Happy 100th Birthday on Valentine's Day!

 Hello and Happy Saturday, hope your day is going well. 
Question: what do you make for a dear lady who turns 100 years old this coming Valentine's Day?
Well, here's my answer:
I've made a center step card using Valentine hearts, candy and xoxo's. I combined that with Alice in Wonderland digital clip art, paper stash scraps and a few dies. No stamps, but I did add color to the clip art with my Promarkers and then some glitter with my Spectrum Noir Glitter Marker Pens.
Supply List:
Springhill Digital card for base and printables
Scenic Route polka dot scallop-edged design paper scraps
Gecko Galz digital clip art from Wonders of Wonderland Craft Kit
Promarkers and Spectrum Noir Glitter Marker Pens
Cheery Lynn Candy Hearts dies
Impression Obsession heart dies
WPlus9 XOX Border die
I added the sentiments to the clip art in PSE before printing out. Then I added coloring to the clip art and pieced on the scalloped paper edges.
Another angle...
And another, showing the step folds...
A shot of the inside, created in PSE with 2 die cut hearts added.
And the back, with more clip art colored with Promarkers and added hearts and my stamped siggie.
Overhead shot...
And from this angle you can see the glittered areas...
And one last look.
Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!

A perfect card for the 100 year old it is designed for. Fun and delightful! So glad you joined us at Die Cut Divas for our Valentine challenge.

Bonnie Lynn said...

What a fabulous Valentine card for her! I love it and she's going to as well. I love how you combined the digital and die cut elements my friend. As far as I'm concerned, digital clip art is the stamp as a digital stamp and that's stamping in my book.
