Metallic Birthdays – Shimmer & Celebrate

Hi everyone and a very happy Mother’s Day to you all.  Whether you are a mother, a mother-to-be or just want to celebrate the joy of YOUR mother, I wish you well on this special day that we celebrate MOM.

My card today doesn’t have anything to do with Mother’s Day, but it does have to do with another special day…BIRTHDAYS!  Each year we make and send numerous cards to friends and family, co-workers and teachers…they all deserve the very best from us, and what better way to show them how much you care, than by creating a card for them made from the very best cardstock!

This birthday card is a 4″ X 8″ base, which will easily fit into a business size envelope.  I wanted to use some of my Mica Metallics for a couple of reasons; it’s festive with it’s shimmery look which is perfect for the festive feel of a birthday card, and because Patricia has the entire Mica Metallic line at 25% off the entire month of May!  Awesome, huh? Her Metallic line comes in text weight perfect for layering or envelope liners and cardstock weight, just right for card bases and other 3D projects.

I did lots of paper piecing and paper piercing (read carefully…lol)  After cutting a peek-a-book square into my card front, I created the scallop frame for the front of the card as well as for the interior view.

From this shot you can really see the shimmer that this great cardstock has and the recipient will be so pleased that you went to the trouble to give them the very best.

Have a splendid day!
