Fun in the sun

Today I decided I need to make something just fun. My granddaughters birthday is coming up and we booked a beach house in Gulf shores and they are all coming and meeting us there. It happens to be during her birthday so she really thinks she is special and that the trip is all for her!

I thought a fun little card for her birthday that is also summer related would be cute. I used a minion file from SVGcuttingfiles to accomplish that!

We had a photo to use as inspiration which I will show below so going off all those bold colors I thought this would capture several of them. I used "Simply Black" twine to create some hair. I just pulled the twine apart to give it a string like texture. It was great because it also created a curvy wave to the hair from it being braided together before.

The sentiment is from the "Hello Summer" stamp set that Bella Creationz has. Its perfect for this card with the playful minion.

I used some glossy accents on the eyes to give it some dimension and interest and I also used wink of stella all over the bathing suit top and skirt. I love that stuff. Can't capture it great in a photo but it looks great in person.

I tied a knot in the Aqua and Pumpkin orange and let it flow and adhered each piece using scotch quick dry. I use a special bottle and a fine tip for all my paper piecing and its great for putting down twine like this.

Used a little foam to pup it all off the card. Products will be shown and links are all above!
