This is the card I made for the June Recipe Challenge over on my challenge site @ Maisie Moonshine's Mojo Monthly. The ingredients which must appear in the project are stickers (Hello Kitty from a Hello Kitty activity book), Ribbon and Bling. Here's how it was made.

Step 1

12 x 12 pale pink cardstock scored, cut and folded to the template in June's Papercraft Inspirations magazine. Then a line of Hello Kitty (HK) shapes was punched out of the inside of card (punch from W H Smith) punched shapes retained for later.

Step 2

Co-ordinating patterned paper triangle cut and adhered to front of card. All edges, inside and out, chalked with dark pink and shimmer pink chalks. Sticker adhered behind rear flap so that Kitty looks like she's peeping out from behind. Large HK sticker matted on dark pink cardstock and cut out.

Step 3

Large HK stickers and two dark pink cardstock flowers, doodled with white ink, (for the sentiment) adhered inside.

Completed card

To finish, a length of pink velvet ribbon, large matted Kitty sticker and additional stickers were adhered to the front of the card, those on the pocket carefully placed to be hidden behind the goodies to be inserted later. Additional Hello Kitty shapes were punched out of co-ordinating card for confetti.

Card with goodies

The finished card filled with Hello Kitty goodies.


And finally... the envelope

The card was made for The BGF's daughter who was 9 on Friday and IS the world's No.1 Hello Kitty fan. I made her a mermaid pocket card last year and The BGF happened to mention that her daughter had taken the card in to school the day before her birthday and was "just wondering" if I might be making a card again this year. I'm glad I didn't let her down! I'm also pleased to report that she loved the card and all the goodies and her mum didn't even mind the Hello Kitty confetti that showered all over the kitchen floor!

All in all a successful project and lovely to do something so girlie!
