Yesterday, I created this card for my Daughter Zora who graduates from Kindergarten soon. This is my first use of the Hello Kitty Salutations Cricut Cartridge and I am very happy with the results! I wanted to do a trifold card with the Hello Kitty image hanging over the edge as a way to open the card.
For the inside of the card I used EK success sticko glitter font stickers, Zig Calligraphy pen in Pure Pink and Mod Designs rub ons for the 3 layered flower accent. I was amazed to find out this trick. When I punched the heart border first and then embossed with the cuttlebug folder on the outide, the inside of the card became embossed from the punch I used. I had never tried this before and had never even thought of that effect happening. So to accent the embossed edge on the white cardstock, I wisked hot pink chalk from EK Success over the design. I will be using this subtle technique deliberately in the future. It really helped to tie eveything in. And I didn't have an exclamation point available to me in this font set, so I took a one and cut off a bit at the bottom to make an exclamation point.
We are giving Zora her first real charm bracelet from the Miss Chamilia line. It's a new line for Chamilia and it is perfecr for young girls. This bracelet is tiny and the beads are tiny to match. I cannot wait to see her face when she sees this bracelet! There are two bigger sizes so that older girls can use this line too. I found it to be much more affordable than Pandora who doesn't have a child's line and all the others. The charms are between $15 and $25 each and I think the bracelet was $30. Check it out!
