Step 1:
prepare 2 sheets of 12×12 cardstock by directly inking purple ink pad onto them.
(why not use purple cardstock? well you can…. I just didn’t have enough in my stock ;) )

Step 2:
Find and print out colouring in pictures of Barbie and Barbie logo.
On other 2 sheets of white cardstock trimmed down to printer size.
I printed the barbie picture by right clicking the file image on my compute and choosing “print”
press Next until I get to the size of prints
And choosing “wallet prints”
Number of times to use each picture: 9


Step 3:
Trim the inked paper card base to six 4″ x 12″ cards and fold in half.

Step 4:
Trim the spotted pink cardstock to 1″ x 61/2″  strips and some dark purple cardstock 2 1/4″ x 3 1/4″

Step 5:
Trim the pictures and Barie logo close to the edges of the images.

Step 6:
Trim some more dark purple cardstock to fit the Barbie logo

Step 7:
Stamp the words “birthday” and “party” onto white cardstock and cut dark purple cardstock to fit that.

Step 8:
mount and colour in image with your pencils

Step 9:
apply the pink dotted strip to the card. And trim to size.

Step 10:
cut 14″ of ribbon and tie around the middle of the card

Step 11:
Foam mount the picture of Barbie onto the card over the ribbon.

Step 12:
Finish off the card by adding the mounted words
I also added glitter glue to the flowers on Barbies dress.
