Birthday Card for Elaine

One Birthday Card down and another 3 to go this month!  

I'd just received the new MCS Tattered Lace CDs and decided to use them to make this card!  The "book" image is from the Tattered Lace CD2 and I printed off two copies, one was layered onto card and then cut out the other was cut out and the edges trimmed.  The trimmed "book" was placed on top of the other one and the "pages" arranged to give them a slight curved appearance and to give the card more depth.  The lovely rose image is from Tattered Lace CD1 and has been decoupaged.

I used Sakura Stardust in Gold to add highlights to the roses, while I used a gold metallic marker to give the edges of the papers a gilded and then gave the finished card a quick skoosh with gold Spray and Sparkle.  The velum "lace" at the bottom edge of the card came with the Tattered Lace CDs.  The finished card was made up as an easel card to enable it to stand up.

Had some more problems with the MCS Professional software, I do wish they'd fix it instead of tempting folks with new designs!  If it crashed once it did it half a dozen times. Weird stuff is also still happening - reported problems to MCS ages ago but there are some that remain to be fixed!
