead of just two. You should try one. . .it's fun.
Below is my niece's finished card with my few modifications, and following the card is a picture of my interior design with its verse to compliment the occasion. I think my niece will be pleased with her card even though it is a whole bunch LATE!
