Happy Birthday Bosslady!!


Today is a very special day at 7 Kids College Fund as it's the boss-lady's birthday!!
~ Happy Birthday Tabitha!! ~

I haven't know Tab for very long but I do know that she is such a wicked funny and kind person.  It is an honor to be designing for her super awesome store.  Myself and some of my DT teamies thought it would be nice to surprise her today with birthday creations just for her!!

My sweet friend, Tracy sent me this adorable image, Congratulations Tilda.  She is from the You Are So Special Collection, which is now available at 7 Kids College Fund.


I've made a Big Buckle card and you can find the tutorial HERE.  The photo above shows the card "unbuckled".  Honestly, I didn't really use the tutorial except for a general guideline.  My card measures 5" x 5 1/2" and my buckle is 1 1/2".  The image is popped up using foam tape for dimension and to give a little pocket for the buckle to go into.  My DP is from My Mind's Eye, Home and I've paired it with the Parisian border punch from EK Success, because I thought it had a festive look to it.  And I of course used Stickles and Shimmerz for sparkle on the bow, party hat, dress trim and along the image panel edges.


The above photo is of the open.  It's blurry (sorry) and I didn't realize until it was too late that the sentiment is crooked.  (Ughh!!)  The pearl flourish on the side/inside of the card was done by me using individual pearls.


I invite you to check out the 7 Kids College Fund blog to take a peek at all of Tabitha's birthday cards.

Wendy, this is FANTASTIC! Your coloring is awesome! Love the idea of the buckle card! I am starting to fall in love with these Magnolia stamps now that I am into busting out my copics. This cute card may have pushed me oer the edge to buy some. Damn you. Ka-ching! ;)

Love the play of light on her dress & that border punch is delightful. I especially like the way that swirl is visible with the card closed above the buckle. Love the way you've picked out the colours of the papers too with the colouring of the image.

I LOVE that pearl flourish! Great job! I really like the slider sentiment tab (I hope you can figure out what I mean!!). That is SUCH a clever idea. I'm going to have to figure that one out and try it myself!
(PS I am the queen of crooked sentiments.)
