Yesterday was my hubby’s birthday so he had the normal Happy Birthday wishes in the morning … well mostly! It was Happy Birthday Honey … with a Twist – you see I’d made his card however he couldn’t have it till after my Birthday Stamp A Stack class! I’m sure he was fine with that!
Actually this card has a couple of ‘twists’ …
The first twist being of the Lemon Lime variety! I cant tell you just how wrong I was about this colour when I first saw it back in April. My first impression was ‘what were they thinking’ but I’m now finding it hard not to use it in my projects! It goes with most colours, adds a pop when needed, and if you look around you will see it everywhere!
So, once again, Stampin’ Up! is in the know and knows what will be trending!
Another twist on this card is how I did the framelit sentiment …
I’ve cut out the sentiment twice – in Lemon Lime Twist and in Whisper White. I then popped the Lemon Lime Twist onto the Whisper White with our Liquid Multipurpose Glue and gave it a ‘twist’ to offset it a little and give like a drop shadow effect to the sentiment. This also adds a little depth and dimension to the card.
If you look closely you’ll see a sneak peek from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue (have you requested your copy yet? click here to get yours). Yes it’s the gorgeous new Black Rhinestone Jewels – my gosh they are gorgeous and the perfect embellishment for this card!
I hope you also noticed the Gold Metallic Thread I used – it’s not one of my favourite trims to use so it needs noticing when I do! 😉
