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 squeaked 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 amazing crafter. She makes the most beautiful, feminine CAS cards ever. You can check her beautiful makes at Papercraft With Crafty. So no pressure, hey? 😉
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. Glittery scalloped circle is 1-1/4 Scallop Circle punch. To make it I didn’t use glimmer paper. I punched it from 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.
