Happy Birthday, Mom!


Today's my Mom's birthday and I sent her this card - happy birthday, Mom! I loved the way the card turned out.

To make the background, I sprayed a Spellbinder's Impressabilities template with glimmer mist and then used it to emboss a piece of white cardstock. Actually, I just used up the glimmer mist that was already on my Impressabilities template from making THIS card.  I cheated a bit, by spraying more of the glimmer mist on my craft sheet and using my Aqua painter to deepen the color in spots. Using a straight edge and Sharpie marker, I made a narrow border around the edge (even in person it looks like I matted it!)

The butterfly was made from a piece of glossy cardstock I'd colored with alcohol inks.  I stamped the butterfly image and embossed it with fine black embossing powder.

The sentiment was stamped on glimmer paper with StazOn ink and then cut and embossed with a Spellbinder's die.
