On Your Special Day 2

Hello my crafting buddies, hope today finds you all well? Today I am showing you the replacement card I made for my supervisor, if you don't remember the first one that I made and posted on Monday, but was not happy with, you can view it here.

I have changed it slightly, instead of having three strips laid on top I have kept it to one piece and rather than die cut the striplet and placing it on top either side I have cut it out of the top layer that I embossed instead, placed double sided adhesive sheet on the back and put diamond snow over the top to make it sparkle a little, though sadly the photo does not show just how much it did sparkle!

I used the Austrian Collection Salzburg on top of the card. I stamped my sentiment with Archival Ink and die cut with the Austrian Corner, Boarder & Tag and placed this across the center of the Salzburg die cut.

I added a bow made out of the same ribbon as before and to finish the card I added four sparkly gems in each corner.

I do prefer this one to the previous and everyone at work seemed to like it so that was a bonus.

  12. Good morning Jacqui,
    What a lovely card you have made today, I had a quick look back through some of your cards and you are clearly one very talented lady, it's so amazing to see how differently everyone uses the same products.
    You can't go wrong with Creative Expressions though, all of their products are fab.
