Hello and welcome to a very special blog post!
Today, a few of us are celebrating Julie Mogford’s birthday – Julie is one half of the sensational team behind Winnie & Walter. Her partner, Shay, has put together this wonderful blog hop in honour of Julie’s big day.
You may not know this about me, but I have a very difficult time of throwing things away, especially anything that is covered in Distress Inks 😉 For my focal element, I used a pile of coloured panels leftover from making this card to create what I am calling ‘a layered stack of Distress Ink goodness’. I did this because I think Julie is a bit partial to Distress Inks 😉
The apertures left from die-cutting the hearts out of these panels made such an interesting effect, so I jauntily adhered them together to allow all the various colours to peek through. I also added a piece of kraft cardstock behind the whole lot for some interest – the woodgrain pattern is heat embossed in gold.
The sentiment comes from Winnie & Walter’s The Big, The Bold and The Happy and was heat embossed in gold onto the banner image from The Big, The Bold and The Extras. I fussy cut the banner out and adhered to the coloured panels.
I added a small heart and some sequins around the card to finish up and was really pleased with the way it turned out – I hope Julie likes it too!
Happy Birthday Julie 😉
