Today is my eldest son, David’s birthday. David is an amazing young man. He bright and handsome and one of the most generous people I know. He will do anything for anyone. He is a police officer and I am so proud of him.
This is another card we made at our monthly stamp club. We used the Pattern Party Decorative Masks and the Shimmery White Embossing Paste. This paste has so much sparkle yet it is subtle and so pretty when it hits the lights.
To make this card I first adhered a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Whisper White cardstock to my Silicone Craft sheet using Washi Tape. I then layered the brick wall Mask over the top of the cardstock and adhered that down with some Washi Tape too. I mixed a drop or two of Coastal Cabana Ink with the Shimmery White Embossing Paste and stirred it using a Palette Knife. Then you just spread it over the Mask. After it dries, which does not take a very long time, I cut it down to 3 3/4″ x 5″. That way if you missed any Embossing Paste along the edges it is ok because you cut them off anyway.
Here is another picture showing the sparkle a little better.
I cut the two balloons out using the Balloon Bouquet Punch and the Brights 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper. I had to adhere the balloons with Multipurpose Glue because Snail would not stick on the Embossing Paste. I cut the sentiment out using the Celebrate You dies (which are retiring at the end of this current catalog) with Gorgeous Grape yardsticks and then added the Silver and Whisper White Baker’s Twine.
Happy birthday, David!
I love this card! The mask is perfect and the colors are so happy. Great card, Susan – and happy birthday to David!
Such a bright, cheerful card – perfect for a birthday! The raised embossed background is awesome 🙂
