Bev of Happy Dance has suggested that we surprise Anita with a birthday card hop on March 18th and Darnell has offered to host it for us all.
Now those of you who know Anita will realise she has a real style on all her cards so I decided to case one that caught my eye last month. Here is Anita's card:
And here is my take on her lovely card.
Now I know Anita used plasterboard mesh tape and jointing medium but I had been wanting to use this That Special Touch - Distressed Dots mask. I masked off the area I wanted the embossing paste to be and then used three colours of Sparkle Medium from Imagination Crafts (Black Stars, Jade and Silver). When it was dry I matted it onto some dotty embossed card in complimentary colours and onto the card base. I had used a Spellbinders border die at the bottom of the card and placed in a layer of vellum. I then heat embossed in white the sentiment from Stampin Up Vintage Verses which, in turn was die cut using Spellbinders fancy tags. This was then added to the card using some matching brads. As this ties in nicely with the current challenge over at Less is More I am entering my card there.
So, although we are a month late I hope Anita feels it's worth it!!! Happy Belated Birthday Anita.
