Mum Birthday Card

Hi, it's Sharon here with my first project.



I have finished making a card for my mum's birthday using the small "MUM" chipboard word which is approximately 90mm long. I knew that I wanted a feminine card and of course a glittered word!



I painted the chipboard with two coats of Buttermilk acrylic paint and inked the edges with Chestnut Roan chalk ink. I then applied glossy accents and Crystal Glamour Dust for sparkle. The chipboard piece is really thick and sturdy and really stands out on the card.



The paper base is Pandora from the Victorian 7 gypsies collection.
The flourish border and 60 has been cut using the Storybook cartridge on the Cricut. The butterflies have been punched, stamped, blinged and layered.


I have really enjoyed making my first DT project and hope that you like it too.
Thanks for looking and any comments you leave are really appreciated.
