My Daughters Birthday

This is a bit different from the cards I usually make but this is a Birthday card for my Daughter and it suits her to a tee. I must apologise for the photograph; I forgot to take any before I gave her the card so she has taken these for me.

The card itself I made from Black Pearl embossed card from Inspire Me Papers and the image is from Kenny K. I coloured the image with Promarkers and mounted it on red silk card from my stash. The flowers are made from thin metal which I bought already coloured, again it is from my stash and I can not remember where I bought it. I cut the metal using a Sizzix die (Tattered Florals'' by Tim Holtz) in my Big Shot machine. I curled the petals using a styling tool and I used a gem brad in the center to hold the layers together and add some extra bling. The bow is made from some black taffeta ribbon I had in my stash and another gem brad held it to the card and I put the sentiment on the tails of the bow just to be different.

I was pleased with the way this card turned out and my daughter loved it so mission accomplished.


  1. I love that card, very cool

  2. Ohh..that is a cute card Elaina. I love the image and the colouring is fab. *Ü* I think we need to have a blinkie on our side bar which says 'I love Clinique'! LOL. Where in South London did you grow up? TFS. ~Glen~
