Birthday Wishes

Hi Bloggers.

I'm back from Hayling Island. We had a great time - exhausting but great. We met some lovely crafters and had some really kind comments about our workshop which makes it all worthwhile. Really sorry, I have no photos as I forgot to take my camera. I'm sure there will be some floating around on the internet already!

Here is today's card. Unfortunately, it never made it to the demo table as we ran out of time when I did the recent Spellbinders shows.

I have made a similar card to this before in this post but I've changed the colours and added some more layers.

I embossed a square piece of white card with the Spellbinders Elite M-Bossabilities Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the pattern. I cut 2 large motifs from the Persian Motifs set - 1 out of grey card and 1 out of yellow card. I matted the yellow one on top of the grey one turning it slightly.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Beautiful Wishes Stamp Set on to yellow card using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using a die from the Persian Accents die set. I cut another of the same accent pieces out of grey card. I mounted the yellow piece with the sentiment on top of the grey piece, again turning it slightly. I mounted these two pieces on top of the first two using 3D foam.

I cut 2 small accent pieces from the Persian Accents set out of yellow card and 2 out of grey. I used these as corners, adding a pearl gem in the middle.

I tied a bow from 2 lengths of Nickle Mist Vintage Ribbon. I cut another small accent piece from the Persian Accents set and popped it in the centre of the bow. I threaded a yellow button from my stash with some Baker's Twine from the Primary Set and popped it on top of the accent piece.

Hope you like this simple layout which can be adapted for many occasions.

Pop back later to find out who has won the card from Friday's post.

Thanks for stopping by.
