I have had so much fun with the new Sparkle N Sprinkle Birthday Friends set. It is so perfect to add a little fun to birthday cards for those of us getting up in age.
I used the image of these sweet little ladies, along with Spellbinders Circle Nestabilities to create this birthday card. I started with layers of pink and yellow. The pink layer was run through an embossing folder and Versamark Ink was rubbed across the embossing to bring out the design. I added strips of 3/4" "Tear-ific" Tape both vertically and horizontally before layering this on my white card base. After removing the protective layer, I added Flirt Glitter.
I used three different images and cut out the various parts using three different size circle dies. After coloring these, I layered them on slightly larger circles, die cut from sticker paper. The remaining exposed adhesive was covered with Teal Velveteen Velvet Glitter. Dimensionals were used to pop these up on the card front.
The lovely bow at the top was created with 3/4" "Tear-ific" Tape and Flirt glitter. See the technique here in the SNS Tips and Techniques.
Thought I would also share this little tidbit – rumor has it that the elderly lady on the right in this image is named Eunice. Guess what the “E” stand for in E. Marie?
Thanks for stopping by.
