Chevron and Prima Dolls

Today's post is for a challenge at Top Tip Tuesday. The theme for the challenge is CHEVRONS. 
To be honest, when I first started seeing the chevron pattern coming up everywhere I did not like it. 
It has toadally grown on me and is now one of my favorite things! It's a great pattern to use for any occasion. Today I used it to make a pretty birthday card for a very special little niece. She is turning 11 next month. 

The Chevron paper I chose is S.E.I  Kraft Basics brand. I picked this up at Michael's. It came in a book of 24 sheets of different patterned foil papers.

I chose to use the Prima Doll Cassandra. The crown is very fitting for a birthday princess =)
I colored her and the bow for her dress with Copic Markers, fussy cut, and then cut her dress out of pretty pink paper. (here's the Copic Markers I used)

The flowers and the doily (Martha Stewart products) came from our local stamp store. I find new and exciting things every time I go in there! 

Aren't the flowers just gorgeous!?! 

The frame is from the Cricut image set Fancy Frames. I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink Vintage Photo around the edges of the brown part of the frame. On the flourish part of the frame I added Star Dust Stickles to make it sparkle. 

Thank you very much for stopping by Toadally Love To Craft! Happy Crafting!

  2. Tina this is a FABulous card and I want to make sure it is entered in our challenge at TTT. You only have one linked up and it's the Christmas card. Hurry girl and get this one linked up too. Good luck! xx

    1. Thank you very much Lisa! And thank you for your wonderful blog! That's where I learned of these fun challenges and the DT call. I got it linked this morning =)

  3. A great card. I was a little like you, a bit slow in becoming a fan of chevrons but I love them now. Thanks for joining Top Tip Tuesday. Elaine

    1. Thank you! I'm starting to think there might be a lot of us that were a little slow liking Chevron. Lol. I do love them now though!
