Today I made a birthday card for a very sweet family member. Her birthday is in about 3 1/2 weeks, but I have been thinking about the composition for some time now, and wanted to move forward with it.
I cut a negative frame by using a Cricut cartridge, cut the paper to size, then ran it through an embossing folder. Another piece of white paper was run through a lattice die, which was attached to the back of the embossed frame; then to the back of that was attached some multi-colored, glittery paper.
A corner embellishment was die cut and placed in the upper left hand corner; flowers were punched, along with foliage punches and dies and placed around the frame, and in the center of each flower is a liquid pearl. The sentiment was printed from my computer and backed with blue paper; both the sentiment and the backing were trimmed with a small corner rounder punch; they were mounted with pop dots. A little yellow butterfly with three liquid pearls along the body finishes the card. It is also coated with gold glitter glue.
