I love to make birthday cards for friends and family. Makes me so happy to see their smiles, it makes my day. And when the card I make is a challenge and turn out better then I hoped for?! Well, I nearly squealed with excitement when I finished this card for my friend’s birthday. She received the card already so I can share it with you now.
My friend Linda is an amazing crafter and she makes the most beautiful, feminine cards ever. So no pressure there, haha
I wanted to create a card that is soft, feminine and exciting. Plus I wanted to use some cool techniques.
I stamped this beautiful wreath in Versamark, heat embossed with Heat & Stick powder and sprinkled with Gold Stampin’ Glitter. I heat set it again and watercoloured flowers and leaves. Then I die-cut ‘happy’ twice: in basic black and blushing bride, and glue them together. I slightly offset both pieces for ‘shadow’ effect.
I love this cute sentiment from Circle of Spring. I do not own many punches, so I had to cut it out with Circle Framelits Dies. But I believe you could use 1″ Circle punch too. The glittery scalloped circle is 1-1/4 Scallop Circle punch. To make it I didn’t use glimmer paper. I punched it from a piece of paper, squashed it into Versamark and again used Heat & Stick powder and gold glitter. It’s so easy to make your own glimmer paper, and I love it.
Just look at all this sparkle ✨✨✨ I love it!
Hope you like my little card, and maybe you will try to add some sparkle to your projects too.
Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day,
