Just a note....

It was my Hubby's birthday on Friday and this is the card I made for him from me. I again used an assymetric card, this time cuttting the front much smaller than the back (about 5cms I think!) I covered the front with black paper & a smaller piece of glitter card from DCWV and the inside back was covered with a piece of vellum with musical notes all over it! Would you believe I've had this piece of vellum for yonks & have only just found a use for it & it went perfectly with this card!
I wanted a jazz musician for the front of the card so I downloaded an image from Google and reduced it on the photocopier. I then cut it out with a 1" margin all round. I added d/s tape to the white margin & stuck it to a piece of black card. I then cut out the image. I passed it through the Xyron & added black glitter to it (you can just see the sparkle in the photo) I stuck the glittered image onto a piece of silver mirri card and cut it into a rectangle. I added a contrast piece of patterned paper to the bottom of the mirri card piece and a strip of black ribbon with a music stave & notes on it. I added a treble clef wire embellishment to the ribbon. I then stuck the panel to the front of the card so that it overlapped onto the back. I added musical notes which were glittered with stickles and a sentiment panel adhered at an angle.
Hubby loved it!

Because of You......

I used papers from the DCWV Glitter Spring stack for this card. The sentiment is suitable for many occasions but I'm going to put 'I am who I am' inside. It would make a nice Mother's Day card don't you think?
I added a super-duper sized flower to the centre panel and used a fabric covered brad in the centre of it. I coloured the bottom half of the sentiment with a dark yellow marker and then glittered just the darker part. I added three pink gems to the inside back of the card to finish.

Be Happy!

This card was made with beautiful oriental-look paper from the DVWV Spring Stack. The front was cut narrower than the back and decorated with a punched strip of cardstock adhered to the inside front. A centre panel was pieced with contrasting papers and a punched border strip. A spotty voile ribbon & bow was added to the panel along with a sentiment medallion & layered flower with a blue gem brad as it's centre. The panel was raised on foam tape.
