WOYWW 337 - let's try this again

Well, last week was an epic fail as I didn't even get the chance to write the post to join in with WOYWW. If you are wondering what I'm talking about pop over and see Julia at the Stamping Ground for more info.

This weeks desk is actually a follow on from what I would have written last week. The card is for my sister-in-law, I have 3 - and 2 of them have birthdays in November! It was in progress last week but now is completed as it needs to be posted to arrive by the end of the week. Her present is also on the desk which shall go with the card. The paper bag on the left hand side has vintage lace ribbon. Nat is a sucker for lace and shares my button fetish so we often drool over each others stash when we get together which isn't often enough. Also on the desk is the phone - I often speak to my sister whilst I'm at the desk - I like company when I craft.

A close up of the card for those interested.

Its a Dreamweaver stencil that I put over double sided sticky paper and then added glitter through the stencil. If you are careful with the amount of glitter you add you can get really good effects. I used whoye sparkle to fill in the sticky spaces once I had removed the stencil. Matted and layered onto green card and onto a white card that I had stamped over with a flower stamp with versamark and applied cosmic shimmer in a loverly iridescent green. I hope she likes it.
Thanks for stopping by. I shall visit you all later.

  6. That card is gorgeous! And, what a neat process to create it as well. Thanks for sharing your process. :)
    I think I would get lonely too if my hubby weren't home with me all the time. I'm sure talking with your sister is very fun though!
