Birthday Miyoko

This weekend is the birthday of one of my sisters-in-law. So, I created this cute and simple birthday card featuring Miyoko from Sister Stamps and using a new technique (for me): paper-piecing.

I started by stamping Miyoko on a piece of Copic X-Press blend it paper and colored her in using my Copics. I then stamped her dress on a scrap piece of floral patterned paper. Working very carefully, I cut around the dress. I made sure to cut out the space for hands as well as the sash. I adhered it to the stamped image. Using Copics, I added some shadows on the patterned paper so the kimono didn't look flat.

I die-cut a small panel out of light blue patterned paper, and a larger panel from lilac Doodlebug sprinkles vellum. While I had my BigShot out, I also die-cut the word "happy" out of black cardstock.

I created a panel from patterned paper measuring 4 x 5 1/4 and adhered it to the A2 card base. I then arranged the small panels and adhered them together with my regular adhesive, making sure none of it was around the vellum edges. I added Miyoko to the front using foam squares.

After adhering "happy" to the bottom of the card, I stamped a simple "birthday" and the card was done!
