Happy Birthday Kate!

Hello everyone!  If you're new to my Blog, welcome! And if you're one of my regular followers, thanks for joining me again!

A very special lady turned 25 last week. Birthdays are a very special celebration at the best of times and none more so than someone with a life threatening condition.  Kate is one of Stephanie's Rett Sisters and I have known Kate and her mum for a very long time.

I wanted to create a card that represented Kate's life.  At the moment she is smashing life goals and living her dreams - hence the dream catcher theme. I am really pleased with the end result although after photographing, I decided to add some bling.  What a difference that made! 

And with the added Gilded Gems:

Lots of products were used to create my card but it was totally worth it for such a special lady.

Supplies needed:
  • Blossoms in Bloom stamp set for sentiment
  • A Grand Kid stamp set for inside sentiment - So Smart, So Fun, So Sweet and So Wonderful
  • Night of Navy card stock card base
  • Gold Foil card stock
  • Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper (DSP)
  • Whisper White card stock for the inside and sentiment
  • Night of Navy Ink for sentiment
  • Gold Hoops Embellishments
  • Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack
  • Scalloped Lace Trim
  • Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper
  • Gilded Gems
Other items:
  • Mini Dimensionals
  • Glue Dots
  • Fine Tip Glue Pen

To make the dream catcher, I found a You Tube video by Elaine Dotson from Elaine's Custom Cards.  For the 'feathers' on my dream catcher, I trimmed down the large fern leaf from the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty paper and attached them with Fine Tip Glue Pen
