Hi... thank you for popping by

This is an 8"x8" white card base with a thin black mat.  I cut another piece of white card in two pieces, the larger card had double sided adhesive sheet on it and I removed the backing from that and sprinkled Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels in Iced Snow to cover it.  I added mounting foam to the back and adhered to the top part of the card
I also covered the smaller piece of card with double sided adhesive sheet then sprinkled Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels in Diamond Sprinkles.  I put double sided tape on the back and adhered that to the lower part of the card
I used the Aurora Star Die by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions to create the main focal point in two black and one gold and cut two black bases and one gold base card.  I then scored the three bases and using Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue I adhered to the scored bases.  To maintain the dome effect I used a large 'dollop' of 3D Collall Glue by Crafter's Companion to the centre of all three stars and placed them onto the card
I typed the sentiment as this was for a very good friend of mine and I wanted to make it personal.  I covered this with double sided adhesive sheet, removed the backing and sprinkled Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels in Diamond Sprinkles
I used the narrowest Stitched Flags from the Frames and Tags by Sue  Wilson for Creative Expressions for the sentiment then the smallest die again from the Frames and Tags - Pierced Flags by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions for the black mat

I hope you enjoy my blog, your comments are always welcome

Hi... thanks for popping by...
I started with an A4 white card, folded it in half to create an A5 card.
Blue card was used to make the frame, this is from one of the shadow boxes.  I added mounting foam to the back to give height.
I used a balloon punch and a star punch to add to the card and wrote 7 on the balloons also adding a small white line to highlight and attached strands of ribbon behind the balloons.
The letters and numbers were from a die set, cut out in white but for the name, Harry, I also cut the letters in black to give a shadow.
The console was from a picture in my stash and this had mounting foam added to the back and placed on the card. I also added a few silver stars around it.
Happy Birthday was embossed in black and a few more stars added around the sentiment
