Dance Like It’s Your Birthday

Family birthdays always demand an extra special card. In this case it was my daughter’s birthday. I’ve made lots of cards for both of my daughters over the years and was searching for inspiration on Pinterest. I found a beautiful card by Laura Kimber of Kimber Kreations. As you will see if you follow the link, I basically copied most of the design but used some different stamps to achieve more or less the effect. In this instance I can’t take credit for the design. Laura gives some great step by step instructions as to how to create the main image on her blog http://kimberkreations-laura.blogspot.com/2017/01/beautiful-you-2.html . I added Spectrum Noir sparkle pen to the highlights and created and all over stamped background for the card base heat embossed with white embossing powder on black card. The final card is a variation of a double Z fold card which is one of my favourites of the moment. There are more pictures in the gallery below but if you want details of materials used, click on the first image.
