Janelle’s 21st Card

Hello!

I know Christine is waiting for this card (she forgot to have a look at the party) … so I thought I would quickly post it! I had a busy day today … and … after going to the school fair committee meeting last night and then up until 11.30pm doing the newsletter + fair leaflet … and then … (BLAH BLAH BLAH) … you really aren’t interested in all that … so I will get to the card!!! 😉

I was really happy with the way this one turned out. I wanted to do a pink card for Janelle (Christine’s daughter) because it is her favourite colour … but she had organised a “glitter party” for her 21st … and I had found the most gorgeous glitter gift wrapping … but it was in blues & silver … so she didn’t get a pink one after all!!!

This is another card made using the “I {Heart} Hearts” stamp set from the Summer Mini Catalogue. I am finding it a really versatile set. There are just so many ways to use it! (Time is running out to purchase this set and help the Haitian Disaster Relief Fund.) So … the glittery “21” & the key were from a sticker pack from the newsagent. I couldn’t resist the glitter … seeing it was a “glitter party”!!! 😀 There are 4 layers on the card … Whisper White / Pacific Point / Baja Breeze / Whisper White.  (And … yes … you did read correctly PACIFIC POINT!!! I actually think that this looks wonderful teamed with the silver/baja & white! So … just when we are nearing the end of Pacific Point … I am finally growing to like it!!! The Baja Breeze layer kinda disappeared because of the sponging … but it is a bit more obvious on the REAL card! And … of course … with gorgeous gift wrapping … I just had to do a matching envelope!

You can see in the enlargement here that I have used the masking technique to stamp the hearts across the card. I also used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the hearts inside each other. I used some scraps of Baja & Pacific to stamp (with Silver ink) and punch with the matching “Heart to Heat” punch … and add with dimensionals on top of the other hearts. A little silver cord (ret. SU!) and a little sponging to finish it all off! My dh thought it looked very professional!!! He is always impressed with my creations!

So … I really need to go to bed. My eyes are hanging out of my head!!! Just can’t cope with a midnight night any more! Oh … these Winter Olympics are going to be the death of me!!! Why can’t the northern hemisphere run things at a more reasonable time???

    Intricate and v v effective Andrea…FAB card. I do love the bling (and the fact that u didn’t go pink…hee hee hee). Once again u have done an awesome job of tying everything into the colour scheme of the paper and it is MAD. The hearts convey so much sentiment and the bling ups it another notch. Brilliant!! ooxx
    Andrea adds: LOL … I think I should publish a book of cards … and get you to do the descriptions for each one! You do such a great job of it all!! Thanks for noticing all the detail! xxx
