Anniversary card


I managed a little time in the craft room today - I was draggin tail big time today (work yesterday was just a bit crazy...).

I used another of the 3D Shadowboxes cut from one of Vicki's dies .
My sister and her DH will have their 25th Wedding Anniversary in April so I decided to do them a fancy card. (I am pretty sure she never has time to pop in here so can show you...). Their colors were a light blue .

On the mid section of the base I used a cuttlebug folder and a Technique Junkie technique called 'cuttlebug highlights' - on the side panels I used the same cuttlebug folder and a product called 'magic stamp foam block' in a slight modification of a TJ technique called cuttlebug stamps that uses fun foam. The magic stamp foam block is really cool - you heat it with a heat gun for a couple minutes and then it will take an impression and can be used like a stamp - I used the same cuttlebug folder.
You can find the magic stamp foam block here -
I haven't used mine in awhile but will be alot more - really makes my cuttlebug folders a great value!!!! And I just ordered some more too!!! :)

The stamp for the main image is from Northwoods Stamps. I embossed the stamp on cream paper with white detail powder, added some shadows with a copic marker and outlined it with a gold mettalic pen before cutting it out.
The rest of the stamps are from Gina K and also colored with my copics. I was going for more of a pale ice blueish and it accually turned out slightly bluegreenish.... I just got this set last week and really like it - especially the cake!!!
I added some flat back pearls in spots and some smaller ones to the cake.
All for now - got some couch chillin time to accomplish :)
Take Care
