Indie Girl PI


I seem to be on a bit of a Pure Innocence kick lately! This one is called Being Cute Is What I Do. Most of this card is just the result of playing around with some Sassafras Lass Indie Girl border stickers and 6x6 papers. For the stamped image, I colored the skin and hair with Copics, then paper-pieced her outfit. The Kraft mystery mound (maybe a rock? a hill? a mountain in the distance?) was die-cut with a Spellbinders Labels Fourteen Nestabilities die and dry embossed with Cuttlebug's Seeing Spots embossing folder. In front of that is some green felt grass cut with My Favorite Things' Fresh Cut Grass Die-namics die. The clouds were also done with an MFT Die-namics die, Clouds Trio. The banner is from an Indie Girl flag banners 12x12 sticker sheet.



On the inside ... more of those pretty Indie Girl papers, a blank space to write a message (die-cut with a Spellbinders Lacey Circles Nestabilities die), and another piece of a flag banner sticker.

My daughter *loves* these Pure Innocence girls, so I can't wait to tuck this into her lunch box one day next week!

Have a fantastic day, and thanks for checking in!

Amy, I don't know how you do it everytime but each of your cards is so precious. I just love all of the detail that you put into each one. I love how you used these papers and the rock and the grass are just perfect embellishments. Have a wonderful day!

This card is so clever! You have such a great eye for details that most of us never even consider. The little hill of brown behind your PI girl is too cute, and your paper piecing of her clothes is just perfect! Love the heart pennants also <3
