I was asked to make a card for a special 70th birthday and this is what I came up with.....
On cream hammer card, I stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with a silver pearl powder. The leaf dies are Marianne, the butterfly is from NS and the sentiment was PC generated and then cut out with a Nestie Label 4.
I like to use a heavyweight textured card and have found that to add more texture and interest I can use stamps - Glenda's in particular are good because of their large swirly nature which can be twisted this way and that and end up looking like you've used a number of different ones instead of one!
I thought you would like to see the insert of the card. The verse is lovely and really useful - feel free to use it.
Sorry I have been such a bad blogger - life, pc problems and internet connections are causing me somewhat of a headache!
