My niece, Allison, turns 7 today! Now that she lives out of state, we don't get to see her very often. As far as I know, her favorite colors are still pink and purple. Anyone recognize where I got the inspiration for this card?
To make it, I punched three sizes of circles from five different shades of pink and purple cardstock scraps using my Fiskars 1" Circle Punch, EK Success 0.5" Circle Punch, and Fiskars 0.25" Circle Punch (affiliate links here and throughout the post). I added letter stickers to the largest circles spell out Allison, then glued them onto a piece of white cardstock, cut just smaller than my white card base. Next, I glued on the 0.5" circles and filled in with the 0.25" circles. I made the border with the Fiskars Apron Lace border punch. I'm really happy with this card and hope Allison likes it.
Happy birthday, Allison!
Happy Birthday, Allison!
