Enjoying Life

My mom's birthday is coming up.  She is going to her favorite place for a week so I think it is safe to post one of the cards I made for her.  I think I will send her a few cards to make her birthday week last longer.  <3


I have to admit this card took me forever.  Lots of trial and tons of error.  It turned out pretty, but still not "right".   I tried to use an Edgelit to cut out the stamped image.  It worked well, but I couldn't get the side ends to look right. 


My Grandma (mom's mom) loves hummingbirds.  Whenever mom or I see a hummingbird we think of Grandma.  I think perhaps I will make another card similar to this and send it to Grandma.  :)


I tried to capture the shimmer in the sunlight, but it is difficult to do.  To get shimmer I made some shimmer mist spray.  Below is a video I made awhile ago on how to make your own.  :)  One tip, it doesn't take as much shimmer paint as I added.




Creative Blessings,

These are just gorgeous. Happy birthday to your mother! I know how much I enjoy cards from my daughter and son - not hand made, but carefully selected.
