Birthday Card

Hi there,

In my previous post I showed you my first 'Tilda' card which was an entry in the 'Magnolia Down Under Challenge'.
I used a panel of embossed metallic bronze card on that card and as I had another piece left, I decided to emboss that too and use it in a special card for my Mother-In-Law's Birthday.

I mounted this piece on some SU Close to Cocoa card which had been punched along the edges with my SU Scallop Border punch. Then I attached a piece of cream/gold ribbon to the side. and mounted the whole piece onto SU Very Vanilla base card.

I added some lovely cream flowers and some pearls then rounded the corners of the card and used my Gold Leaf pen to 'ink up' the sides of the card to finish it off.

For the greeting I used an acrylic sticker which was a perfect match to all the other elements.

SU Supplies:

Cardstock - Very Vanilla, Close to Cocoa

Other supplies:

Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - Leafy Branch

Kaisercraft - Self Adhesive Pearls

Cream Flowers

Cream/Gold ribbon

Acrylic sticker

Well, thanks for stopping by - I have another two cards to show you in my next post.

Come back tomorrow to have a look at them - they are my latest entries for this week's Challenges.

'Bye for now.
