A Special Birthday Card

Hi all

At this busy time of year we mustn't forget those whose birthdays are in December, my mother-in-law  is one of those people and this year it was her 80th birthday and so I felt that this warranted a special card  I have recently been introduced to the wonderful chippie pieces from Scrapiniec.  There chipboard pieces are beautifully intricate and extremely delicate.  Here is the card I created.

I cut a piece adhesive canvas from Ranger and added some paper and some embellishments  you can see here the bare chipboard pieces

I then started adding Distress ink sprays I used, Tea Dye, Wild Honey and Spied Marmalade 

The face in the frame is one of Sandra Evertsons Relics and Artifacts.  I covered the lot in gesso before spraying as you can see here.

I thought i had taken a photo of the fully completed card but i obviously forgot!  once the sprays had dried i mounted this piece onto an 8 x 8 square card

Thanks for popping by and I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and New Year

Take Care and Happy Crafting
