A quick post this evening to share this card:
It's my nephew's 40th birthday next month so I needed to create a suitable card. To say I was struggling to come up with an idea is an understatement - I went on the hunt for inspiration! I watched a video with Jennifer McGuire creating faux metal card with perfect pearls - I liked the effect so thought I would have a go.
I took a small panel of card and blended three distress inks across the whole of the panel and then brushed over it with perfect pearls. Finally I "polished" the panel then die cut the number 40 before embossing the panel using a number embossing folder. I cut 4 or 5 additional number 40s before stacking and gluing them together. Added a sentiment and that was that!!
Distress Inks - Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire
Perfect Pearls - Perfect Pearls
Numbers Embossing Folder - Cuttlebug
Clearly Besotted Geometric Style Stamp set for the sentiment.
