Good Morning my paper loving friends! Today I have a couple of things to share with you. I have a birthday card filled with lots of embellishment and something on a more personal note.
This is a card I made for my niece for her 18th birthday!
(sorry for the bad lighting, it's been gloomy around here)
For the easel card base I use a pre-made card from Jinger Adams Designs.
I made some changes to the pre-made rosette. It came with a brad, but wanted a button instead. So next time you reach for your embellishments, you may just want to customize them!
The butterflies are made from wood, I colored them with copics, then used glossy accents to make them shine! The "h and b" were cut two times, once in chipboard and then in paper. Added some more glossy accents. I'm really in a glossy accents kind of mood! :) Lastly I attached them to washi tape banners.
This card is more than a birthday card...it was a "keep my mind off things card". Sometimes with the new year come changes, some small and some big. Well that's what happened to me this weekend! You see very early Saturday morning, my husband and I took our youngest daughter to the airport so she could go to college...2400 miles away! She only got accepted this past Wednesday and was on a plane 3 days later. It took me about 3 hours to make this card, I never spend that much time on a card. This day of crafting was about the process and not about the product!
In between crying and hugging we took a few pictures at the airport. She told me I couldn't post them on Facebook, however she never mentioned my blog!
I told her she didnt' have to go but she was determined! She wanted to make sure that when she landed in Nashville, that everyone knew she was a 49er fan and not a Titans fan! lol!
Thank you for indulging me with some family pictures!
