My First Sizzix Character!

Apologies I haven't been around much lately. I have been so busy with university work that I have had hardly any time to make any cards sadly. I had a 2,500 word essay to do last week (now handed in) and this week I have a 20 minute presentation to do on Thursday (Argghhh my worst nightmare!) so I am busy writing and preparing for that.

Thankfully I had a small amount of time to make a card for my cousin who graduated a little while ago. I decided to get on and make the card without the PB stamp that I wanted as I was running out of time. I saw the Sizzix graduation outfit at The Glitter Pot and thought it was ideal. I have simply made the sizzix character with lots of different CS and added this to a DL card blank with 3D foam pads. I have added a strip of black Bazzill Bling CS accross the bottom of the card and added a Mini Message, again with 3D foam pads. I had to draw the face on myself (hoping to get my hands on the rub-ons soon), I know it is not great but it is my first attempt. My cousin is a fellow cardmaker so I hope she will understand the thought that went into making this card! Apologies the pic is so small but this is as big as I can get it!

CS: Craftwork Cards Softies, Bazzill Bling, Bazzill, Payper Box. ACCESSORIES: Sizzix Dress Ups Body die set, Sizzix Dress Ups Girl Hair die set, Sizzix Dress Ups Gradulation die set, Craftwork Cards Mini Messages.
