Gold Dot Birthday

Good morning, Friends! Are you all ready for a great weekend? Looks to be a beautiful day around here! I am so loving these warmer spring like days! Nick is loving his two weeks of spring break, too! He has one more week of it and I know that he will not waste one minute of it - lol! I think that more mountain biking is in order this weekend. My son is trying to get me to go, too, and I just may try it this weekend. We will see…

Today's card was inspired by last week's sketch at Freshly Made. It's not my favorite but I wanted to try out some of the new designer foil vellum. I know that I am late to the party on this but I just finally "had" to have it! So I am enjoying using these products!! This was my first attempt at using the new vellum. 

  • Card base is Whisper White
  • Adhere a piece of the gold designer foil vellum to the top part of a piece of Whisper White (I put adhesive to the back of the vellum only where the gold dots are)
  • Punch a strip of Basic Black with the scallop edge border punch and adhere to panel
  • Stamp the greeting from Petite Pairs in black StazOn onto the panel
  • Tie a piece of the gold twine around the panel and adhere to a piece of Basic Black
  • Adhere panel to card base with dimensionals
That's all there is to it! Did you get a chance to take the Create with Connie and Mary Card "Create"tions Design Team blog hop yesterday? This special edition starts tomorrow! I hope to see you there! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
