Sophisticated Birthday Card for Mom

112609 022 copy

I made this birthday card for my mom using the Chic Boutique stamp set. When I gave it to her, she asked why I chose the bird cage image. I told her I don’t know why, I just did. It turns out she just bought a decorative bird cage that looks just like this one. I guess I know my mom’s taste!

The card base is pretty in pink, layered with a dark brown patterned acetate I got at a craft store. I stamped the bird cage on whisper white paper in chocolate chip ink, then colored it in using SU Markers in chocolate chip and pretty in pink. After stamping, I sprayed some Glimmer Mist I made using 70% Rubbing Alcohol and Frost Shimmer Paint. It doesn’t show up well in the picture but it makes the whisper white look just like SU’s Shimmery White Card stock.

I also sprayed the Pretty in Pink card stock and layered the white, chocolate chip textured, and pretty in pink card stock. Using the cropadile, I punched a hole at the top of the bird cage and added a Circle Rhinestone Brad in pink. Those layers are then adhered to the base using dimensionals.

The sentiment is from Warm Wishes, stamped in chocolate chip ink on whisper white (that I sprayed with Glimmer Mist) and trimmed out with my paper snips. That is also popped up on dimensionals.
