Alice the Queen--In Wonderland

Hello Dreamers!
I have two fun cards to share today.  I made one for a friend and one to put in my to send box (it will go to a special someone later).  I used a stamp of Alice in Wonderland from Stampendous and a fun sentiment from Technique Junkies/Stamp Camp stamps. The color scheme is a soft neutral pallet of creams and taupe.  Lots of pics......
Here is the first card:

Materials List:
Stamps: Wonderland from Stampendous; Sentiment from Technique Junkies; Small leaf and flower- Branching Out set from Gina K Designs
Ink: Rich Cocoa Memento; Tattered Rose Distress 
CS: Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake - Stampin' Up; taupe from Bazzill
Markers: Milled Lavender and Tattered Rose Distress markers
Paper Doily
Pearl Bead Trim


  • Make a card from the taupe CS
  • Add  a doily to the right side of the card
  • Stamp Alice and leaf with Rich Cocoa, and flowers with Tattered Rose on Very Vanilla CS
  • Color parts of the dress with markers
  • Add to the card

  • Stamp the sentiment 
  • Tie ribbon around card
  • Add the sentiment and the pearls
  • Glue buttons to doily

  •  Stamp the leaf and flower on the inside

The second version of the card is just slightly different.  I used a larger piece of Very Vanilla CS and had room to stamp the sentiment.

Don't you just love that sentiment??!!  I think it is so cute!!
