Birthday Fun Card


Not much scrapping done today... although does it count that my "thoughts" were spinning on the next project I'm planning on working on?  :)

I have a cards to share with you that was submitted at Sketches 4 All for their January 2013 Mayhem, Out With the Old, In With the New Challenge.  The deadline for submissions is January 31st.

The challenge:
Your project must include at least one item that you've had in your stash for a year or more AND at least one item that is new in the last 30 days.

The OLD item should be something that you are truly using up... paper, embellies, etc.
The NEW item can include paper, embellies, ribbons, stamps, ink, even new tools you may have received.
And you can make a layout, card, tag, altered item and mixed media project.

Here's what I created:
I decided on a Birthday card for this project.  All the layers were embossed.  Rick rack was added along the bottom.  The edges of the sentiment were distressed and the present embellie is 3D.

OLD:  Paper, Embossing Folder, Rick Rack, Birthday Present Embellie, Sticker Sentiment
NEW:  Embossing Folder, Colorbok Pink Cardstock

 Here's a better look at the embossing and sentiment stickers, which were adhered onto cardstock, trimmed and distressed.

 It's still hard to see the 3D embellie, but there really is dimension to it.

Have a wonderful day!
