David's Birthday Card

Submitted by Michelle

David celebrated his birthday on Friday so a handmade card was definitely in order. Though I photographed this card 20 different ways I was not able to capture it's true beauty. I used my new favorite stamp - the Medallion - and inked it up with Chocolate Chip ink as a base, and then sponge daubed Stampin' Up's new Champagne Mist shimmer paint randomly over the stamp. When stamped onto paper, the image has a sparkly quality without being totally girly. I also used the shimmer paint to ink up a stamp from the Charming set for the center of my medallion. A vintage brad, designer paper and Chocolate Chip taffeta ribbon finished the card up nicely.
