Make a Wish

Today I have a birthday card with some shine.  For some inspiration, I used the Try Stamping on Tuesday Challenge #373.  The sketch was turned and the elements were moved around a bit but I really enjoyed the sketch.

Card Base:  Gray Granite CS cut 5-1/2" x 8-1/2"; score at 4-1/4" on long side.  Added a layer of Whisper White CS that was run through the Big Shot using the Subtle EF.  Oooh, do I like that folder.  On a piece of Gray Granite CS I heat embossed the sentiment from the Broadway Birthday stamp set using Versamark and Black Embossing Powder.  I matted the strip with Basic Black CS and attached it to the card.

Image Layer:  I cut out a piece of Broadway Bound DSP using the Layering Circle Framelits.  From Basic Black CS I cut a scalloped circle from the same framelits and matted the dsp circle.  It was attached to the card with Dimensionals.

Sentiment:  The wish was cut from Gold Foil using the Broadway Lights Framelits.  Before cutting it out I backed the foil with a piece of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets.  I then cut out three more sentiments from Basic Black CS adding adhesive sheets to two of them,  I layered the gold sentiment with the three black sentiments, adding the one without the adhesive as the last layer.  I did that because I wanted to pop up the sentiment.  Foam Adhesive Strips were used to do that.  I layered the dot over the "i" the same way and used a rolled up Glue Dot to attach that.

The Finishing Touch:  To add a little more shine, I added three Gold Faceted Gems.  

I'm happy you stopped by today.  Sure hope your weekend is going well.  Enjoy - be safe and be blessed,.
