Another Gorjuss Girl card today, I have had these toppers and papers for months and months and I have just recently found the box with them in whilst looking for something the teenagers!
I tried to pick colours from the topper, some I went with beige/coffee colours.
I went for the 8x8 card base in white, matt and layered with some coffee coloured card and then a piece of coordinating patterned paper from my stash. I slightly distressed the edges of the paper with scissors, roughening up the fibres so that they take the ink better, I then used an ink duster
to add the Tea Dye Distress ink to the edges. I used a Martha Stewart Punch to make a decorative strip border across the card and topped it with some Creative Expressions Ribbon.
I used a Cheery Lynn Fancilful Flourish Die and a selection of paper roses and some little fancy bits from Anna Marie Designs website.
I used the same paper on the inside of the card and stamped 'happy birthday' onto another A2 Ribbon threader Die cut and mounted that in the middle.
An unusual colour combo for me but I think I like it.
I have left a space on the front of the card to add a sentiment or personalisation.
My husband takes the photos and I think he is taking some tips from Sue Wilson with these close ups!
Thanks for stopping by,
