I love to create cards and it seems people enjoy receiving them. You'll often find me amidst a stack of paper, glitter, stamps and inks playing with my supplies. If you would like to make an order, email me at cardsbycara AT hotmail DOT com
I had a birthday card to make for a friend and I had already created this sparkly background:
I took a Heidi Swapp stencil I got on sale and used some Golden's Texture Paste (cheaper than the paste from craft stores) and added it with an old credit card.
While it was still wet, I added Martha Stewart's glitter in gold which adds a gorgeous look to the background. To make the birthday card, I added some Fresh ink in Fuschia to a piece of Recollections 110lb white cardstock and used one of the Wet Paint dies to cut out 'happy':
I adhered it using Tombo Mono Aqua glue (a new fave of mine!) to the front of the card. I love the look of the bright pink against the white and gold.
I just picked up some brown paper bags with a white stripe - I am planning on using some of these for Christmas card envelopes. I added a gold strip of washi on the back to close the envelope and that was it.
