It was back to using a card and decoupage from a Create and Craft kit to make this card and again I've done a Nancy Watt by using them to make up a larger card. I'm slowly working my way through the kit though and enjoy the challenge of finding co-ordinating cardstock and embellishments to use on each one. This card front had a pretty decorated edge along the top and bottom so it was left as it was rather than layering it up. Also attached to the front panel is a sentiment stamped using a stamp from Stampin' up's Petite Pairs set and punched out using their scalloped and large oval punches.
Purple and lilac cardstock were used for the layers and the Happy Birthday paper from the Cuddly Buddly download A Patchwork of Papers Purple was printed on to the palest lilac card. The Embossalicious 8"x 8" Regency Swirls folder was used to emboss other panels of this cardstock.
On the panel behind the front the number four was printed from the computer and die cut and layered using a Spellbinders nestabilities labels ten die.
On the inside the little picture from the back of the original card was also die cut and layered using a labels ten die. The verse was printed from the computer and layered behind frames cut with grand nestabilities circle dies.
My usual embellishments of lots of ribbon and bows were added along with some self adhesive pearls, peel off crystal dots and flowers punched using the Tonic small flower punch. Encore purple metallic ink was sponged around the scalloped edges of the base card, around some of the toppers attached to the card and on the pale lilac flowers.
Here's a lovely photo of Taylor with her cake. Clever Mummy.
