First, I want to apologize for being MIA lately. :) Been kinda busy lately. Last week was my sister Angie's Birthday (over at My Paper Productions). I wanted to make something special for her, and this is what I came up with. This is honestly one of my absolute favorite cards that I have ever made! I'm super happy with how it turned out.
I saw this Honeysuckle colored rose ribbon, and immediately knew I wanted to use it on her card. I saw the ribbon up against the vintage olive green and white striped paper, and knew it was a match! I cut the slanted edge on the top of the card with the Friskars slicer. I cut the chandelier from the Summer in Paris cart, using a gold glitter K&Co. paper. I used an old gold chain from some costume jewelry that I was planning on getting rid of, to make it seem as though the chandelier was hanging.
I cut a corner of the Honeysuckle paper and used an Inkadinkado "Happy Birthday!" clear stamp, mounted it onto a piece of the glitter paper, and used two olive green adhesive gemstones on either side of the sentiment.
On the inside of the card, I typed and printed from my computer the sentiment which says, "Every year, you continue to make each of our lives brighter! I am and always will be ever so thankful for you! Happy Birthday!"
At the bottom of the page I decided to mimic the cut of the card with angled pieces of paper, to reinforce the design of the front, and once again I used the gold chain.
By no means am I trying to "talk myself up", but I am in love with this card!!!
