Annie's AG Themed Card

I am so excited I was invited to be apart of Annie's all girls 'American Girl' birthday weekend! Annie is Lou's daughter and she is turning 11 this week!

This weekend is all about Annie and one of the things she loves dearly...her American Girl (AG) dolls! So I knew the card I was going to make for her was going to have an 'American Girl' feel and here is what I came up with! Pinks and purples and stars and strips and even some bling! I really had a blast making this for her!

The stars were punched out of Brushed Silver, Melon Mambo, Perfect Plum and Rich Razzleberry card stock using the small star and the large star punches. They were mounted onto a piece of Vellum card stock that was layered on top of Melon Mambo strips. Then I added a few Basic Rhinestones to add some bling!

The greeting I made using a few different stamp sets and then mounted it onto a crumpled piece of Silver Waffle paper.

When you open the card it has a place for a gift card. I made my own for her. Here is a close up of the gift card that I made. I die cut the letters and numbers using my Big Shot and the Timeless Type alphabet in Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry card stocks and then layered them. I mounted the letters and numbers on to a piece of Perfect Plum card stock and then onto a piece of Brushed Silver card stock that has some more Silver Waffle paper tucked in between the two layers. Then of course a few more rhinestones aka BLING!

I stamped the "happiness" stamp all over the Melon Mambo card stock on the inside of the card. Here you can see it.

I really had a ton of fun making this special card for my friend Annie! Happy Birthday!!

Thanks for looking!
