SuperGirl Birthday

Comic Strip Cover Plate is one of my favourite Papertrey Ink dies. 
I've used it for baby cards, and birthday cards for all ages. 
This Supergirl birthday card (for my grandniece who turned 7)
uses stamps and dies from Superhero and Zappy Birthday.   

I started by cutting the cover plate from 
Stamper's Select White card stock and 
then took the rectangular and square boxes 
and tried another water colour technique with 
Blueberry Sky and Spring Rain re-inkers.
 I was attempting to get a splattered look!! 
I used all of the panels for the card, except the top left side.
The picture does not clearly show the outline of the card - 
next time I need to make sure to use a contrasting background 
when photographing a white card!! Hope you can visualize
 that the white frame of the cover plate forms the card front!!  
The top left box was stamped with the dotted image 
from Superhero, before adding the stamped die cut 
and sentiment. (Close To My Heart: Outdoor Denim, Orange inks)
The right box was created by layering several stamped and 
punched circles and then adding a green die cut star. 
I think the favourite part of this card is the mask ...
I used several layers of card stock to make the mask 
very thick and then added a bright green layer 
to give the illusion of cat eyes! 
The mask and Supergirl image were stamped with 
Outdoor Denim Ink; 
the Supergirl sentiment was stamped with Orange ink.

The bottom left box uses only die cuts - 
orange stars from Square Shaker Confetti die 
and Boy Basics: Out of this World. 
The building silhouette was die cut from 
Zappy Birthday Die Collection.
The final box uses the stamps and dies 
(Zappy Birthday) create the raised sentiment panel.
The edges of each box were sponged with Spring Rain ink.

To finish the inside of the card I die cut 
Monthly Moments: Slide Frame and then 
stamped it with polka dots (Building Blocks) 
using New Leaf ink. 
The sentiments (Zappy Birthday) and two scrolled 
lines (To You From Me) complete this panel.
