Shelf Card

Well now .................. where do I start with this one ?   What do I call this one ?   Its an Easel Card, but its also a Shelf Card as there is a little decorative panel that sits on and hangs over a shelf/mantlepiece.

I saw some shelf cards on Pinterest which feature some comical little people - so I thought outside the box which I often do...... and came up with this super shiny silver embellished 50th Birthday Card.

A special occasion merits a special card so I went to town with stamping and heat embossing in silver.  I used my Flower Shop Bundle and Petite Petals Bundle together with my Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack for the beautiful flowers.  The leaves are not Stampin Up dies.  

The fabulous Large Numbers Framelits Dies provided a nice big number 50 focal point, which I layered on a large punched circle which is layered upon a larger silver scalloped circle which, again, is not a Stampin Up die. 

I really do like this style of card and shall be experimenting with the syle in various different colourways - so watch this space.  Hope you like it too.

I just need to make a box for it now!! 

Thank you for stopping by today.
