Villainess Birthday Card


Today's card is for someone special in my life. She is my oldest and dearest friend, who long ago transcended the boundaries of friendship, and crossed over into family. She is my sister at heart. My daughter grew up knowing her as "Auntie" and as her godmother.

The two of us couldn't be more opposite, but together we work. Missy is vivacious and outgoing, while I am a complete introvert and happy in the shadows. She knows exactly how to pull me out of my shell. We have laughed together and cried together. Prolonged periods can pass, yet once together again, that missing time disappears, and it is as if we had just spoken minutes ago. I know if needed, she would be at my side in a heartbeat, and I would do the same thing for her. That is my definition of family. Love is being able to trust a person with your heart. 

Our families share an absolute love of Disney, and we have great memories of shared Disneyland vacations. While my favorite Disney princess is Belle (who doesn't love a princess that cherishes books?), Missy is drawn to the Villains. 

What better Villain to feature on the front of her card than Maleficent? She is an iconic Disney villain and the star of Fantasmic. Although, some might argue that honor goes to Mickey...

On the inside of the card, I chose Ursula, the evil sea-witch that steals Ariel's voice. Alright, so technically, Ariel foolishly gave up her voice, but there were some definite shenanigans at work. 

Since I didn't have an appropriate stamp for the sentiment, I decided to make up my own. I downloaded the font, Deutsch Gothic, from Dafonts. I thought it was perfect for the card. 

The digital paper is gorgeous. It is called Seamless Purple Gothic, and it is by DigitalCurio. The villain cut files are from Design Studio and purchased separately. They are not included in Access. For bling, I used a few diamond gems on the interior and then added some pretty green gemstones from the Honey Bee Log Cabin pack that matched the swirls in the paper. The lace was made using a Tim Holtz Lace die

It is already the 28th of September, which means this is the last card in month-long tribute to Disney! Please join me next week as we start off October with a chuckle.

Until then, wishing you a happy and healthy week!
