For You and Happy Birthday

For You and Happy Birthday, Glitter Cards by Helen G. and Abigail G.


That’s the word that my daughter and I love 🙂 We love glitter a lot. Today we worked on cards using glitter. Crafting with my daughter is one of my favorite things to do to spend time with her, and hopefully soon the baby will be joining us without eating the glitter. LOL!

Here’s the birthday card my daughter made for our friend using her flock glitter and sequins:

She even wrote the message inside for our friend… love it!

And here’s my card I made for our friend. She is the same friend 🙂 I cut couple pattern papers from Amy Tangerine – Sketchbook Paper Pad, chevron pattern in 3″ x 3″ and watermark pattern in 2.75″ x 2.75″. Then I glued the chevron paper in the center of the card base with glue dots. I wrapped the baker twine around the bottom watermark pattern paper and added onto of the chevron paper with 3D foam tape.

I printed and handcut digital stamp from Avery Elle, then I colored the flowers and leaves with CTMH Exclusive Inks™ Marker Set: Hollyhock, Cotton Candy, Gypsy and Topiary. And the tag border I used Honey. I added some glitter using Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush and then I finished it with Bitty Sparkles.
