|birthday card with pin|
The girls asked me to make something with the Domino's gift image. It's such a cute image I was happy to oblige.
Say hello to Domino, isn't she a good doggie! If you love her as much as I do you can get the digital image here.

A small piece of black (or any color you like) card stock for the backing, this adds some stability and strength to the pin.
A jewelry pin, you can pick these up in most craft stores. They come in different sizes and finishes. I pick them up in small sizes because I usually make small pins. The finish doesn't matter to me.
Coloring and decorative mediums. You can use pencils or markers. I’ve made these with copics as well as Stampin’ Up markers. Colored pencils will work. You may like to put sparkles on the pin which gives a nice effect (be careful a little goes a long way). Today I am going to use some stickles on the wreath/border aroud this image. (This image would be really cute for a Christmas present). These directions include the numbers of the markers I used for this particular pin, but you can use any colors for yours. If you're not sure how to substitute colors, pick colors that you like or pull colors from the designer papers you will be using to make the card. Have a light and dard shade of each color, use the light color as the base color and shade with the darker one.
Glossy Accents (Ranger product) or Crystal Effects (from Stampin’ Up). I’ve used both products and they work exactly the same. I’ve never used UTEE but I’m told it works too
A plastic work mat or a piece of waxed paper is helpful – especially if you like the finish on your work table.
Time - Parts of the card require drying time, you can't rush this. So don't wait to the last minute. You can make this in a night, but you will need a few hours.
Let’s get started.
Color the present with B01 Mint Blue and shade the lines with B02 Robin’s Egg Blue. Repeat this on the second image, again this is the one that will show.
|affix the image to a slightly larger piece of cardstock|
If you like to sign your work, now would be a good time to do it. Flip over the base image, keep in mind that you will be adding a pin to the back and sign it in a place that won't be covered by the pin.
Once it's dry your pin is ready to wear or give away.
I hope these directions were clear, please let me know if something didn't make sense.
