#99: "Welcome 2012!" Make a "Happy New Year" card using any cartridge(s) and any colors you'd like.
Due: Jan 17th (Link your card here)
Here is my design team card. I have made Miss Hippo here with the big kissy lips before but it was time for a comeback so here she is again ready for her New Year's Eve KISS - 5..4..3..2..1.. Happy New Year!!
Isn't she FABULOUS?? I had so much fun making this card, I hope it inspires you to get your own New Years cards going and linked up here by Jan 17th for an entry into Mary's monthly drawing. I can't wait to see what you all have in store for us. And for some really awesome inspiration, check out all the design team projects!
Here are my card details:
Hippo & party hat are cut with Create A Critter, but I hid the facial features using my gypsy, and added the lips I cut from Indie Art, some googly eyes, and drawn on eyelashes. The pucker up was cut from ... hmmmmmm.... I am having a brain cramp and for the life of me can't remember which cartridge has this pucker up phrase... if anybody knows this please feel free to drop it into a comment.
N-E-Way... I cut the little flower with a punch and added bling to the center, then covered the petals and Miss Hippo's lips with stickles to give lots of shine and pop. I used my white Sakura gel pen to highlight with dots and dashes, more stickles and that pouffy feather thing on the hat. The sentiment and 2012 were hand written, and I used corner chompers to round and scallop all the corners.
I hope you have fun making your own card, be sure to link it up for the challenge! Happy New Year!
