SC 024/12…

What a great challenge Kris has provided us with this week.  Along with the sketch, we had to use the stamp set “Under the Big Top“.  For those of us that attended Regionals, this is the set we received FREE!!!!!

I decided to make the card for my little cousin, Kate, who is in hospital having her tonsils out & is very angry at the Doctors for what they did to her.  All she wanted was her “Mummy” & poor ol’ “Pappy” was so upset that Kate didn’t want anything to do with him!!!!  Isn’t that always the way????

I used a lot of pretty colours which I thought a 4 year old would like, including colours that I have not used for so long.

Measurements –
Base Card – Whisper White – 8 1/4″ x 4 1/8″ or 21cm x 10.5cm – Scored in the middled & folded in half
Layer 1 – Pretty in Pink – 5 3/8″ x 3 1/2″ or 13.5cm x 9cm
Layer 2 – Whisper White – 3 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ or 9cm x 4cm
Layer 3 – Bashful Blue – 3 3/8″ x 1 3/8″ or 8.5cm x 3.5cm
Layer 4 – Whisper White – 3 3/4″ x 1 1/2″ or 9.5cm x 4cm
Layer 5 – Certainly Celery – 3 5/8″ x 1 3/8″ or 9cm x 3.5cm

I run Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue & Certainly Celery pieces of Cardstock through the Bigshot using the Embossing Folder – Perfect Polka DotsPretty in Pink was adhered to the Base Card – Whisper White, Bashful Blue & Certainly Celery were both adhered to the corresponding pieces of Whisper White & adhered to Pretty in Pink using Multipurpose Glue.

I stamped the image with Staz-On onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock twice, allowed to dry, before colouring using my Stampin’ Up! Markers & Blender Pen.  I repeated again for the second image except colouring the skirt only, cut out & put aside.

I punched the image using the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch, adhered to a piece of Melon Mambo Cardstock which had been punched with the 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch & adhered to the Base Card.

I adhered the second skirt to the top of the image with Stampin’ Dimensionals & added little dots to the scallops of the Scallop Punch with my White Gel Pen.  Since the photo was taken, I also added Dazzling Diamonds to the top of the sirt with 2-Way Glue Pen.  What little girl doesn’t love a bit of glitter?  What big girl doesn’t????
