For One Night Only

Published January 10, 2012 by isisimaginings

Hello again, hard to believe we’re on the tenth day of January already. Today I have a birthday card to show you.

In recent years, it has become my ‘job’ to make individual birthday cards for colleagues of my friend Jen, at the Grand Cinema, Tacoma in Washington State, USA & it seems to have become a tradition that a new member of the Grand team gets a cinema themed card. Hence this card.

I folded a scalloped edge, square card into an easel & used red Mirri card & a fireworks patterned 12×12 paper as backing papers. Apart from the Nesties shapes, everything on this card was a gift from Jen at one time or another. She is very good at feeding my crafting habit. 🙂 Unfortunately, packaging has been lost over the years, but I think the seats, spotlight & stage are from Jolee’s Designs & the letter ‘k’ is from K & Company. I cut the flower from more red Mirri card, using PaperArtsy flower dies. Before layering them together I edged each diecut with a Krylon gold pen. The pearl in the centre is from Prima. I added a few aurora borealis adhesive gems to some of the fireworks for a little extra bling & that was it.

K’s birthday was earlier this week & I am relieved to report that she liked her card.

Thanks for looking. Until next time,

Love & light.
