Today is the birthday of my first grand-daughter Ellie
who will be 24 today! I can't believe she has grown up so quick!
Here's the card I made for her
it's not what I intended to do, but its how it finished up!
It started life as an Eclipse card,
using the Year of Cheer Speciality DSP that looks so luxurious in White and Copper,
and I cut out ELLIE using the Large Letters Thinlits
and I layered this onto a mat of the fabulous Copper Foil Card.
I then used adhesive strip on the back of the cut out letters
and stuck them back in place.
I used Versamark and Copper Embossing Powder to heat emboss
the greeting using stamps from the Big on Birthdays stamp set.
At this stage it looked like this
But... I just wasn't happy with it, because of the reflection on the
patterned DSP, it was difficult to see that it actually said ELLIE
on it - so I cut ELLIE out again using Copper Foil and stuck it on top
of the original raised letters.
What do you think?
Anyhow, Happy Birthday my darling Ellie,
