Howdy peeps! I hope your week is off to a great start! I have a kitten update which I’ll keep short: We took our little guy, Fogg, to the vet yesterday where he’ll likely stay for a couple days. The vet feels like overall he has a slightly better chance of survival than his sister (Stormie) had, so all we can do is continue to pray. We sure would appreciate some prayers from you all if you are the praying type. <3 Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I have another card to share this morning that I created from the Jack and Lily Collection, which is the newest release over at Prickley Pear Stamps! Isn’t Lily adorable?! The Jack and Lily characters were created in the likeness of the owers’ real-life grandkids. And you know me and fun folds… I can’t get enough of them! I thought this teepee card showcased Lily perfectly with the pastel colors!
I cut the teepee card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock along with layering panels from Papertrey Ink Green Parakeet cardstock and My Favorite Things Sweet Celebration and Hot Off The Press Sweet Pea patterned papers. I assembled the card base, adhered the cardstock and patterned paper layers, and added a magnet closure. Using the Hello Lily stamp set, I stamped Lily and her clothing and other elements on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock, colored them with alcohol markers (and added Ranger Glossy Accents to her rain boots), and cut them with the coordinating Hello Lily die set. I created a rosette with the Tim Holtz Alterations Mini Paper Rosettes die and stamped the Hi sentiment on the center circle. I created the birthday sentiment on the computer and printed it on white cardstock, trimmed it and adhered it to the back panel. I adhered Lily to a plain die cut and then adhered her and the rosette to the front of the card. I added gemstones from the Trinity Stamps Andradite Sparkle Embellishment Mix and Trinity Stamps Morganite Muse Embellishment Mix using the Trinity Pick-Up Stick to complete the card.
Here’s one more look at the card folded flat for mailing. I so love how this turned out! I can only imagine how adorable this child is in real life!
