My Bestie Birthday Girl

 hEY there~! Hope you are all okay and Life's treating you well. 
This is a birthday card for my cousin. I used ribbon for texture, dies, punch and added sparkle where I could, keeping it flat for mailing. I always try to make her something colorful. 😊
For my layout design, I used Splitcoaststampers sketch SC110 after resizing to A7.
I used My Besties RE-Mix Img 695 digital stamp, printed on Springhill Digital and colored her with Promarkers. I also colored the Avery Elle Ellements banner flag dies/image mat as well as all the little punched hearts. Card base is white Recollections Heavy card and design papers are from The Best of K & Company 12x12 pad. The Stamplorations and CC Designs sentiments were stamped with Versamark white-heat-embossed with Hero Arts ep.
A Couple of close-ups to try to show all the shine and sparkle. White heat embossing on the Avery Elle banner sentiment flag, Wink of Stella on all the little punched hearts, metallic gold Prisma colored pencil in her braids, silver metallic gel pen on her pencil and Nuvo clear glaze on her rose hair clips and coffee and planner.
Here's a close-up of the dotted swiss lace, which I added for some texture and interest. I have some peeking out of the bottom banner flag but also 3 rows up top.
The inside has a different sheet of the K&Company paper and I stamped Autumn Leaves and Deep Red Stamps sentiments.
The back has more of the paper leftover from the front with a Technique Tuesday stamped siggie.
And a final view. Thanks so much for dropping by and I hope you have a great weekend! Until next time, stay well and keep crafting! XOX

Love how bright and colourful this is for your cousin. Loving the texture. Since working in my art journal, I am in tune with creating texture in my journals. I love it when it lands on a card like yours does. I'm quite impressed with the white embossing on the banner. Lovely work Aimes darlin. -- Bethie

Very cute card! I should wait until later to do my commenting. Both my grandsons are here. It's not even seven and they are arguing. This is not going to be a fun week!
