Happy Birthday, Angelica!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ANGELICA!!

 


I am SOOOOO happy to be a part of this fabulous hop for the one and only, Angelica! 

You should be arriving here from Mel's blog! If not, you can start at Kathy's blog and hop your way through! 

I have worked with Angelica now for over a year and count her as one of my very good friends- she's always there to listen, she gives me a boost when I need it, and she always goes out of her way to help and support me in everything I do. While I haven't actually *met* her in real life, I feel like we are two peas in a pod- we GET each other, and sometimes that's hard to find (especially when you're a little, um, weird. ok. not weird. cool. yup, let's call it cool.)!

So.... to celebrate Angelica's birthday (and hopefully put a big SMILE on her face!) I made her this card:


I had a lot of fun with this one! And I don't **think** she's gotten it in the mail yet so I'm ruining the surprise a bit! HAHA! I started with glossy paper and heat embossed the Honeycomb background with white embossing powder. Then, I had some fun and added some Distress Stains (Faded Jeans, Peeled Paint, Frayed Burlap, Wild Honey) with my Aqua Painter to create a fun watercolor look! It was REALLY hard to capture in the photo, but it looks really cool in real life! 

I heat embossed the sentiment and hearts (Simple Joys and Follow Your Heart) with black embossing powder on vellum so that the honeycomb pattern would shine through! 

I hope you love your card and have a FABULOUS birthday, Angelica! I can't wait to see you next week at CHA!!!

From here, hope on over to Kim's blog!

  10. I love the white embossed honeycomb background. It just occurred to me that I was thinking it was chicken wire and that is why I went with a cow/farm theme. Beautiful card and I also like the way you embossed the sentiment on vellum! Thanks for sharing!
