A Pearly Birthday

October 16, 2018

I have really loved playing with Shimmer Paint techniques and decided to use one of them on this birthday card for a lovely friend.  Happy Birthday Shirley (sorry I was a little late).  I have used the sketch challenge at Case This Sketch for the layout. To create the background you need to scrunch up some cling wrap (Saran Wrap for my friends in the USA) and dab it into Frost White Shimmer Paint and then dab it onto Whisper White card.  You have to be patient and let it dry and then you gently add Sahara Sand ink using a sponge and a light circle motion.  This really makes the shimmer stand out.  The panel is attached to scored and folded Blackberry Bliss card.  Next I stamped the “slice of wood” image from the Rooted in Nature stamp set using Rich Razzleberry ink.  I stamped the greeting from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set onto Whisper White card using Blackberry Bliss ink.  The greeting is attached to Blackberry Bliss card and then the card front.  I stamped the leaf image from the First Frost stamp set onto Whisper White card using Shaded Spruce ink and cut it out using the matching Frosted Bouquet Framelits Dies before attaching to the card front.  I stamped the large and small flower from the First Frost stamp set onto Whisper White card using Blackberry Bliss ink and cut them out using the matching Frosted Bouquet Framelits Dies.  I used the stylus on my Take Your Pick tool to add a little dimension to the flowers.  I attached the small flower to the large flower using a dimensional.  The whole piece is attached over the leaf image also using a dimensional.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the leaf image from the First Frost stamp set onto the lower left hand corner of Whisper White card using Shaded Spruce ink.  I stamped the large flower from the same stamp set onto Whisper White card using Blackberry Bliss ink and cut it out using the matching  Frosted Bouquet Framelit Die.  The flower is attached over the leaf image.

I love how sparkly this card is although I am not sure that you can truly see the effect in the photos.  If you haven’t tried Shimmer Paint yet, then you are truly missing out.

Bye for now,

Kris
