Anna’ Stampin’ Cave Shadowhunters Fangirl Birthday Card

Anna’ Stampin’ Cave Shadowhunters Fangirl Birthday Card

1

Sharing something a little different with you today. I’m so happy I finally had some spare time to post this awesome card [if I do say so myself 😉 ].

My (not so little anymore) girl had her 16th birthday last Sunday. And because she’s big fan of Cassandra Clare’s Shadowhunters book series, I really wanted to create something in that theme for her.

Obviously I don’t own any matching stamp sets so I had to improvise. I’ve used pretty few current stamp sets to create my card. First I choose black & gold colour combo – I think it fits the theme perfectly. It’s a gate-fold card, with base in Basic Black. I “brushed” Versamark around the edges, added gold embossing powder and heat set it. I didn’t go for perfection – it was meant to be a bit edgy, rough. Next I cut two panels to go on the front. Using Versamark again, I stamped flourishes from Everything Eleanor stamp set, and heat embossed it in gold. As before, I didn’t pay attention to detail on purpose – the more edgy the better.

Inside of the card is pretty simple. I’ve found Angelic Rune symbol online, printed it on copy paper and then traced it on a piece of basic black. I hand-cut it and heat embossed it with Iridescent Ice embossing folder first. But I didn’t like how this turned out and decided to add more sparkle to it. I dabbed Versamark on top of my symbol and added  Heat & Stick powder. I melt the powder with Heat Tool, covered it in gold glitter and heat set my piece again. I love how this turned out. Sentiment comes from Rose Wonder stamp set, one of my favourites from Spring Summer catalogue.

To close my card I created a belly-band. Same as with a card front I added that rough gold edge. I stamped small butterfly from Butterfly Basics, heat embossed it in gold and die-cut it. I also die-cut the more intricate butterfly from gold glimmer paper. I adhered them together, added some gold Metallic Thread underneath and attached it to my belly-band.

And that’s it. That’s my Shadowhunters birthday card. Do you like it? I have to say that my daughter truly loved it. And the moment she opened the card and saw the Angelic Rune symbol – well, that was priceless to see how her eyes light up. Mission completed 🙂
