So it was mine and my Sister's birthday last week, and as such I made her a card that I thought I would share with you all:
It is an 8x8 square card and I ended up incorporating lots of different elements like I have been playing around with recently! I started by just matting a piece of silver mirror board onto the base of the card! Then I cut a 5x7 piece of purple card and debossed it using the cupcake folder for the Cuttlebug all-in-one, inking the raised side and then embossing with some clear embossing powder!
Then I used my Spellbinders Nesties Scalloped Circles to cut out 2 circles one in silver mirror card and one out of pearl white! Before cutting the smaller circle I first printed out my sentiment from the computer and foiled with my foiling machine (completely in love) and added some inking round the edges.
In recent weeks I have also been attempting some wire writing, and although there is still a long way to go I thought this was fairly legible so I attached it to a large bow I had made with some pretty sparkly ribbon!
I also made my own little 'hat pins' using some head pins and swarovski crystals just for that little added bit of bling.
And of course my current favourite dies! I added some corners and a border strip using my Parisian Accents!
Quite a grown up card, but with a subtle bit of fun in the cupcakes - I hope :-)!
