On Your Special Day

Hi there my crafting friends, sorry for the late post today, still better late than never right? As some of you may remember I had been accepted on the DT for a new crafty blog that is starting up in January called   this past week they have been introducing us DT members, one each day so you get used to us all and view some of our creations, I was introduced on Friday, if you click on the link it will take you straight to the blog where you can meet us all, not long to go till the first challenge (Jan 4th) so I do hope you come and join us, every week is Anything Goes so its open to anything crafty.

Now onto todays post, a card I made for my Line manager who is 30 this coming week, however, I did not like the finished look so I plan to re do this later today lol! It will be similar but hopefully better!

I started with my Blush card as a base layered up with White card. The second layer of Blush card I embossed and cut into three strips, placing two on either side and one in the middle raised up with foam tape.

I cut two striplets out of White card and placed these either side of the card and placed a gem on each section down the middle of the striplet.

Out of Blush & White card I die cut using the Austrian Collection Salzburg, Innsbruck & Corner, Boarder & Tag, I stamped my sentiment on to the Tag and layered these up as seen.

Underneath these I added a bow made out of Organza ribbon.

There you have the finished card, I will show you the actual one I will be giving her later in the week.
