A new birthday card

My friend Barbie came over recently and spent the day.  She brought her cuttlebug folders, and I had a great time using them.  I have a few, but not many, so embossed a large pile.

The CS is from my stash.  The flower was done using several flower dies, and an old paperback book, as well as a paperback dictionary I found at the $ store.

I Used Distressed Ink, Vintage Photo on both side of the edges of the leaves, then piled them up and sprayed them with a Perfect Pearl mixture I had made up, to get a little glimmer.  While they were damp, I :scrunched" them up a couple of times, then allowed them to dry.

After they were dry, I poked a hole in what I hoped was the middle, and used a large red brad from my stash.  This was fun, and I like the look.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog, and I hope you will leave a message.

Have a great week!
Hugs, Pat

  1. Love your flower Pat, the card is great too

  2. Great idea, Pat, to recycle a book/dictionary -- you're going to drive the recipient crazy, though, trying to "read" the petals - LOL !!!
    Looks like you had a fabulous time with Barbie --good for you !!

  3. Great card, love the flower.
