Today I am showing you a birthday card I made for my sister Cherie. Both of my sisters are very artistic, Robin is a master quilter and Cherie is a master at whatever is in her had at the moment. I wanted today's birthday card to be artsy and cool
The wavy background paper was done intentionally, I used a piece of textured paper from my stash, dry embossed, ink-stained and sprayed with mica spray.
Getting something like this to adhere to anything can be a challenge. By using Best Glue Ever I did not need score tape or hot glue for these problematic papers.
BGE even works on mirror board and ink soaked watercolor paper.
Just a thin bead, holds it all down. Normally I run the bead very close to the edge. Because I did not want this down perfectly I brought the bead closer to the center.
The layers held firmly and they were not stiff. Some glues make your cards stiff and can actually crackle if you bend them a little - that is because the glue is breaking under the paper!
Thanks for stopping by, here is a freebie for your paper crafting:
What a gorgeous card Ginny -= so wonderfully rich in texture colour and detail!
Thanks for the wee freebie
