Bright, Cheerful & Girly -- For My Granddaughters

I have five granddaughters under the age of 8, and with the birthdays all coming between June and the mid September, I decided to create them all at the same time. I still need to come up with a couple that are a little different as I don't want sisters to each be given the same card. You will see three in this photo, but I just completed 6 more. The extras will be to sell to anyone who may want a bright cheerful little girl cards. I may even consider this card for a class as it is not too complicated or time-consuming to construct.

I used a Hero Arts Cling Three Flowers Stamp set (the largest flower) on bright patterned papers and cut them out (2 per Flower - one on the white cardstock, and the second popped up using foam tape.. For the flowers I used copics to darken the flower center and add some dimension. Rhinestones are used to embellish. Using a paper & ribbon slot punch set I hammered ribbon slits into the sides of the white and blue layer.

I am going to change the tag I made for the one card because it just doesn't seem right. And if I like it, I'll make the same for the others.

This second image is blurry, but I decided to include it so that you can see the layers popped up with foam tape.

Now I just need to make my one and only grandson a card who has his birthday in the same time period as all my granddaughters.It is kind of interesting that all six of my grandchildren have their birthdays between June and mid September.
