Using a shop bought card blank really cuts down on your time when making a card so today's Design Team share is one I made with an 8" x 8" cream scalloped card blank to start. I layered a piece of gold matt card which I embossed with the Annabel embossing folder. I added some corners which were cut from the With Love Essentials die set.
The central embellishment on this card was layered using the Indulgence Royal frame, the outline of which was cut in both cream and gold mirror card with the pattern being cut into the cream layer. These were glued together and stuck centrally onto the card front with 3d foam pads. Next, the Deco Ovals outer edge was cut in matt gold, then in cream and the pattern die then cut into the cream layer. Again, 3d foam pads were added to this for extra height and dimension. The large Happy Birthday out of the Everyday Sentiments was cut in both matt and mirror gold and layered with a drop shadow before being glued to the cream centre panel.
The car was finished with a hand tied satin edged organza bow and a few pearls in the centres of the flower corners.
