Hello, I am back today with a card for the next topping at Seize the Birthday. Cathy is our fabulous hostess and she picked Metallics as our topping. We also have a brand new Surprise Party Guest joining us who is no stranger to card making; the talented Karren Johnson will be with us for the next two months. Welcome, Karen! I am very delighted to have you with us!
At first thought, you might think that are topping is hard but it is really rather simple. For instance, you could use; Foiling, Foiled or metallic colored cardstock, metallic mica sprays, gilding flakes, metallic embossing powders, metallic sheets, and or embellishments, just to name a few! I chose to use a silver foiled card stock on today’s card.
The recipient of this card- Linda Snodgrass loves butterflies and she actually received this card yesterday in person. I love meeting up with crafty friends when they are in town or close by visiting. Nothing better!!! It’s actually the third time we have met up and it’s always so easy and enjoyable. Here is a pic below of us together. Love ya Linda, and thanks for spending your morning with me.
Card Details: Butterflies are from Birch Press Design. The pretty silver background is from SU in their So Detailed Thinlits set. The greeting is from Verve. The green stems are also from SU and in the Forever Fern set. A rather quick card to put together with good results, I would say.
I am also linking up over at Addicted to Stamps and More where the challenge is Birthday. They also have a DT call if you are interested.
I certainly hope you pop on over to Seize the Birthday and check out my fabulous teammate’s cards, as they all did such a great job with this topping! Remember our topping is optional too, any Birthday card will do!
Take care and happy creating, Nanc’
