‘Big Day’ Birthday Card

Hi folks,

I hope that you are having some fun and crafty times 🙂

Todays share is a super sparkly creation that I have made using ‘left overs’ from other projects. I have kept it simple using complimentary colours and layers:


I started by using a light blue card for a base; This was made from half a sheet of A4 card the other half was used for a different project. I had strips and panels collected from cards that I had made over Christmas and put them to good use here.

I then stamped the image with a coordinating ink – both the ink and the card base are by Stampin’ Up! in the colour Soft Sky – as the ink stays wet for a short while, I was able to add clear embossing powder to it. It gives it nice dimension and adds extra detail:


I coloured in the word ‘CAKE’ with a clear Wink of Stella glitter pen. You could always use mica powders or a glitter glue pen instead.


In the above photo you can see the layers. These add dimension without extra bulk, which is great for keeping postal costs down! I punched three small circles to make my own ‘Candi’ embellishments.

Of course I decorated the inside of the card and the envelope too:


I again used the Clear glitter pen to add extra sparkle 🙂

Here is the finished project:


Thank you for stopping by!

Take care and happy crafting,

Jenny 🙂

    The wink of Stella is really effective and a great idea making your own coordinating Candi 🙂
