Golden Birthday Card for PPA268


Welcome to this week's Pals Paper Arts Challenge, a sketch! The sketch threw me because I kept thinking "star" but instead, I began to think "one large and simple element in the middle" and that's when this idea came to me.


Adhering the Fancy Foil Vellum is a snap when you use the striped pattern! I used Tear and Tape on every stripe towards the edges. Simple! The Gold Foil Doily has a Circles Collection "Happy Birthday" from Tin of Cards. I embossed it with Gold Embossing Powder. It's popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals and I slid a Gold Satin Ribbon underneath the circle. My card base is Thick White Card Stock, so rich and perfect to hold all of that gold.

I hope you enjoyed looking today. I hope you are inspired to make your own card. Post it to the Pals site and you will be playing along!
