Happy Birthday Julie

This is a card I made for a good friend of mine. I thought I had previously posted it but hadn't.  I wanted to share it because I loved the way it turned out. I used a special paper I purchased from a little craft shop in Victoria called Papercraft Cafe near Geelong. I haven't seen this paper anywhere else.
 You will find them at
7/136-146 Ormond Rd, East Geelong VIC 3219 Phone: (03) 5222 6788.

The paper is like velvet giving the card some texture.  I embossed it and used a metal die to cut the shape.  I stamped the image and coloured it with copics.

Thanks for stopping by

40 year Picture Wheel

Hello and welcome.

Today I'm sharing a birthday card.

I started off with a silver card and used a de-stresser on the edges of the card stock with Distress Ink Peeled Paint.  I die cut a picture wheel from Grunge Paper with the Tim Holtz  Picture Wheel die and stuck various pictures behind it. I used many inks on the grunge board, didn't quite get the effect I was after so then went over it with Distress Stain Black Soot. On the front of the picture wheel I placed some chain, a clock face and three pointers.  I also used eyelets through out the card and a initialed circular paper clip.

On the inside of the card I used a rub-on (the books) and for the greeting I stamped Happy Birthday on a piece of Shrinky Dink. I stamped the back also with a grid stamp using Staz-on black ink. I did not heat shrink it afterwards.

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your day.
