CCM #230 That Special Someone

As Mother’s Day is next Sunday here in the UK we would love to see your creations for your Mum, but as a lot of us, sadly, no longer have our Mum’s we are happy to see your creations for someone who is really special to you instead.

My card was created for my Niece, for her birthday.

The background is pixie powders. The image has been stamped in the centre of a piece of card diecut with Sue Wilson’s Ava Frames and Tag die. The silhouette is from Creative Expressions and is called The Ex, it comes with a funky sentiment stamp to0 – ‘I still miss my ‘Ex’ …. but my aim is improving - but that wasn’t really suitable for a birthday card!

The die cut layer and the pixie powder background layer are matted onto a blank premade card with a fancy edge with embossing on it. I did go over the embossing with blue chalk to accentuate the embossing. I did actually get a little heavy handed and managed to die the whole edge blue, not just the raised areas. Thank goodness it was chalk, as I spent the next twenty minutes or so rubbing it away!

The sentiment I made on my pc.
