Yes, two posts in one day. I'm in between projects and thought I'd post another one. This is a birthday card I made for our sweet daughter who turned 25 last month. My how time flies! I'm sure I don't feel 25 years older!
I really had fun creating this card. I struggle with the details so many times when I am starting to design a card. I had asked my daughter what her current favorite color is. She said blue, and light blue! With that information, I chose the papers I wanted to use first before thinking about anything else. It did seem to make the process go more smoothly. I will try choosing paper first next time to see if it was a fluke, or not!
All of the papers are from a pack from Authentique. The collection is called Original. I used one of Spellbinders 3-D embossing folders called Framed Labels 18. I carefully put VersaMark ink onto the debossed side of the folder, added the paper and ran it through my Grand Caliber. I sprinkled on white embossing powder and used a brush to remove a little bit here and there. After I heat embossed it, I cut off the bottom section of the embossed piece.
The flower is Create A Daisy, also from Spellbinders, and the butterfly is a stamp with matching die from Our Daily Bread. I love bling and always try to get it onto any project I can! These pearls from Want2Scrap were perfect!
I hope you like my card. Please say hello in my comment section--would love to know if anyone is seeing my blog. Thanks and have a wonderful week!
