Cards this week


Simon Says- Happy Birthday

Crafty Creation Challenges- Anything Goes 

I tried something new, namely gold flakes and bronze foil. I needed a birthday card for my bro-in-law so I took some brown cardstock, placed double sided tape diagonally in 2 different widths. I took the foil sheet on the one tape I took off and pressed it onto the tape and it adhered magically. For the wider tape, I used the gold flakes which I gently placed down and rubbed it with the excess falling away. I made sure not to sneeze. I took a die cut and cut the shape with my sizzex machine with a lighter brown, probably called kraft colour. I also used the sizzex machine to cut the birthday greeting from a shiny gold paper. For the edging, I tried this glue that, when tacky, will make the gold flakes adhere, I need to work on that one. I edged it with bronze glitter pen placed it on top of the card with pop up dots and added the 2 gems. 

Fairy & The Unicorn- Anything Goes 

Stamping Sensations- Fantasy & Magical

Winter Wonderland- Peace on Earth

Christmas Card Throwdown- Silver & White

Cute Card Thursday-Wings

Addicted To Stamps - Christmas 

Christmas Crafts All Year Round-Something that begins with G &/or H-G for Glitter

I loved making this card because I love Angels. To me they are magical, peaceful...well except when killing dragons, and seem beautiful. I stamped the image on white pearl paper and embossed with silver powder, coloured in her face etc.. with flesh tone marker and proceeded to glitter her up in different white glitters I have plus silver. I also used a pearl paint on parts of her dress too. I had the silver paper, which I mounted on pearl white paper and used pop up dots to put my angel on. To finish it off, I took star stickers and placed them all around the card. 

Don't we all need an angel in our life?

  4. Hi, Birgit!

    I'm sure your BIL will appreciate and keep forever that striking gold and bronze birthday card. The shiny, gem studded creation is indeed unique and reflects all the TLC that went into making it.

    Yessum, we could all use a lucky star and a guardian angel, and your second card featuring an elegant angel rendered in shades of white and silver, is equally eye-pleasing. The card would work at Christmas or anytime of the year you wish to touch someone'e heart and show that you care.

    Thanks for showing us your latest card creations, dear friend BB, and have a wonderful week!
