Girl with Pigtails Punch Art

My grand-daughter Quinn’s second birthday was yesterday and I made a special little card for her based on a couple ideas I saw on Pinterest!  Here’s the birthday girl!  She is just SO precious!



And here is the card I made!  Her mom likes to have her hair up in pigtails a lot!



Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Pink Pirouette, folded in half.
  • On top is a 4 x 5-1/4 piece of Watermelon Wonder cardstock, embossed with the Confetti Embossing Folder.
  • Her face is the larger Layering Circle cut from some retired Blush Blossom cardstock.
  • Her hair is the same size Layering Circle with Soft Suede cardstock, cut almost in half, them trimmed for some “bangs” and adhered to the top of the face circle.
  • The pigtails were 1/2 x 3″ strips of Soft Suede cardstock, cut in small strips (leave about 1/2″ uncut to adhere behind her head).  Curl with bone folder.
  • Add two small flowers punched from In Colors Pattern DSP in the Watermelon Wonder color.
  • Cut a smaller Layering circle from Blush Blossom for her “arms”, then I used the retired 2-3/8″ Circle Circle to cut her polka dot dress, trimming away the sides on an angle.  (I didn’t even think about the scalloped Layering Circles until I was already finished…but those would work…use the about the size of the head!)
  • Adhere dress and head to the base of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Cut two Black Eyes and 2 small white highlights with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch and nose with Blush Blossom, add to face.
  • Sponge Blushing Bride Ink for cheeks with Sponge Dauber.
  • Hand draw mouth with Basic Black Marker.
  • Add Pearls to hair bows and top of dress.
  • Stamp Happy Birthday from Confetti Celebrations with Memento Black Ink, punch with the Classic Label punch.  Add to front of card.
  • Cut the 2 from retired File Tabs Framelits from Silver Glimmer Paper and adhere to card.


I think this turned out SUPER cute and love how easy it was to personalize with her hair color and birthday!

This is the cutest card ever. I love it! My granddaughters are 13 & 10, no more piggy tails for them I’m afraid. This will go in my file for special cards.
