2013-11-19 Belated Happy Birthday

2013/11/19

A belated happy birthday greeting to my friend Maggi!

Here is the fall colored card that I made for her; she will get it tonight at the Shoebox craft night. I am pretty sure she won’t see this, as I know she will be getting ready for me to come over and play with the ladies tonight.

I started out with a manilla file folder cut down to a mat size; added distress stains and then dried it. Next I stamped a large background (Stampin Up’s Fine Lace) in watermark ink and embossed in gold.

Next I created the border and medallion. Maggi gave ma a circle punch which I used for not only the border, but also the focal image. I was able to find another Spellbinder die that went along with it nicely (Fleur De Lis Accents) and made a rust layer.

Take a look in the background and you will see I used the same punch and created a border. The sparkle you can see on the border piece is actually mini marbles and champagne gold glitter (stuck down with some red line tape).

The sentiment is by Stampin’ Up from the set Riveting.
