Marda's Birthday Card!

Marda and I have been very close "online friends" for many years, going back to the days of me being on the Pazzles Design Team and guess what?  She too, has a birthday in January...LOL  For her card, I came up with the idea to use a "mesh grid" on the front of the card and the design gave birth from there, so I decided to design a file to cut with my Cameo.  Here is the end result.

I also designed the "greetings" and for the "BIRTHDAY", I cut it twice, once out of the the card base and then again out of glitter cardstock which I then "inlaid" back into the card base.  Of course, I just had to do some paint "splatters" and add some sequins!  My Memory Box "Climbing Vine" die was way too big for this card, so I scanned a die cut and downsized it and cut it with my Cameo.

For the inside top of the card, I used the negative "leftovers" from the "mesh grid" that were left on my cutting mat.  I just used some "Glad Press'n Seal" to pick them up, add glue and adhere them to the card.

Marda loved her card!!!  I will be back real stay tuned!
