Jubilation Felicitations

Published June 5, 2012 by isisimaginings

Evening all, how goes it with you?  It’s the end of an extra long bank holiday weekend here in the UK – the Brits have been celebrating the Queen’s 60 years on the throne in fine style, with enormous pomp & pageantry, which they do brilliantly.

I wasn’t celebrating, but I needed to make a birthday card & as I had some freebie Papermania papers, I thought why not go for red, white & blue?


I stamped the Tim Holtz dress form & button stamps on it with Coffee Archival ink – second & third generation stamping, so that the images would be quite faint.  Then I blended Antique Linen & Frayed Burlap distress inks over the top.


The chipboard dress form is from Craftwork Cards.  I stamped the swirl with Versamark, then heat set white embossing powder on top, before colouring it with distress inks – Walnut Stain, Tea Dye & Gathered Twigs.  I put Frayed Burlap & Walnut Stain distress stickles on top.


I cut the rosette from another piece of the Papermania paper using a Tim Holtz die, added the Idea-ology gear, Ranger Beadazzles & the hat pins.  The hinges are a PaperArtsy die.  I covered a scrap piece of Kraft card with washi tape, (LOVE washi tape), then cut two hinges.


I attached everything to a 20x20cm, scalloped edge, white card, which I edged with Antique Linen DI & that’s it.  What do you think?

Thanks for looking, until next time,

Love & light.
