The big two

Hello there,

How nice of you to stop by. In this post I want to share a card I made for the daughter of a dear friend of mine. Hannah turned two and I decided to make a shabby chic themed card for her.

I started with a piece of white card stock and stamped some swirls on it with embossing ink. I heat embossed it with old pink embossing powder, rose quarts antiquities by ranger to be exact. I then inked it all with blue distress ink and as the embossing powder works as a resist, the contrast is nice. I cut out all the  images and inked the edges to give it a vintage look. The number is one of Tim Holtz's numerals and I covered it in several coats of different colour paints and let them dry a bit and then rubbed the wet paint off. After it dried I covered it with glossy accents. I glued everything on the piece of card stock and added a few die cut leaf branches and little die cut feather I coloured with wink of stella markers and distress markers. I added ribbon and a fluffy bow and finished it with three tiny roses and glued it to a card blank.

I can't wait to hear the feedback once the card arrives. That is always the best part of sending hand made projects....

Take care and until next time.
