About Spelling

If you follow my blog or know me at all, you will soon realize that I spell certain words differently from what you are used to seeing on most web sites. This is because I am Canadian and I am a spelling NUT. It drives me crazy when things are misspelled. So naturally, it would rub me the wrong way to purposely leave out letters from words that I know need them. Canadian spelling is actually a blend of British and U.S.

SPARKLY B-DAY WINDOW CARD





Forever Young and Pretty


For the feminine woman who loves pink, flowers, birds and sparkle, this card knocked it out of the park on all points. 

Two Fall birthdays in my family are for women I dearly love; my sister and my daughter. I made two different versions of the card to suit their individual personalities. Here is the first one.




window bday card with sparkle and shine, front

I've been making a lot of cards lately with various kinds of windows. For this large window style, the inside has to be just as pretty as the front.

Card size is 5-3/4" square.

The window is a sturdy acrylic that I embossed with birds and leaves (perfect for my gardener recipient).

The cardstock I used for the front frame and inside verse are both from DCWV Cherry Limade Stack. The selections in this book are all beautiful -- some have foil accents, some have glitter. Sparkly model on the front is cut from DCWV Glitzy Glitter, and it surely IS that! The hardest part was choosing one from the many great options!

I was inspired to make this card by Sheila, of She's a Sassy Lady blog. Sheila shared a tutorial two years ago and I loved what she did with it.  Link to Sheila's original post and video: Making a window card with a large window

Watch for  my next post featuring a similar design.

One more picture of this design 

Light shining through the "glass" reflects swirly branches and birds.

Wishing you a sparkling, beautiful day!

  2. I thought I commented on your beautiful card when you first posted. I'm seeing it again with your second window card and just had to tell you how beautiful it is.

About Me

My photo
I guess you might call me a "right brainer", loving all things creative. Cardmaking is the perfect hobby for me as it allows me to be totally creative, combining design with poetry or verses I can compose myself. With Christmas being such an important occasion for cardmaking and crafting, I decided to create a separate blog just for Christmas projects. "It's All About Christmas" will host all my Christmas items. "Gracenotes For Today" will still feature items every other occasion of the year. I hope you'll drop by often and stay awhile!
