Another Birthday Card

Today after I got some of my housework done I played again with foiling and once again used the card stock and supplies I already had on my work area to create a more clean and simple card design. But with a white embossed panel and with some gold foiling it turned out have a elegant look to it regardless.

For inspiration I once again took my design from elements listed in the Double D's Inspirational mood board photo. They are celebrating their one year birthday or anniversary. And the sentiment I chose for the card had only one candle on it so I thought it was a perfect choice.

I used some of the pre-printed toner sheets with sentiments on them that Gina K. Designs sells. The sentiment was die cut with a scalloped die and I also used a Deco Foil Toner sheet on which I die cut the outer circle. Before I added the foil to my sentiment piece though I colored in a portion of it with a peachy colored Copic marker. I wanted some color added to match the main card of Gina K. Designs Peach Bellini card stock.

My white embossed panel was done using a Cuttlebug embossing folder called Floral Fantasy. I thought it matched the design on the One image in the inspirational photo. After I had layered this to the main card I then proceeded to add the foiled sentiment design.

The final addition to the card was to add a double bow ribbon which had threads of gold running through it.

Dies used:
Cheery Lynn Designs XM-5 Scalloped Circle and XL-4 Circle-Classic
Other Supplies;
Gina K. Designs-Card stock and pre-printed toner sentiment sheet
i-Craft Deco Foil Toner Sheets and i-Craft Deco Foil Sheets
Crafter's Companion Glue Pen
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder-Floral Fantasy
Copic Marker-YR00 Powder Pink

Well, we are in a cold, cold spell. This morning it was 18 degrees below zero. And below zero highs too! Good time to stay inside where it is warm and I am so grateful that the power is back on. That would have been even more rough with temps like this. As it was, during that time we had fairly mild temperatures so that was a plus. You have a great evening now. And thanks for the visits and all the great comments.

God bless,

This is beautiful - what a great use of the foiling, and that embossed background is gorgeous. That is one of the first EFs I purchase and haven't used it in ages. I need to pull it out again, thanks for the inspiration!!!!

Oh, I love this, Verna! You used one of my first ever embossing folders and still a favorite. Good progress on those birthday cards! Yikes, 18 below is so COLD! It was 25 above here last night and I thought it was frightful. Our snow hasn't melted yet and now it's hard and crunchy. Thanks again for joining us at Double D!
