Birthday Wishes

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Great Fubu Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design.

I made the three panels using Sue's Scribble PVA Technique with Cosmic Shimmer PVA in Silver Sparkle, Pastel Blue and Cosmic Pearl. Once dry, I matted them onto Vintage Silver Card.

I stamped the Sunflower Delight Stamp using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Silver Shine Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Classic Squares. I cut a Spellbinders Ornate Squares Die out of Vintage Silver Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the All Occasions Sentiments Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Silver Shine Detail Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Classic Squares and cut another Spellbinders Ornate Squares Die out of Vintage Silver Card.

I added a dragonfly using the Couture Creations Dragonfly Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding some White Pearls to the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Cosmic Pearl around the edges.

Just a reminder that my Amazon Store is still open - it won't close till 26th September. Lots of lovely stamps, etc still for sale. Click on the link in the top menu to go there or whenever you see highlighted text within a post to go straight to that particular item.

Thanks for stopping by.

  26. I have only ever done random patterns with the PVA glue but the lattice design works well over a couple of random squiggles.
