Once Upon a Birthday

I was my niece's 2nd birthday several weeks ago. My siblings and I got her a pink camouflage trampoline. Hilarious! She LOVES it!! And all the cousins love it too. Kept them all busy for awhile.

I made this card for her. She's such a little princess! We just love her up.

I used several cuts from the Once Upon a Princess Cricut cartridge. The princess was cut at 3 inches in all layers. The "birthday girl" and crown cut were both cut from OUAP in varying sizes.

This is the first time I used Copic markers. Nothing too fancy. I just colored her skin and cheeks, and added some highlights to her hair. I'm just a beginner and always looking for new tips.

This is what my mat looked like before I cut out all the images. The paper I used was from the Imaginisce "Enchanted" line. The background of my card is actually a piece of 6x6 paper from this awesome pack.

Imaginisce "Enchanted" 6x6 paper pad can be found at Shop Pumpkin Spice.

I am showcasing this card at Fantabulous Cricut. This weeks challenge is "Birthday Bash" : make a birthday project!! Check out all the awesome designer's creations. Then link your birthday project! We love to see all your creations.

  1. Great job with the challenge- any little girl would love this princess card! :)Amy

  2. Super sweet princess, and I love how you showed how you laid out the paper before cutting.

  3. Sweet princess card! Great work on using the DSP!

  4. Very cute! I have some Copics but don't break them out very often...but love it when I do! They are great for colouring in stamped images - just make sure to use Memento ink, not Staz-on!

  5. Great card. I really liked the background scenery. The detail and all the different colour and papers, shows how much effort you put into this card. Hope the little princess loves the card. TFS

  6. Very cute card. I love cards like this since I have 3 granddaughters. Love the paper. Very pretty.

  7. Sweet, sweet card! My granddaughter would soooo love your card, she is all about the Princesses! I love the soft, muted colors you pretty!

  8. What a super sweet card! I love all the details, especially the crown. Great colors and patterns, too.

    Your fellow DT gal,

  11. Oh, she is so sweet! I love the papers you used and how you coordinated them so nicely. And the number "2" on her crown is cute!

  12. This is so sweet! The soft colours are wonderful and I love the way you've added a 2 in the crown!
