This easy birthday card was made for a swap at Art for the Creative Mind. We were told to use lace in some way.
The top picture shows the card opened up to its fullest extent.
The lower picture shows the card standing upright, on its “easel”.
Since we were to use lace, I decided to do something a little different. I used a piece of lace to create glitter masking.
- Create the shape you want from cardstock, then cover it with double sided sticky tape.
- Put a piece of lace over the entire surface.
- Sprinkle one colour of microfine glitter over the project. Shake off excess.
- Remove lace and sprinkle project with second colour glitter. Shake off excess.
I made the card from dark blue card stock, then used a lighter blue to add a second layer. I dry embossed the light blue layer using a Cuttlebug Birthday Folder and the Big Shot.
I decided to let the glove extend over the end of the card, just to be different.
The sentiment is computer generated. The text box reads, “You and birthday cake fit together like a hand in a glove.” The words on the end of the glove read, “Happy Birthday.”
I gave the glove a rhinestone meant to represent a ring.
