I like making cards for men, so I've opted for blues on my card, although I think it would work in reds and pinks too. I've used a few challenges in the making of this card:
I used my MISTI to create the chevron panel - this tool really makes it easy to line up the stamp perfectly each time. I stamped the large word wish at the bottom of the panel in black and embossed it with clear powder. On a scrap of white card I stamped the large explosion image which I embossed with clear powder. I stamped some words in the explosion and then carefully cut it out. I added some sparkle to the edge of the cut out image and used dimensional gel to adhere it to the card. On the inside I cut a mat layer of pale blue card and on the white panel added a birthday greeting and some candles.
Now, earlier I said that this is a Birthday Card Link Up Party and that there would be prizes. The link up will be open until midnight (GMT) Friday 10th March over at Uniko. The prizes are as follows:
