It's about to be that time of year again. My other SIL is about to celebrate her anniversary and I need to make her a card. So...I'll post the card I made for her last year. (I know, blogging hasn't been a priority lately, but hoping to change that.)
Back to the card....
It's been a year since I made this card, so I'll try to remember what I did. I know I used SU leaf stamp and coordinating Sizzix die, woodgrain embossing folder and a piece of burlap. The background was created from leftover Distress Ink on my craft surface. I just used paper to mop up the ink and then sprayed it with gold Glimmer Mist.
I wish I could pick up the sparkle, but at least you can see the texture.
I'm finally an aunt!! My brand new niece was born 9/13 and I wanted to make an extra special card just for her. I found inspiration in "100 Fresh and Fun Handmade Cards" by Kimber McGray. I used the New Arrival cartridge for the image cuts. I inked edges and used the Wink of Stella clear pen (love this!!) to add some sparkle. (Unfortunately, this didn't show up in the photo.)
For the inside: This is the real WOW factor. Each image is inked and stickled and suspended from the pop out with invisible thread.
