The Mojo Monday Sketch #432 inspired me to pull out the Specialty Project Life Cards offered as a freebie during SAB. I'm very excited about those because there's some gold-foil acetate cards in there, some embossed ones, some frames... They're all awesome! Whether you're a scrapbooker or not, you can see from my project here those cards can be used to make tags, cards, packaging, etc. so not scrapbooking shouldn't deter you from getting them as a free gift. On this card, I layered a clear-embossed star patterned Daffodil Delight card and a clear card with a gold foil circle frame in the center.
The stamp set I used is also a SAB freebie set called Salut. I stamped the big sentiment on white cardstock in Old Olive ink and fussy cut it. I added the "and happy birthday" stamp, die-cutting this part with the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies. The little party hat, from the same set, was inked with Stampin' Write markers, cut out and added to the gold circle. Two gold sequins (taken off of the gold sequin trim) were added in the top right corner and topped with Wisteria Wonder candy dots.
Strips of Wisteria Wonder and Old Olive patterned papers were punched with the Triple Banner punch, and a piece of narrow olive ribbon was tied in a bow at the bottom of the card.
The colour combo came from ColourQ #326 and the theme from the Nacho Average SAB Blog Hop.
TIP: To glue the clear Project Life card over the Daffodil Delight one, I started by glueing all my embellishments in place with mini glue dots on the clear card first, then I turned it over and applied the adhesive underneath my sentiment and embellishments, where it wouldn't show through.
