A friend asked me to create a couple of Birthday cards for her sister and I thought I would share them with you.
This first one is from my friend to her sister. I used a brown cardstock for the base of the card. The image is from Altered Pages and I have matted that with a piece of orange cardstock to which I added a bit of Distressed Ink and I distressed the edges just for some added dimension to the card. The Happy Birthday ribbon came from Really Reasonable Ribbon and then I added a sheer brown with white dots ribbon to the left side. The crystals were clear and I added some Alcohol Inks to them to create a multi colored design.
The second card is for my friends Mom to give to her daughter. This was a fun card as I got to use my new Cuttlebug, oh I really do like this little machine!! The background is a light teal and to that I have added a rose color ribbon and on top of that I added a tiny brown with blue stitching to create a new layered ribbon. The stamp I used is by Tim Holtz and can be seen here, just scroll down the page a bit. I stamped it with Black Staz-On ink on to Watercolor paper then I added a bit of color using Twinkling H2O's. I matted this on a piece of brown Sandable paper that has a peachy rosey color on the reverse side and it can be seen on QVC. I ran this through the Cuttlebug and then sanded the raised images so the color would show through. I have to say this paper is such fun to work with. To this I added a few buttons and a silver butterfly, I added some Alcohol Ink to this for just a little touch of color.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope your inspired to go create something wonderful!!
