MIM #105 2nd Post

Had to do a birthday card for an aunt turning 85, and it just needed the right bling. Perfectly coincides with MIM's tutorial given by Dawn McVey.
 
I used PTI's Shutterbug Special stamps and dies mostly.
Nichole Heady gave a tutorial a while back on stamp bleaching. The background is stamped repeatedly with bleach using the camera stamp, on Smokey Shadow cardstock. It turned shades of the most subtle kraft. Very photo negative looking. Embossing done with copper and Farm and Barn stamps. (PTI). I seem to like the look of that stamp alot!
Added a strip of double sided tape and fairy maple sugar glitter to the top.
The camera image was versamark stamped on Sweet Blush and embossed with red powder.
  MS pinked circle punched twice.
My sweet aunt still drives and loves life!
 
The message pulled from the slot is a stamped sentiment from Framed Out #1.
Here's a shot of the inside.
Stylish Sentiments: Birthday and My Mother: My Friend. (PTI)
Going to do my first double entry! Also entering Moxie Fab's Camera Craze Challenge.

  1. I LOVE the interactive cards you make. The pull down message tab is the best. The sentiments you chose were adorable, and the old school feel is perfect.

  2. You totally had me with you outside of your card, and then you showed the inside and I let out a little, "whoa!" Your inside could be a whole other card itself! Love the bleached effect on your dark base. You must have been so excited to see what the results were going to be. Fantastic first double-entry!

  4. This is a great card. You have so many wonderful elements from the bleaching (which I will have to try on kraft) to the embossing. Really love that chicken wire. I honestly thought it really was wire until I read your blog.
