Glitter birthday card


Today I’m blogging this card for DESIGN in PAPERS. Turns out that a card that is entirely covered in glitter is not easy to photogaph in bad lighting. So I’m a tad bit late with todays post since I had to wait for it to clear up a bit to take new pictures. But here it is! I used some Elizabeth Craft dies, double sided tape sheets and lots of glitter.


The sentiment means Happy Birthday and I was intending to give this to my son but since I made it a while back I sort of forgot I had it and yesterday I paniked and made a new last minut card using a freebie from Create a Smile stamps that I colored with copics.


I love this cute guy and so did Viggo. The picture I just snapped with my iPhone before giving it to him, I was in a hurry. I actually printed out two monsters if I would mess up and had fun coloring it in front of the tv later. I’ll probably make him too into a card when I have the time. He is such a cutie this little monster. I actually have some monster friends for him to play with from Doodle Factory, I might have to introduce them and make a card with lots of little monsters on. Oh, all the ideas and no time :-/

Well, I better get back to school work, I just had to get the card up before the day was over. Hopefully I’ll have some scrap time soon to get my mojo back on track. It seems to run away when I don’t get down to my scrap often enough. Keep your fingers crossed that it’ll be back soon! Thanks :)

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
