Hello! I love it when I make a card submit it to multiple challenges, and I also love making one card for my challenge DT – Its a new challenge at both Little Tangles Challenge and Seize the Birthday Challenge!!
Little Tangles August Challenge has a new theme of ‘Birthday’. Just perfect, since Neat & Tangled is celebrating 5 years now!
Seize the Birthday Challenge this time has the optional topping of ‘Tie One On’.
Its a wonderful co-incidence for me, that both the challenges are airing on the same day, and a treat, since I love making birthday cards!! 🙂 So, here’s my tassled, sparkly gold inspiration for you –
I used all Neat and Tangled products on this one! I first used Topography stamp to gold heat emboss the background on a cardstock panel and trimmed a bit on the sides. This, I foam mounted on the card base. I then took another piece of cardstock panel, applied Tarnished Brass and Brushed Pewter distress paints, blending the two at the center to create a beautiful gradient (I just love the look it gives! :))
Once this dried, I die cut it using Doily Tag die, another of my N&T favorite, and tied my handmade tassel (first time I made one!! :D) on it, adhering the excess in the back. I then adhered this to the card, adding the adhesive in the center only, so that the sides rose a bit, giving it a bit more 3D look. I then added the sentiments – Happy Holidays die and mix and match of the letters in Faced stamp set, to create the ‘Birthday’ word.. since I didn’t own any other stamp set from N&T which said birthday and matched the die.. Well, it worked well, so I am glad! 🙂 Finally added some sequins as embellishment.
With this card, I am joining the following challenges –
Paru’s Cardmaking Challenge: August Challenge: Anything Goes
As You See It Challenge #155: How Do You Get Your Mojo Back? (I made this card by using the challenge themes, and using for inspiration all those cards that I’ve pinned in Pinterest for inspiration… that’s my mojo! 🙂 )
Simon Says Stamp Work It Wednesday Challenge: Add Sparkle
