As you might guess from the photo it's our son Simon's birthday today
and this card was inspired after seeing various cards made by my
Stampin Up sister Amanda Bates on one of the Jems' Team's Blog Hops.
When I saw Amanda's fabulous cards, I just had to have a go,
and I think I made three cards using this fold the same day!!
As Simon's card is usually difficult to design, I decided to go with this fancy fold
and played with some retired DSP, the beautiful Bermuda Bay Glimmer Paper
(which I adore!) , my treasured Large Letters framelits and my little star punch
(which is really useful for embellishments on mens cards!)
I am really impressed with the result and I think you can see the fabulous
glimmer effect on the letters quite well on this photo.
Here's a link to Amanda's Blog Hop post that set me off making quite a few
of these U fold cards (I think thats the name Amanda gave to them)
Thanks so much Amanda - right I must nip back to your blog and case your lighthouse card!!
