Birthday Card for Barbie

The doll many of us played with as kids celebrated her Birthday on March 9th.  Launched in 1959, she is an icon, agree or disagree with what she stands for. I could not miss the opportunity to use my new LifeStyle Crafts die for the ponytail girl profile on this card. 
I used LifeStyle Crafts Heritage Set die for the silhouette, tree and banner for the sentiment

Recipe:
  • A2 size card - 4.25 x 5.50 inches using American Crafts white card stock in 110 lb
  • First layer is Fellows Report cover stock cut 4 x 5.25 inches
  • Second layer is Die Cuts With a View (DCWV) Essentials 6 x 6 stacks bright pink circle pattern
  • Silver doily is Wilton Cake pack, from what I recall, this little pack has been in my stash for many years
  • Heritage Set die from LifeStyle Crafts used for the Tree, Banner and Ponytail Girl Silhouette
  • Banner sentiment if from Stephanie Bernard's Stamps of Life - Branches4Build set
  • Tiny star embellishments are from a RAK, I am sorry, I can't remember who sent me these adorable stars
  • The inside of the card, which I neglected to show in the video, has a bubble gum pink layer cut to 4 x 5.25 inches and another Ponytail Girl Silhouette in the lower right hand corner
  • The back of the card is stamped with my Created By UPC symbol stamp which I got from an eBay seller

  1. Gorgeous card, as usual! Sorry I've not been around lately. I was sick for 3 months, then had 2 surgeries. So I've had it a little rough! I hope to get back to watching your videos and following your blog soon! Keep up the great work Natasha! ~ Hugs ~ Pat (PatsTreasuresNCrafts on YT)
