Birthday Focal Point
I love how this card turned out. I used Yana Smakula's perfect card making formula to make this for my daughter's 19th birthday. I use to make my own "word greeting" background cardstock pieces. This is the last of it. I always liked those pieces and I believe I need to make more because the graphic black and white is very nice. My daughter likes black cards, but she also loves old fashioned items with florals.
I didn't have any foil or I would have made the frame in black foil. I used glitter paper instead. I used Copics to color the floral image, punched out a butterfly and added some darker copic markings to it, then I added a banner with a greeting. I also added a clear gemstone to the side of the focal point frame. Voila. The stitched edge outer frame was all it needed.
I am in love with Yana's cards and this formula she uses can be modified as you can see. She uses a white background, but I used a black and white one. She uses foil but I used glitter paper. It is close enough to the original formula and I will definitely keep this in mind when trying to create another special card.
