Happy Birthday

Good Sunday morning all!  How about a bold, but glitzy birthday card!  I started with my pixie powders, Aubergine Dream and Plum Twist.  I applied the powders liberally, spritzed water, then used Cling film scrunched up over it and allowed it to dry overnight.  The cling film grabs the mica and you can see all the interesting patterns it makes.  I cut it with the Double Stitched Rectangles, then added a multi layered white frame around it.  I added the frame to a larger piece of white card that I covered with a sticky adhesive sheet.  I coated around the edges with Iced Snow (for the glitzy part) and left the centre and added my rectangle pixied frame.  I used a bit of the leftover pixie card and cut the Cosmos Flowers out of it.  I added white overlay outlines to them, then assembled the flowers.  I added the flowers in opposite corners and used the Lace Edged Leaves cut in white as accents.  I cut the Bold Happy Birthday in white and added a black shadow to it then glued it in the centre of the frame.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.   The finished dimensions are 7"  x  8 1/2" in size.    All for now,
Sue x

Ohh my word this is absolutely gorgeous I love the colours you've used and there's those lovely tell tale cling film patterns. I'd get so dizzy if I received a card like this and it would be mounted in a frame after a month or so of being free standing lol. There are times I make the odd card that make me smile but hand on heart Sue, the nicest have been CAS with your Noble Expression it needs very little else to make a beautiful card so thank you for helping us make the nicest CAS or otherwise with these dies.

STAY SAFE AND SENSIBLE KEEP CARING KEEP CRAFTING ❤ xxx

Morning Sue,
We all need a little bit of glitz especially on a day like today as it's raining here in the N.E. But, let's not get too down as it's good for the gardens, or so they say!
Gorgeous coloured background draws your eye into the card. Love it, Sue. Thank you.
Hugs xxx Pauline

Hi Sue
Gorgeous card, love the pixie powder background but I’m ashamed to say that I still haven’t tried the cling film technique. The bold noble Happy Birthday Die must be the most used Die in my collection, I do love it

Love and hugs to everyone
Pat

Suzzette Yandle said...

A stunning glitzy card design. Makes me want to play with pixies today. The Aubergine Dream and Plum Twist mix well together. And ofcourse I love purples. Your Laced Edged Leaves are one of my favorite leaves. Thanks for the inspiration. I hope I remember to put my gloves on before playing with the pixies. I am a messy crafter when it comes to pixies. LOL

Tressa said...

Beautiful example. Love the colour choice and design.

Beautiful card.

Eunice Astle said...

This is a beautiful card Sue, love the pixie powders and the sparkly glitter on the background!

CCM said...

Beautiful card.I have this bold sentiment and all I can say is: if you don't have it ,buy it. It is so easy to make a card in no time using this sentiment. And if you use pixie powders to create unique backgrounds,the success is guaranteed.

Hugs from Toronto to you all.
Stay safe and healthy.
