I used Blue Fern Studios "Frolic" papers to cover the card and bag and added a little edge punching with a Martha Stewart punch. I inked the edges in a soft pink and did a bunch of fussy cutting which I popped up in spots with foam tape for dimension.
The cake piece was fun to decorate; to simulate the look of cake I mixed a little salt in with the yellow acrylic paint. he icing is texture paste sprinkled with microbeads and the candle is patterned paper run through an embossing folder then heat-embossed with clear embossing powder. The flame of the candle was heat-embossed in antique gold then rubbed with a little orangey-red ink.
The heart border strip single heart and gifts outline were primed with white gesso then heat-embossed with Bridal Tinsel glitter embossing powder. I then used a glue pen on them
before covering them with white glitter. (My friend likes sparkly things!!)
The gifts were covered in patterned papers; I used a different paper for each package to give more contrast then I added the outline piece that was all glittered up. I love all the pieces in the Birthday Shape set but I think these gifts are my very favourite!
Thanks so much for stopping by; wishing you a wonderful and creative week!
