Birthday card with Glossy handmade background

By | August 5, 2017

Today is my sister-in-law Debbie’s birthday and she is a fan of purple, so today’s card is for her!

The background is made with drops of re-inker, rubbing alcohol in a spritzer and glossy white cardstock. There are so many techniques that you can use glossy white cardstock with, I’m so glad Stampin’ Up! is selling it again.

To make the background I put a few drops of re-inker on my silicone craft sheet, spritzed alcohol on the paper and using a baby wipe, dapped the color over the paper. I used Elegant Eggplant, Wisteria Wonder and Smoky Slate. The picture, just does not due the background justice, I just love the shine.  The Happy Birthday is die cut in Elegant Eggplant and I used liquid glue (tapped on a piece of sponge) to adhere to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals on a mat of Elegant Eggplant, a few rhinestones and bow (from retired Smoky Slate ribbon) finish off the card.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by, hope you are inspired to try making cards.

Have a great day – Craft On!
