Distress oxide ink, Gelli Plate, Half full, Happy Celebrations, Ribbons

Happy birthday G and T

Two friends celebrated their November birthdays …. my bestie Gwen and one of our other School Mum friends Tracy.  Here are the cards I made for them. 

I knew I had to use the Half Full stap set for Gwen’s card…. it is perfectly us! 

I created the background first using distress oxides then die cut the squares to create a feature.  I added the ribbon, sentiment and then the feature stamps on the top. Then added the sequins for added sparkle.

Tracy’s card I created the background using the distress inks and a gelli plate. I love the watery feel this gave it. 

Then using the Happy Celebrations stamps I stamped the sentiment. Again some sequins to finish and a silver ribbon under the raised topper to add some texture. 

Entering this card into the Monochrome challenge at 4craftychicks

Happy crafting! 

Catherine
