I haven’t made a glittery card in a while, and the other day I decided it was time to get out the stickers, Scor Tape, Copic markers, and the glitter, and get busy.
The wonky cake is an Elizabeth Craft Designs Peel Off which I glittered up with some Cool Highlight Glitter Ritz, colored with Copic markers and trimmed out. The border punch is from Tonic Studios, the Simplicity Pattern Daisy Border Punch. These punches are such a pleasure to use. I used a heavier paper for the border because it was the blackest black that I had, and I had no trouble at all with the punch.
I added some pink and yellow polka dotted patterned papers, and the Happy Birthday is an old, old Hero Arts stamp, backed with a scalloped circle punch. Easy as pie. Wait, who came up with that expression? Pie may be easy for some, but it’s always been a challenge for me. Especially the crust, you don’t want to eat a pie crust I have made from scratch. There’s a talent to that, and I don’t have it, I’m afraid. Anyway, never mind about all that. This card was pretty easy to do, not like pie at all.
This one goes into my stash of birthday cards. I like to keep several on hand so I don’t have to get in a mad stamping frenzy at the last minute. My mind usually turns to mush on those occasions and all I end up making is a huge mess. And the birthday card ends up being late. Not good, not good at all. This way is much better.
