I apologise now for the title unfortunately it just popped into my head and I couldn't let it go!!!
I hope you are all well on this Saturday evening. Thought I would show you a birthday card I have made. Its very pink, sparkly and girly. I made it using a Glitter Girls embossing board called "open hearts and tall stories". When I first started cardmaking (a couple of years ago now) this is really where I began with embossing boards until, of course, rubber stamping took over completely, so I thought I would have a go at combining the two for a change.
This is how the card looks face on.
This is sort of a top view so you can see how it stands. I have made it double layered, you don't have to but I like the fact that I can just decorate the front and the back layer is where you can write and that it also makes it stand on its own otherwise you have to make a sort of stand for it.
Just another shot from a different angle.
This is back layer on the left side.
This is the back layer on the right where a message can be written.
There is quite a bit of bling on this card (not sure if it shows too well in the piccies). All around the edges has been glittered with Martha Stewart glitter. Lots of pearls and gems from stash. A bit of a flower frenzy going on (all from WOC) but I thought hey the glitter has come out so there's no point in holding back now. This is one of my new maggies I bought with some of my birthday money and I think she is going to be one of my all time faves.
I would like to enter into some challenges whilst I'm on here:-
Sorry for the photo heavy post. Thanks for staying to the end of my waffle. Off now to make myself a hot choccy and settle down to some colouring.
Take care wherever you are and happy crafting.
