On Your Special Day

Hi there, 

Today I'd like to share another card using the Ornate Greeting Set 880 from the January Reveal along with one of Tonic's beautiful dies, Floral Blooms

I started with making my base panel using the lovely Tonic die, Floral Blooms. I cut a piece of Rinea Glossy Gold Foil with the die. 

Cutting the die on the Tangerine gave a wonderfully detailed and clean cut.

A piece of Super Adhesive Sheet was then layered on top of Tonic Harvest Gold mirror cardstock.

The protective layer of the Super Adhesive Sheet was removed and then the foil die cut was placed on top of the adhesive and the new Butterscotch Microfine Glitter was burnished in.

The background was layered on to a cream card base. The sentiment from the Ornate Greetings
was applied with Nuvo Clear Mark ink to cream cardstock and then heat embossed with Gold Detail.
After die cutting with the Spellbinder's Mega Ovals, I sponged on some Nuvo Oyster Pearl embellishment mousse.

The bird chipboard piece was applied with an old Versamark ink pad that I keep specifically for chipboard. I gave the bird two coats of the Gold Detail embossing powder and before the second coat cooled I sprinkled on some Magic Speckle. I love the results that the Magic Speckle gives depending which other powder you add it to. This time it gave off a slightly bluish hue to it.

After attaching the bird to the sentiment with a thin strip of mounting tape, I added the sentiment panel
to the background with a little gold brad and gold thread. Three little Honey Gold Nuvo Glitter Drops
were then added to the base of the sentiment. This finished off my card for today.

Thanks for stopping by today. Below you'll find links to most of the products I used to make my card.

Warm Hugs,



  1. Wow the die-cut foil frame looks beautiful! Sparky card ;)

  2. This is just amazingly beautiful, and the bird looks so metallic, I had to read the post to learn it was chipboard! Love the speckles (that and the gold foil product are new to me). This is such a gorgeously detailed die on the background, looks wonderful with the foil and the butterscotch inlay. TFS & hugs.

  3. A beautiful and ornate background and I love that pretty bird die too. Your card is gorgeous.
