This is Donna's BD card for this year. The picture is from Stampscapes and is four stamps combined to make the picture. It is colored with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. The surrounding paper is gold glitter paper and is not this many colors but is very irridescent. Happy Birthday, Donna and I hope you like the card!
This is a card for Marc's boss for Boss's Day 2011. The girls at the office asked him if I could make a card for them and this is what I came up with. The surround is made from a cut file from Monica's Creations and she has such elaborate designs! This one is sized to fit on a card made from an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper folded in half. The glitter surround is made from coredinations white glitter paper so I didn't have to add glitter for sparkle.
This is Stephanie's BD card for this year. The ironwork surround was made using a cut file from Monica's Creations. I put glitter on the cut after I glued it to the top of an 8x8 square card. The picture is In The Moonlight by Elizabeth O. Dulemba from JustRite Stampers. There is glitter on the winds and I love this little stamp. Unfortunately the color of the moon or the pale blue sky doesn't show up and neither does the sparkle. Stephanie was very pleased with the card, and that is all that really matters!
This is Shanna's BD card for her birthday tomorrow. I made the surround with a cut file from Monica's Creations with my Cricut. I stretched the design out to make it an oval and I really hated to put the picture in the center because the center looks like a delicate doily. Monica has some beautiful cut files to download on her site and they are all intricate like this one. I cut the white surround with scissors and the yellow background is just there to show up the design and not really part of the card design at all.
