A Little Birthday Wish.

You may recognise this card from when you visited the shop.  Jo made it for Toni when it was her birthday in April. She featured it on the Couture Creations blog along with some instructions.

I love when I get to make cards for people that really appreciate the effort that goes into it..  The card I have to share today is for a special lady who is celebrating a special birthday.  Lots of layering in this card.

To start I have used the beautiful papers from the Damask Delight paper pads.  I love this stripe paper.  Reminds me of liquorice allsorts!

I matted both sheets of paper onto some black cardstock.  Before I stuck them onto each other I tucked a doily underneath.  The die I have used is called Mirror Mirror and is from the Madeline collection.  I have only used half.  Don't throw the other half out, you can use it on another project at a late date.

The long lace strip that runs along the card is from the Chandeliers set from the Momento collection.  This is a long strip but can quite easily cut down for cards.

Once that strip is in place I then used both the oval and scallop oval nesting dies.  I have stamped my sentiment in the top corner . 

I cut two hearts from my hearts nesting dies with chipboard and covered them with some paper again from the Damask Delight paper pads.  I added some flowers and also some pretty self adhesive pearls

Thanks for stopping by, until next time
