Happy, happy birthday, Emma Aguilar, the original "Paper Princess"! Today the first My Creative Time Design Team is having this blog hop to thank Emma for giving us the opportunity to be on her design team AND to wish her the happiest of birthdays! Emma, you are a dream to work with. I LOVE your stamps and all of the fun we have together! Wishing you a year of happiness, GOOD HEALTH, and big things to come!
Now, on to the card. This is a tri-shutter card. I first learned how create one of these by watching a video by Mary on Cardz TV. If you want to make one, I recommend checking out her video here. You start with a 5 1/2" x 12" sheet of cardstock, and with all of the scoring and folding, it ends up to be 5 1/2" x 4" card when folded up.
I had fun choosing my sentiments. I used three of Emma's stamp sets! "Birthday wishes" is from Polka Dot "SURPRISE", "To the Best" is from My Teacher Rocks!, and "Paper Princess" is from Paper Princess! Click here for ordering information on all of Emma's stamp sets. I embossed all of these with white embossing powder, and I added buttons made with Papertrey Ink dies, coasters (to make them thicker), and patterned paper. My "birthday cake" is cut at 4 1/2" from the Wrap it Up cartridge, trimmed down to fit my space, and the candles (also from this cartridge) are cut at 2".
I cut the party hat at 3 3/4" from the Birthday Bash cartridge. Last, but not least, is my mini-Emma. She is printed and cut from the Best Friends Imagine cartridge at 4.8". I used layers from 3 different girls to get her look. Emma's Gypsy is cut at 1/2" from the Cricut Everyday cartridge.
