SUPER GIRL

I AM THRILLED TO ANNOUNCE
the birth of
ENZO!

Enzo, our second grandchild, (and first GRANDSON!) was born February 9, 2017. 

We finally got to meet him when he was three days old.

WELCOME TO THE WORLD, PRECIOUS LITTLE BOY!


As you may recall in posts these past years, our other grandchild, Stella, (who is now 9) always gets a special card made by Grandma for all occasions. Her Valentine this year was no exception.

Stella is currently into Superheroes. So I thought it would be fun to create her Valentine picturing HER as a Superhero.


I loved being able to use the star burst made from the Star Blast Edgelits Dies on page 11 of the Occasions Catalog as a Superheroes crown.

To make her hair, I cut a circle and an oval in half. Using only one half of the circle and both halves of the oval, I employed the Fringe Scissors (page 189 of the big catalog) to make her hair and bangs look super real. Right??



The inside of the card told all:


What's sort of funny and cute is that I embossed the whole card with the Falling Petals embossing folder (page 51 in the Occasions Catalog) rather than simply a separate piece that is adhered to the card base. You can see in the photo above how the embossed design covered the inside and outside. 

One last look at Super Girl Stella:
