a little Birthday wish by Jo Piccirilli


I love when I get to make cards for people that really appreciate the effort that goes into it..  The card I have to share today is for a special lady who is celebrating a special birthday.  Lots of layering in this card.

To start I have used the beautiful papers from the Damask Delight paper pads.  I love this stripe paper.  Reminds me of liquorice allsorts!

I matted both sheets of paper onto some black cardstock.  Before I stuck them onto each other I tucked a doily underneath.  The die I have used is called Mirror Mirror and is from the Madeline collection.  I have only used half.  Don't throw the other half out, you can use it on another project at a late date.

The long lace strip that runs along the card is from the Chandeliers set from the Momento collection.  This is a long strip but can quite easily cut down for cards.

Once that strip is in place I then used both the oval and scallop oval nesting dies.  I have stamped my sentiment in the top corner . 

I cut two hearts from my hearts nesting dies with chipboard and covered them with some paper again from the Damask Delight paper pads.  I added some flowers and also some pretty self adhesive pearls

Thanks for stopping by, until next time
