Happy Birthday Nicole!

One of my daughter’s good friends (I like her a lot too) is celebrating her 30th birthday today. My daughter wanted me to make her a card since Nicole loves my cards and really looks forward to getting them every year. Rachael always leaves the creativity to me but this year she told me what she wanted the card to say.  Below is the design I created.

I used the amazing Virtual Pearl Iridescent paper.  I love the Virtual Pearl since it changes colors when the card is moved.  This effect  really makes you want to look at the card over and over again.  I stamped the image with Versamark and then brushed Copper Pearl Ex over the versacraft which really was stunning IRL.  The little mat was cut using a spellbinder die and colored the raised area with copper metallic rub on.

The inside wording was printed using a computer on a sheet of text weight virtual pearl iridescent.  I used a laser printer to print the saying.  If I had used an ink jet printer I would be able to quickly pour embossing powder on the saying and then heat embossed it for an embossed finish!  I love using that technique too!

I embossed the design around the statement using a brass stencil that I recently purchased (AND LOVE). Then used the Copper metallic rub on to bring out the embossed area and attached the virtual pearl iridescent text weight to the base of the card.











I just couldn’t stop there so went crazy embellishing the envelope (guess what paper I used for it LOL!!).  I had to use my new Spellbinders Fancy Tags since I just received them that morning.  I have to tell you I am in love with Fancy Tags 2 and 3, bought them both. Added a couple of flowers, used copper sparkle embossing powder, sealed it and off it went!!  Nicole loved it!  From what I heard that had plenty of wine that weekend too, oh to be young again!!
