Pretty In Pink

I hope you are having a beautiful day! I’m gonna give you something for your sweet tooth today - and put you on a pink overload! Ive got a cute card today that you can send as a thank you or just to let someone special know you are thinking of them. I know it looks fussy but everything came together quick and easy. Pretty Little Studio products make it a snap because they are perfectly coordinated and all their dies are cut and ready to work with.

I started with a A2 (4.25 x 5.5”) card base. To add some color I usually matt my designs with a smaller panel of colored card stock. Now for the foundation - a smaller panel of pattern paper from the You & Me collection. Next I added a smaller square panel of pattern paper, and a die cut border cut from solid card stock to keep the die from having a “floating” appearance..
A pretty lace Cambridge Doily (4”) makes this so fancy looking and I thought it would be pretty peeking out the sides of the die cut image. The doilies come in packs of 10 in the shop. 

I added the “Ava” die cut with adhesive foam tape so that it pops up adding a little dimension and to keep my card from looking flat.

To add a little more weight to the bottom of the card to “ground” the die cut I wrapped twine around the cover of the card three times and finished it with a bow.
I hope you will make something beautiful today!

GASP...so much pink!! LOLOL...totally okay...it's gorgeous. As I don't tend to gravitate towards pink too often, oddly, I find myself in a trance by this. That little kitten is just too precious of an addition and I loved reading your techniques too. Vintage anything just makes me melt and this card is in the top of adorableness!!!!
hugs,
