I spent most of last Sunday crafting, I set myself up in my lounge surrounded myself with stamp and paper and ink, and began to craft away….. I sat there for 6 hours and made a bunch of cards. I love bulk crafting like that, just being able to sit down and craft away. Anyway, after I had packed up and put everything back in its proper place, James got home and said ‘I need two cards before Tuesday’ well, I wasn’t going to have time on Monday to make anything, which meant that I needed to make 2 cards… now!
James’ Granny and his brother share their birthday (and I had completely forgotten about them!), so 2 birthday cards were needed, ASAP. I’ll share Josh’s card on Tuesday next week, but this one is the card I made for Granny. I say card, but really I made 3, stamping wasn’t my friend! My original plan was for a sort of one layer card, with the sentiment stamped and masked, and then the medallions from Frosted Medallions stamped around the outside, but I just couldn’t get the stamping right, so instead I added the sentiment stamped on a die cut. No one will ever know that there is some seriously messy stamping underneath the Happy Birthday (well, they wouldn’t if I hadn’t told you!)
The Happy Birthday is taken from the Tin of Cards stamp set, and is stamped in Rich Razzleberry. I’m sure you will have noticed my current obsession with the Layering Circles framelits, but I just cannot get enough of these, they are just the most perfect way of adding a sentiment.
This card is finished with a sprinkling of sequins taken from Blushing Bride sequin trim and a bow of Rich Razzleberry ribbon.
