Hi everyone, hope you've had a good week so far. Today I'm sharing a card that I made for Practical Scrappers Birthday Card Challenge.
I know the next three pictures are a little on the dark side, but it's the only way I could really get the glitter to stand out. You can really see the detail if you click on the photos!
To start with I used Neenah card stock, Classic Crest Solar White 80 Cover for everything. The base of my card was cut 5.5 x 4.25 and scored down the center and folded. Then, I used several dies from Memory Box to cut the shapes, I will list all the dies at the end. I stamped a happy birthday sentiment using a Just Right Cling Stamp Set "botanical swirls label SW – 04100" and Jet Black Archival Ink from Ranger. I did a little heat embossing, just skimming across portions that I wanted highlighted using Stampendous Frantage Shabby White & Pink Embossing Enamels and Tim Holtz's Distress Embossing Ink Pad. I layered everything using foam dots and finishing off with a double layered bow.
Here is a close-up/side view shot so you can see the layers better.
