Feminine Encouragement Card

We’ve all been there, at one time or another, needing a little encouragement, right? A special handmade card is a great way to let someone know that you are there for them in those times.

Hey there.  Today I'm sharing my take on a feminine themed encouragement card. And what makes a project more feminine than the use of glitter, flowers and ribbon. But wait. You don’t like using glitter? Well I have an alternative. It’s glitter card stock from CutCardStock and it’s on special for the month of April!

I started by stamping the beautiful “Audrey” doll from Prima onto DCS Discount 8.5×11 Card Stock: Smooth Sand Castle Tan and partially stamping onto MirriSparkle Glitter Pink Sapphire 16 pt 8.5×11 Card Stock and DCS White GLITTER Heavyweight 12×12 Discount Card Stock.

The full stamped piece was fussy cut and some color was added to the skin and hair with pencils. The full dress was fussy cut out of the white piece and shoes, hat, belt and border were cut from the pink stamped piece.

I paper pieced the cut pieces as seen in the photo below.

A card base measuring 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches was formed by folding a piece of 8 1/2 x 11 inch Basis WHITE 80lb Cardstock in half. I matted a 8 1/4 x 5 1/4 inch piece of DCS White GLITTER Card Stock to a piece of 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch piece of Silk GLITTER Princess Pink Card stock and adhered to the front of card base.

A 4 1/4 x 7 1/2 inch piece of the Basis White Card Stock was cut and lightly inked with pink ink in the center. This piece was matted with the Silk Glitter Princess Pink Card Stock. I added a piece of pink ribbon to this piece before adhering to the card front.

Next it’s time to add the Prima doll to the card center.

We need some embellishments I stamped, embossed and watercolored 3 flowers and a sentiment on Royal Sundance FELT Brilliant White Card Stock. I fussy cut the flowers and the sentiment.

The flowers, sentiment and a bow were added to complete the card.

I hope you have enjoyed my project and invite you to connect with us over on the CutCardStock Facebook Page.
