I made this card for the Papertrey Ink challenge to make a card inspired by the work of Maile Belles (one of their designers). So I decided to case her "Wishing you a lovely birthday" card. I liked that there was a space between the panels and started with that.
I started with a piece of pink cardstock and stamped the couple from the Papertrey Ink Simply Jane set in red ink. I then used a paper trimmer to cut the straight line around shoulder height and fussy cut around their heads. I trimmed the bottom so it would fit on my white card base and lined up a second piece of pink cardstock with the heads tucked under. I stamped the frame in black ink, so it slightly overlapped on their feet but, with the heads covered, not their heads. I then trimmed the top of the second piece so it would fit the card.
I stamped the sentiment, from the same set, on the bottom of the card in black ink.
I used a tape runner to stick the top piece on first, then the panel with the figures, with the heads stuck to the top piece. For accent I added a few sequin hearts.
