Glimmer glamour …

70th birthday for Anne

Today’s card was inspired by one of my cakes.

The silver glimmer paper looked quite striking against the basic black card,

and looked so sparkly and pretty in real life …

  My daughter’s friend asked me to make the cake

in black and silver, with feathers …

I was really pleased with how both the card and the cake turned out.


Here’s what you need to make today’s card – all supplies from Stampin’ Up!:

cardstock: basic black, whisper white, silver glimmer paper; stamps: memorable moments; ink: basic grey; punches: small star; accessories: labels collection framelits, big shot, stampin’ dimensionals; additional: black feather.

Thanks for dropping by today
