Time to make cards for the Giggler's October birthday's!. This month there are 2 birthdays & I decided to make Tina's birthday card first. Tina had shown me a few cards she made from sketches she found on pinterest so I decided to check them out. I found this card sketch by Yolande (I think) & fell in love with all the layers.
The top two layers were cut in SU DSP Autumn Vines & SU Really Rust using one of my favorite dies, Spellbinders Pierced Rectangles. There are 6 dies in the set. I used 4 of the largest dies, nesting 2 together the outside die will cut & the inside die will pierce. They don't fit tight together so there is a small gap. Once they were in position I held them in place using Masquerade Art Masking Tape. I love this tape because it's low tack & doesn't leave any residue. Once those 2 layers were adhered together I added a 4" paper doily & trimmed it at the edge. I then added the 2 1/2 X 1 1/2 banner which was cut from the same DSP.
The IO open scroll leaf die is cut from SU Sage Shadow & adhered using a glue pen. For a little bling, I added peel off silver glitter stickers to the leafy scroll.
Instead of a ribbon, I cut the Elizabeth Craft Jewels Die Set from SU Sage Shadow. There are 3 dies in this set & they are so cool. This one has a small curve & I cut it in half so it doesn't go all the way under the tag. It needed a little more bling so more peel off silver glitter stickers were just the ticket!
Coffee Archival Ink. I also added a brad then used dimensionals to pop the tag up. A small key added a finishing touch! Then the card front was added to the SU Chocolate Chip base which is a standard A2 card.
Hope you enjoyed my project & I'm sure Tina will too!
Many years ago, my sister (-in-law), Judy, Retired2stamp, invited me to a Stampin' Up Party. I was drawn to the 6X6 recipe card swap our local group was doing and had wanted to scrapbook too. I wasn't really interested in card making because I had witnessed my brother (in-law) Ed fold up a handmade card and put it in his pocket. I almost fainted and I didn't even make the card. But after a few parties, I was hooked and now make more cards than I had ever thought I would. My most recent passions are ATCs, tags & altered art. As you look through my blog I hope you can see how I've grown in my crafting ability!
